Its my understanding in the same good schools guide Wolverhampton Girls High School is the West Midlands State Secondary School of the year.This is quite an achievement considering the wide levels of ability intake its cohorts represent as evidenced by the 11 plus entry marks compared to similar selective schools in the area.I think the school its teachers and the Headmistress can be rightly proud of their efforts to their pupils' success.

Congratulations to Altrincham Grammar School for Girls.

Excellent report. Congratulations! Point to note that over 350 applicants pass the AGGS entrance exam; this is extremely encouraging for children and parents.

There is no serious culling in sixth form.It is not superselective-unlike QE or St Olave's School. .

Both schools need to reflect and reconsider their draconian policies.

It is not perfect- large classes and over worked teachers find it difficult to compete with our private schools despite AGGS students being naturally brighter than the average Indie candidate .

AGGS is still somewhat behind Withington Girls School- university admission tutors should take notice of my comment and contextual their offers - we have a reasonably wide range of abilities range and socio-economic background although those entitled to FSM is still dismally low but I digress.

Take the tables with a pinch of salt - they don't tell the whole story .
