Admissions information for 2024 entry to Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School at 11 Plus (11+)

Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School does not currently have any upcoming open events, however, you can find some helpful welcome videos here and here

Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School is part of the Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools Consortium (BGSC) and follows its coordinated admissions process. The entrance test for BGSC schools is called The Buckinghamshire Secondary Transfer Test (STT), which will take place on 14 September 2023. 

All the schools in the consortium use the same academic test to assess candidates. This means that if your child is applying for an academic place at a number of these schools, they will only need to take the test once. 

Results will be released in early October and, after receiving this information, you must submit a Common Application Form (CAF) to your local authority, naming ‘Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School’. Please note that the order you place schools on your CAF is reflected as your preference. 

Admission to Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School is extremely competitive. The published admissions number (PAN) of students for Year 7 2024 entry is 180. The school has implemented a set of oversubscription criteria to allocate these spaces: 

  • Looked after, or previously looked after, children and students who qualify for free school meals 
  • Students who qualify for Pupil Premium 
  • Siblings of students at the school
  • Children of staff members who have worked at the school for two or more years
  • Students living in the catchment area of the school
  • Any remaining places will be offered in distance order

 

If any vacancies arise between National Offer Day (1 March 2024) and 31 December 2024, Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School will implement a waiting list, which is also ranked using the oversubscription criteria.

How can I register my child for the 11 Plus (11+) exam at Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School

Children who attend a state-funded Buckinghamshire primary school are automatically entered for the Secondary Transfer Test (STT) and, therefore, do not need to register. However, children who attend Partner Schools, independent schools or a primary school outside of Buckinghamshire must register before 16 June 2023. 

To begin the registration process, you should find more information through the admissions section of the Buckinghamshire Council website. You should select 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 Sir Henry Floyd 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)

Both papers are taken on the same day with a short break in between. Candidates must achieve a standardised score of 121 or above to be considered for entry to a Buckinghamshire grammar school. 

 

Children who attend a state-funded Buckinghamshire primary or Partner School will sit both the practice and official STT in their school. Children who attend any other school will sit both the practice and official STT at a grammar school test centre. The practice test is on 12 September 2023 and the official test is two days later on 14 September 2023.
