Grammar schools and Secondary Transfer Testing - 2019 Entry

3. Test dates

Children who go to Buckinghamshire LA primary and Partner schools take the Practice and Secondary Transfer Tests at school on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 11 September 2018 - Practice Test
  • Thursday 13 September 2018 - Secondary Transfer Test

Children from out of county schools will be tested on the same days, usually at one of the Buckinghamshire grammar schools.

The parents of children due to be tested at a grammar school will be emailed during July to confirm the date, time and school where their child will be tested.

The parents of children taking the Secondary Transfer Test at a grammar school will receive an ‘Identification and Fit for Secondary Transfer Testing' form with their testing invitation.  The completed form must be brought to the Secondary Transfer Testing session at the grammar school on 13 September as, without it, it will not be possible for the child to take the test. The purpose of this form is not only to enable the parent to confirm that their child is well on the test date but also to provide a photograph to confirm the identity of the child undertaking testing.

Children attending Buckinghamshire LA and Partner schools are not required to complete this form as their identity does not need confirming.

Children living abroad

Children currently living abroad will not be tested until they return to the UK.
