The churches in Altrincham have been involved in educating local children since the mid-nineteenth century.
In 1969 the present school replaced the former schools of St George, St John and St Margaret to provide Christian education for the children of Altrincham and the surrounding parishes.
The involvement and commitment of the three parish churches still contribute in a real and lively way. They also provide financial assistance jointly with the L.E.A.
What it means to be a Church of England School
Altrincham C E Aided Primary School is a Church of England ‘Aided’ Primary School, which means that it has a strong link with the three local Parish Churches of St George’s, St Margaret’s, and St John’s, Altrincham and with the Chester Diocese.
A number of Foundation Governors are appointed to the school by the three Parish Church Councils. Additionally there is a close association with the local clergy and church community.
The School’s ‘Aided’ status means that the Governing body is responsible for appointing staff. This ensures that those appointed support the principles of a church school and its commitment to religious education and daily worship.
