The Altrincham area has 49 primary schools (one of the top being Well Green Primary School with 34% of pupils achieving at a higher standard).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“This is an outstanding school. It provides an excellent education for its pupils and excellent value for money. This largely matches the school's view of itself. Pupils consistently attain high standards by the end of Year 6. A key feature is the determined leadership of the headteacher who has a very clear sense of direction, correct and imaginative priorities and the energy and will to get things done. The views of the majority of parents are very positive, regarding the school highly and highlighting, asstrengths, the school's effective monitoring of their children's progress and the excellent results. Achievement is outstanding.”

The Altrincham local authority has an average of 77% of students meeting the expected standards in reading, writing, and maths at primary school age (vs England's average of 65%). And has an average of 18% achieving higher standard (vs England's average of 11%).

“Students enter the school with well above average levels of attainment overall when compared to all schools nationally, although the school's admission policy results in a lower than average attainment on entry when compared to most other grammar schools. The end of Key Stage 3 national assessments in 2007 reveal students reaching very high attainment levels in English, mathematics and science. Outstanding progress is made throughout the school and GCSE examination results in 2007 show that 100% of students gained at least five A* to C grades including mathematics and English. In all subjects at GCSE standards are above average. The proportion of students achieving the highest A*/A grades is four times the national average. This represents exceptionally high standards and outstanding achievement.”
