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

Registering your child for the Late Transfer Test

You can register your child for testing between 2 October and 11:59pm on 20 October 2023.

How to send evidence to us

If we require evidence from you, send this to us using our contact us form.

Tell us the name and date of birth of your child with any evidence you send.

Address evidence

This must be provided for all applications no later than 20 October 2023. The address used for the first round of allocations will be the address at which the child is resident on 20 October 2023.

The address you enter on the online registration form must be the child's 'normal home address’ (where you and your child live together and is the child's only/main residence).

Proof of residence must be provided to confirm this, in the form of a Council Tax bill and current utility bill (gas or electric but not water no more than 3 months old).

Living overseas

If you are currently living overseas and moving to the UK or returning to your own property in Buckinghamshire for the academic year September 2024, the address which will be used for the first allocation will be the address in which your child is living on 20 October 2023.

You will be required to provide proof of residence. 

A Buckinghamshire address will not be considered as the home address until we have evidence that your child is residing at that address. This will include Council Tax bill, a utility bill showing usage, and further evidence to show you have relocated.

Service families

Where service families or families of other crown servants, who often move within the UK and abroad are posted to the area, a unit postal address or quartering area address will be sufficient in the absence of a new home address.

Moving into Buckinghamshire

If you have moved into the area after the deadline of the 20 October 2023, refer to our in-year admissions process.

Types of evidence we can accept

Sibling evidence

Send us the full name and date of birth of the sibling. If you do not tell us, your child may be ranked incorrectly.

Free School Meals evidence

Send us your NI Number, your date of birth and the first 3 letters of your surname, so that we may confirm entitlement.

Pupil Premium evidence

Send us a dated and signed letter from your child’s current school.

Exceptional medical and social evidence

Some (not all) schools have an ‘exceptional medical or social needs’ rule that applicants can be considered under.

Check this on each grammar school’s admissions policy.

If you would like to apply under this rule, you will need to submit evidence to us when you make your application.

This rule is not used to determine any adjustments to the grammar testing process for your child. If you wish to use the exceptional medical and social evidence rule, you will only be able to apply for that one grammar school.
