Offers will be sent out on National Offer Day at the start of March 2024. It is important to note that there is a catchment area with priority given to applicants based on distance from the school.

How can I register my child for the Chesham Grammar School 11 Plus (11+) exams?

If your child’s current primary school is in Buckinghamshire, they will be automatically registered for the 11+ exam. You, as their parent/guardian, will still need to submit a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which you can download through the school website.

If your child currently lives outside of Buckinghamshire, you will need to register their place for the 11+ exam through the Buckinghamshire Council website. You must request more information through the admissions section, selecting the query option ‘I would like information about testing for September 2021 entry or later’ to access information and register your interest in the STT.

What is the 11 Plus (11+) entrance exam format for Chesham Grammar School?

The entrance exam is called the Secondary Transfer Test (STT) and consists of two 60-minute papers which are provided by GL Assessment. The test will measure the following skills:

Paper 1

  • English and verbal reasoning (50% weighting)

Paper 2

  • Non-verbal reasoning (25% weighting) – includes spatial reasoning
  • Maths (25% weighting)

The exam is administered by The Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools (TBGS), a consortium composed of the thirteen grammar schools in Buckinghamshire. 

A few days before your child takes the official exam, they will take a shorter practice test to help them to better understand the format of the entrance exam. As previously mentioned, Buckinghamshire primary school or partner school students will sit the test at their school but all other children will sit the test at a grammar school centre.

To be considered for admission into Chesham Grammar School, your child must achieve a pass mark of 121 or higher. Notably, the assessments are age-weighted (based on the candidate’s age and the assessment date) to ensure all candidates are equally considered. 

You will be able to access these results in October through the Buckinghamshire Council website. The details you will need for the Transfer Test results are:

  • Your child’s student number (which will have been provided in a letter or email)
  • Your child’s surname
  • Your child’s date of birth
  • Your name and email address as the parent or legal guardian
