About us


Altrincham College is an 11-18 Academy, situated in the South of Manchester in the Borough of Trafford. It is a specialist Arts College as well as holding an additional specialism in Maths & Computing. It was one of the first secondary schools in England to receive an ‘outstanding’ grading from Ofsted under their new, tougher, 2012 framework. This is just a few of the comments made by Ofsted about this outstanding school.

“Altrincham College is an outstanding school in which inspirational leadership, exceptional care and consistently high-quality teaching enables all groups of students to flourish. Achievement is outstanding; students make excellent progress from starting points which are generally below those found nationally. Teachers’ detailed knowledge of the particular skills and achievements of all students within their classes enables them to design lessons to meet differing needs. The school keeps all aspects of its performance under constant review and takes rigorous but supportive action if any student is deemed to be underachieving in relation to their challenging individual targets. Ambitious and principled leadership by the headteacher ensures that the school is continually looking to raise its own performance. “
