Admissions to Year 7 September 2018

Admissions to Year 7 September 2018

Parents/Carers are not required to complete any additional forms for entry into Year 7 (September 2018).  Applications are to be made via your own Local Authority. 

The deadline for returning your Common Application Form (CAF) to your Local Authority was 31st October 2017.

If you have missed this deadline, please contact the School Admissions Department at the Local Authority in which you reside.

Offers for a Year 7 September 2018 entry will go out on 1st March 2018. If, on that date, you are not successful in securing a place for your child, you can do two things:

1.  Request to go on the waiting list for Altrincham College

Requests to go onto the waiting list must be made directly to Trafford School Admissions not directly to the school. 

Please put your request in writing to Trafford School Admissions Department (either via email to or on paper to School Admissions, Waterside House, Waterside, Sale, M33 7ZF), giving your child’s name, Date of Birth, home address and the name of the desired school.

The waiting list is held in strict accordance with Altrincham College’s over-subscription criteria and not on a first come first served basis. This waiting list will be held, in accordance with our Admissions Policy 2018, until the end of the Autumn term.

2.  You may also choose to appeal against the decision not to allocate your child a place.

If you are choosing to appeal against the decision, you must lodge your intention to do so directly to Mrs N Eastwood at Altrincham College. 
You can do this via email: or, if you do not have email access, by telephone on 0161 980 7173.

When lodging your intention to appeal, please ensure you provide the following details:

  • Child's name
  • Child's Date of Birth
  • Child's current school
  • Parent/Carer's name(s)
  • Postal address and contact number

Appeal hearings for a place in Year 7 for September 2018 will take place during May 2018.
