Apply for a late transfer grammar school test (12 and 13 plus)


The late transfer process is for the parents of pupils who would like their child to be tested for possible entry to year 8 or year 9 of a grammar school in September 2023.

For 2022 entry late transfer, only 1 grammar school was able to offer a place for 2022 entry to those who qualified.

No places were offered for September 2022 entry into Year 9.

As there are very few late transfer grammar school places available to allocate to those who qualify, you should consider whether you wish for your child to follow through the process without any guarantee of a grammar school place being offered.

When you can register

From 3 October you can register for testing for entry to:

  • Aylesbury Grammar School
  • Aylesbury High School
  • Beaconsfield High School
  • Burnham Grammar School
  • Chesham Grammar School
  • John Hampden Grammar School
  • The Royal Latin School - Year 8 only
  • Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School

For testing for entry into any other Buckinghamshire grammar school, you must refer directly to each school’s website. Do not include any other schools as we will not process these.

Consider carefully your grammar school preferences. If you decide to register your child for testing, we encourage you to list your true preferences. Preference changes after the first round of allocations will only be accepted where there has been an evidenced change of circumstance for example a change of home address.
