Requests to go onto the Altrincham College waiting list must be made directly to Trafford School Admissions not directly to the school.
If you would like your child/ward to be added to our waiting list, please apply via the Trafford School Admissions Portal. The link to this is as follows:
If you scroll down and click on 'Apply for a place - Trafford Application Portal' and then please follow the instructions. Trafford will then notify us so that we can add your child/ward to the waiting list for the relevant year group. 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.
You will normally receive a letter from us within 10 school days from the date that we receive the information from Trafford.
(For applications to the Sixth Form, please contact the Head of Sixth Form: Mrs K Brennan).
Parents have been known to give a false address in an attempt to improve their chances of getting a place. Please note that any offer made will be withdrawn if it is found that parents or carers have given false information.
Please note: once you have received this offer letter you must contact the Admissions Department at school to confirm you accept the offer and discuss a suitable start date. A request for you to complete our online enrolment process, along with further information about Altrincham College, will be sent to you via email.
If you have not been successful in obtaining a place for your secondary school-aged child (current Year 7 - 11) at Altrincham College and wish to appeal against this decision, you must lodge your intention to do so by contacting Head of Admissions.
