Secondary School Admissions for 2023


Despite your children still having over a year before they leave Quainton and move on to secondary school, we need to start thinking about the secondary school admissions process for 2023.


All parents will need to apply for a place at the secondary school of their choice using the Buckinghamshire County admissions website: . Please note applications cannot be made until September 6th 2022 and the last day to make application is 31st October 2022.


All Year 5 children on roll at Quainton will be automatically registered for the Secondary Transfer Test (11 plus) – for entry into a Buckinghamshire grammar school. This we be administered in school on Thursday 15th September 2022. If you do not wish your child to sit the test please inform the school before that date.


Buckinghamshire County Council have produced a very informative guide to the secondary admissions process and the Secondary Transfer Test. I have placed this information on our school website which can be accessed using the following link:

If you have any questions regarding the process please do not hesitate to ask.


Kind regards
