Buckinghamshire County 11+ Examinations
Girls leave High March at the age of 11 to begin their secondary education at a wide range of senior schools. In their final year with us the majority of pupils take the Buckinghamshire County 11+ examinations in 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 excellent 11+ results which compare very favourably with the County-wide pass rate of 31%. We celebrated an excellent pass rate of 89% in 2010; in the academic years 2009-10 and 2008-9 we also achieved high pass rates of 89% and 79% respectively.
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 2010 to 2011 the following scholarships were awarded to High March pupils:
In recent years pupils have entered the following Independent Senior Schools:
