Yes, Urmston still has the top 20 rule. So please tell me why Urmston is your favorite?

Do Urmston still accept the top 20 for automatic entry irrespective of catchment?

It was my favourite school in Trafford but we settled for AGGS since it's within walking distance.

I liked the kids, especially the one who showed us around.I liked the theatre,cricket pitch and pavilion and it had a "happy" feel to it.

I agree plus it is co-ed even if there is good evidence single sex girls schools do better at STEM subjects but for all round development co-ed are best for boys and girls.

Que, g55 to contradict me on the STEM issue.

I just go where the evidence leads me ,I never, say anything directed personally towards my fellow members but inevitably end up having a scrap with just about everyone :roll:

"A result! I feel honoured :)" :lol: :lol: :lol:

I know it was a million years ago, but I went to Urmston Grammar School. It was a great school. Loved it. I honestly don't think it has changed too much.
