In 2022, the Trafford Grammar Schools Consortium announced a change of provider for candidates wishing to take the entrance examination in September 2023. The move to GL Assessments was necessitated by the withdrawal of CEM from the market and has been made by grammar schools across the country.
To ensure the return of examination results before parents complete their local authority school selections, GL Assessments have informed us that we must bring the entrance exam date earlier for this year. This will enable them to complete the necessary marking and standardisation on time.
We wish to announce, therefore, that the Trafford Consortium’s entrance examination will now take place on Tuesday 5 September 2023. Further details about the application process will be released on our school websites after Easter.
