Welcome to The Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools.

The Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools (TBGS) is a company set up by the thirteen grammar schools in Buckinghamshire in order to manage and administer The Buckinghamshire Secondary Transfer Test.

All the Buckinghamshire grammar schools are academies and therefore their own admissions authorities, but following their academy conversion the thirteen schools were very keen to continue their long tradition of working together. They wanted to maintain a coordinated selection system using a common secondary transfer test to select pupils for entry into all Buckinghamshire grammar schools at 11+ each year, to avoid an admissions and testing ‘free for all’ which would be to the detriment of children and families. In order to do this, TBGS was established.
