I wondered if anyone has any experience of Altrincham College or Arts? We are thinking about secondary for my son. It's our nearest school. My son is quite shy and sensitive and I wonder if he'll cope. Is it a nice environment?
Does anyone know if Wellington take strictly from distance only or do theyou have any other criteria (apart from siblings, looked after children etc)?
If Altrincham College of Arts is your local school, are you not also in the catchment for Wellington (I think they generally take 1.2/1.3 miles as the crow flies). The admission criteria for both is on the websites. I don't have children there but know lots of people who send their children to Wellington - no-one locally has opted for Altrincham College of Arts, I anticipate this is probably due to results.
