John Hampden Grammar School

Admissions

All parents and pupils interested in applying to the school are welcome, indeed encouraged, to visit us. Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.

As from March 2013, appeals against decisions not to admit students are heard by the Independent Appeals Panel (IAP) for John Hampden Grammar School. 

Here are the 2018 admission rules. They were consulted and were then formally determined by the Governing Body.

For admission deadlines for pupils applying for years 8 and 9: JHGS is part of the Bucks County Council consortium and their portal opens for applications at the end of October http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/education/schools/admissions-and-moving-school/grammar-schools-transfer-test/late-transfer-procedure/late-transfer-procedure-2017/ The testing date is Saturday 4th February.

Children born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 will be moving up to secondary school to begin Year 7 in September 2018. If you would like your child to go to a Buckinghamshire grammar school then they need to take the Transfer Tests. If your child does not go to a Buckinghamshire LA primary school, you must register them to take the Transfer Tests and this can be done on the Buckinghamshire County Council website:-
