Who needs to register for the Secondary Transfer Test?

Children who attend a Buckinghamshire LA primary school are automatically registered and will sit the test in their current school. Children who attend Partner Schools need to be registered for testing however, they will sit the test in their current school.  

Children who attend all other schools will need to be registered for testing, and will sit the test at central venues in Buckinghamshire.

How do parents register for testing?

We are using the Bucks online application portal for parents to register their child for testing. 

This year parents will register their child for testing on the online portal, designed specifically for testing registration and this will be accessed on the Grammar Schools and Transfer Test page on the Bucks CC website.
