About Us Founded in 1910, Altrincham Grammar School for Girls is proud of its long tradition of academic success, sporting and cultural achievement and caring service to the community.Today's pupils (1268 on roll, including 323 in the sixth form) are encouraged to maintain the highest standards of the past while preparing to play their part in the increasingly technological world of tomorrow. Enjoyment of learning, self-discipline, concern for others and opportunities for leadership lie at the heart of the school's ethos.
Every girl is valued equally and encouraged to develop her potential to the full. The school is situated in Bowdon and has excellent all weather sports facilities adjacent on the Devisdale. These include two full size all weather hockey pitches, a grass hockey pitch, six netball courts and a long jump pit. The hockey pitches are used for athletics and rounders in summer and the netball courts provide six tennis courts. A block for English, Drama, ICT and Mathematics opened in March 2002 and a new library was completed in September 2002. In November 2006 a £2.4m building programme was completed, which include three state-of-the-art science laboratories, a wonderful new staff common room and dining area, and a stunning reception area.
The old Breeze Hill house was demolished and a new build erected in 2011. Here can be found History and Geography classrooms, an ICT suite and a state-of-the-art training facility which, since AGGS became a Teaching School, is in constant use. In our most recent Ofsted inspection in September 2008 the school was judged 'outstanding' in every area: overall effectiveness, achievement and standards, personal development and wellbeing and quality of provision.
