Late transfer September 2021 entry

1. Overview


Due to national lockdown announced on 5 January the Late Transfer 2021 test date will be rescheduled to a later date. 

Parents of pupils who applied for testing will be informed as soon as a new test date is agreed by the grammar schools. 



The Late Transfer process for September 2022 admission will be available on this web site from September 2021


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 2021.

Please be aware that at Late Transfer only two grammar schools were able to offer places this year to those who qualified. Please consider whether you wish for your child to follow this process without any guarantee of a grammar school place being offered. 

From 2 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. Please do not include any other schools as we will not process these.

Some (not all) schools have an ‘exceptional medical or social needs’ rule that applicants can be considered under. Please refer to each grammar school’s admissions policy.   Please note that this rule is NOT used to determine any adjustments to the grammar testing process for your child.  If you would like to apply under this rule, you will need to submit evidence to us when you make your application.
