Application Guidance

In-Year Transfers

Parents of children who are already of Secondary School age and wish to transfer to Altrincham College must apply directly to the school, using the In-Year Transfer Application Form below.

Please note this application form is for in year transfer admission for Years 7 – 11 only.

For applications to the Sixth Form, please contact the Head of Sixth Form: Ms K Tovey

Please read and familiarise yourself with the following In-Year Transfer Information before making your application:
  • Make sure that the information you provide is factually correct.

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 Please note that any offer made will be withdrawn if it is found that the parents or carers have given false information.

  • Applications for an In-Year Transfer will normally be processed within 10 school days of receipt.
  • As its own admission authority, the school will consider the application in strict accordance with the relevant published admissions policy.
  • Where a place is available, Mrs N Eastwood will write to notify you of the date by which your child is to be admitted.

Once you have received this letter you must contact her at the school to arrange admission. Allocated places must be taken up by the date specified in the offer letter.

  • Where no place is available, you will be notified of this in writing and be invited to join the waiting list for the particular year group that you applied for.
  • Waiting lists will be ranked in accordance with our published over subscription criteria (details of which can be found in the relevant admissions policy)
  • Waiting lists will not give priority to children based on the date their application was received or when their name was added to the list.

Once you have read the above In-Year Transfer information, and are satisfied with our Admissions Policy, we invite you to download our In-Year Transfer Application Form.

Once this is completed, please return it either by post or as an email attachment to:
