2021 Admissions

2021 Admissions Policy

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. 

You can check if you reside within our catchment area for 2021 admissions by using the Buckinghamshire Council catchment area checker which can be found here.

Our Admissions Policy for 2021 can be found here.

Children born between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 will be moving up to secondary school to begin Year 7 in September 2021.

If you would like your child to go to a Buckinghamshire Grammar School then they need to take the Transfer Tests.  For further information about the test and the testing process please refer to the information on The Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools (TBGS) website and the Admissions pages on the Buckinghamshire Council website.

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 Council website: Visit the Buckinghamshire Council Site

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

Late transfer testing (i.e. for Year 8 and Year 9 in 2021) is dealt with on our behalf by Buckinghamshire Council.  Registration opens in October 2020; further details are available here.
