Hello, and welcome!

Burnham Grammar is in Bucks, not Berks. I will move this thread to the Bucks section for you.

Burnham Grammar is continuing to use the Bucks CC 12+ that has been in place for several years. All the information you require can be found here: http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/school ... -procedure

That is correct, unless you are applying for immediate "in-year" testing, in which case they would enter Year 7. You can apply for in-year testing if you have recently moved to the area and therefore the child did not take the 11+.

Thanks,
Also i wanted to know when is the dealine for applying. And i have heard that lgs have a system from year8-11 where you can transfer to their school if places are available and the student in question is of the same academic ability for that year group? Is this true?

The timeline for this year has not yet been published, but the deadline last year was 31st October.

From the Langley Grammar School website:

Quote:
Year 8 – 11
Admission to other year groups will be subject to the availability of places, and the demonstration of a comparable standard of ability to the year group in question. This will be determined by tests set by the school, and by a favourable report from the applicant’s current school.

I am afraid I don't. I suspect that places are few and far between, but try asking the question on the Berks section.

It’s best to look at the school or schools you are most interested (since London is a very big place), and look on their websites under ‘In year admissions’.

Usually for grammars, they keep some sort of list of people who might be interest in a place. If a student leaves the school, the school will invite those on the list in to sit a test and they offer a place to one of those (usually the highest scoring).

So you are very dependent on other students leaving the school and doing well in any test the school set.
