Admission to Year 7 in September 2017

Places will only be offered to students who have qualified after sitting the 11+ transfer test.   Testing has already taken place for entry in September 2017.  Grammar schools in Buckinghamshire take approximately the top 30% of the ability range. Our admission number for Year 7 is 150 but we anticipate offering additional places for September 2017.  We operate a waiting list when the school is over-subscribed.  Students are ranked according to our admissions policy which can be found above. Places may not be offered to all qualified out of catchment applicants in the first round of allocations although this does vary from year to year and it is  likely that some places will be offered in later rounds.

Students who have moved into the area since the end of June 2016 should contact Bucks County Council admissions team to arrange testing.

Who needs to register for the Secondary Transfer Test? 

Children who attend a Buckinghamshire LA primary school are automatically registered and will sit the test in their current school.  

Children who attend Partner Schools need to be registered for testing however, they will sit the test in their current school. 

Children who attend all other schools will need to be registered for testing, and will sit the test at central venues in Buckinghamshire. 

How do parents register for Testing? 

We are using Bucks CC online application portal for parents to register their child for testing. This year parents will register their child for testing on a new online portal, designed specifically for testing registration and this will be accessed on the Grammar Schools and Transfer Test page of the Bucks CC website. Those parents that need to register their child should use this route no matter where they live. If a family has difficulty in accessing the internet, we would recommend they ask a friend or relative, visit their local library or ask their child’s school if they can assist.
