Does it mean that Lymm/Wilmslow are more academic than St Ambrose and Urmston?
It may expalin why most parents in Lymm care little for the grammars in Trafford!
in my DD primary only 2 applied for the the grammars both passed and going indie anyway!my dd and a boy who scored a massive 418 at ABGS 11+ who won a scholarship at The Grange a Oxbridge "shoe in "
some savy parents in Hale send their kids to Little Bollington which is a feeder school for LH and are in catchment for Alty boys school( and lower pass mark required), not so relevant to AGGS since all girls in Lymm who pass get in.
or even more savy parents who move to WA13 postcodes like Warbuton/Dunham who send their DC to Lymm primaries so gain almost automatic entry to LH , yet are in catchment for ABGS.
There is no limit to the ingenuity of such well informed parents!!
I know from a very reliable source, that the top sets( top 25%) at LH are on par as any Grammars in Trafford
I wish I had this level knowledge before I started this torturous journey , I could of saved myself a lot of unnecessary stress
