Buckinghamshire County 11+ Examinations

In Year 6, the girls’ final year at High March, the majority of pupils take the Buckinghamshire County 11+ examinations in Verbal, Mathematical and Non-Verbal Reasoning for entry into the local state grammar schools, including Beaconsfield High School, Dr Challoner’s High School, Sir William Borlase School and Wycombe High School. We are very proud of our impressive 11+ results which compare extremely favourably with the County-wide pass rate of 31%. In 2018 we celebrated an excellent qualification rate of 78%. In 2019 we celebrated a qualification rate of nearly 70%.

Entrance Examinations and Scholarships for Independent Senior Schools at 11+

We believe that it is important to offer the girls and their parents a wide range of choices at 11 and so many girls will take both the Buckinghamshire County 11+ examinations and entrance examinations for a variety of independent senior schools, both boarding and day. The 11+ Common Entrance syllabus is taught in English, Mathematics and Science and this equips the girls for any of the entrance examinations set by the senior school of their choice. Girls are also prepared for scholarship examinations and the school is very proud of its success rate in academic, music and general scholarships.

In the academic year 2018 to 2019 the following scholarships were awarded to High March pupils:

  • Academic Scholarship to Queen Anne’s School
  • Academic Scholarship to Royal Masonic School
  • Academic Scholarship to St Mary’s School, Gerrards Cross
  • Academic Scholarship to Stephen Perse School, Cambridge
  • Academic Scholarship to The Perse School, Cambridge
  • Creative Writing Scholarship to St Mary’s School, Cambridge
  • Drama Scholarship to Queen Anne’s, Caversham
  • Music Scholarship to St Mary’s School, Cambridge
  • Sport Scholarship to Berkhamsted School
