Invest in our Future

On Saturday April 20th 1912, Sir Alfred Hopkinson, the Vice Chancellor of Manchester University officially opened the School on this site and in his speech, he said that The Altrincham County High School for Boys (as it was known until 1934) “was of the modern Grammar School type where secondary education of the highest character could be given”. He regarded the formation of character and the turning out of “able good men” as the primary object of the School.

At Altrincham Grammar School for Boys, we provide an education for each and every student which is unparalleled in breadth and quality of opportunity, but in order to maintain this we need facilities to match our vision. We continue to face significant financial challenges.

We are an “Outstanding” School (Ofsted, November 2022), one of the most successful schools in the country, however, it might surprise you to learn we also remain one of the lowest funded schools in the country. AGSB has occupied its current site for well over a century and has some rapidly deteriorating learning and teaching spaces – many are not fit for purpose and educating in the modern world -and so, this is where you come in.

Agsb annual fund

The funding landscape in which we operate remains challenging. Like all state schools, we are facing year on year reductions in our funding. As a school, we are working hard to ensure that the AGSB Experience – the thing that makes this school so special to our students – is not threatened. But to do this, we need your help. Without additional income from the AGSB Annual Fund, AGSB would not be able to compete as one of the very best state-funded schools in the country.

The fund helps us to realise our site master plan, enhances the learning environment and ensures that our co-curricular programme can continue to flourish. Our new site masterplan includes a new Reception area, development of the 6th Form Centre, creation of a Multi Faith space and the building of a new Drama and Music Centre. Through the kindness and generosity of the AGSB community, our pupils can continue to experience AGSB at its best.
