2023 Admissions

Our Admissions Policy for 2023 can be found here.  You might also like to view our virtual Open Evening here.

You can check if you reside within our catchment area for 2023 admissions by using the Buckinghamshire Council catchment area checker which can be found here.

Children born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012 will be moving up to secondary school to begin Year 7 in September 2023.

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.

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 2022) is dealt with on our behalf by Buckinghamshire Council.  Registration opens in October 2022; further details are available here.
