What are the real chances of getting into a Bucks Grammar School?

Buckinghamshire has almost a full provision of Grammar Schools. In Kent for instance the top 25% of primary school pupils will find a place , in Bucks the figure is a little lower but chances are still very good compared to many other areas which are much tougher.

There will be plenty of children who are capable of getting into the highest zone of marks who don’t manage it on the day for a variety of reasons. One of the core reasons some children will get through and others won’t is simply how they deal with the pressure on the day.
