In-Year Admissions 7 to 11
Stretford Grammar School is currently oversubscribed and there are no places available in year 7 – 11.
Should you wish to register your child’s interest for a place that may become available, please complete an application using the Local Education Authority portal: www.trafford.gov.uk/admissions. School will be notified of the applications and we will contact parents. Your child’s name will be added to the in-year register and kept until the end of the academic year. Candidates may re-apply from the 1st September.
Should a place become available, we will contact all applicants on the register for that particular year group to arrange an assessment to ensure grammar school suitability. Those applicants who are successful in the assessment will be ranked in accordance with our Oversubscription Criteria.
These procedures apply both to candidates who have previously been unsuccessful in the School’s Testing procedure and to candidates who have not previously been tested. Candidates who have previously applied and sat the School’s In-Year Testing and who have not achieved the qualifying score for admission cannot re-apply in the same academic year and must leave a minimum of 12 months before applying for re-assessment.
Candidates who have previously been unsuccessful in the School’s Entrance Examination procedure are able to register to be reassessed in Summer Term after starting year 7.
Applicants applying to enter Years 7 – 8 will be assessed using mathematics, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning papers.
The minimum qualifying score is 353 which is 83% of the overall pass mark. Applicants who can demonstrate they are LAC or in receipt of Pupil Premium are expected to achieve 78% which is 332.
Applicants applying to enter Years 9 – 11 will be assessed using mathematics, English, and science papers consisting of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
The minimum qualifying scores will be English 75%, mathematics 65% and science 70%. Applicants who can demonstrate they are LAC or in receipt of Pupil Premium are expected to achieve English 70%, mathematics 65% and science 65%.
Under the terms of The School Standards and Framework Act 1998, all parents/carers of candidates refused admission have the right to an Independent Appeals Panel against any decision made by the School. The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on both the School and parents/carers.
Applications for candidates in Years 7 to 9 who have previously qualified for Stretford Grammar School will be considered in light of the availability of places and their position on the waiting list. Applicants who are currently in Year 9 and above who have previously qualified will be required to re-qualify.
Please note a successful outcome from an assessment does not guarantee a place at Stretford Grammar School. If any places are available we apply our over-subscription criteria.
Positions on the waiting list are subject to change and as such a candidate may move up or down the list as more students apply.
