While Wirral Grammar School for Girls has no official catchment area, they prioritize students living nearby when filling available spaces. This "closer proximity" is measured as the shortest road distance from a student's home to the nearest school gate. However, if the school deems a nearby footpath safe enough for walking, they may use that distance instead.

My child thoroughly enjoyed her 11+ journey at Progress Academy. She cried her eyes out when she had to miss class on sick days. Who knew 11+ could be so much fun! Thanks to the wonderful teachers for inducing a thirst for knowledge and competence. What more, a place secured in the school of our choice! I knew nothing about 11+ but Progress Academy provided me ample guidance to support my child. Totally recommend it! - Kamesh Vellore
