Hi! Our daughter is now in year4 and we have been thinking about secondary schools. Does anyone know if Dr Challoners High School is any good, especially compared to other Bucks grammars? I cant find any grammar rankings anywhere!

Thank you

Hi!

I dont think there are any official league tables anymore as such, but i've found this really useful list: https://blog.thinkacademy.uk/best-grammar-schools-in-the-uk/

According to this Dr Challoners is 6 in the country and second in Buckinghamshire, so a very good grammar! I've also heard only good things about it

Hi, I thought this might be the best place to ask - given that Dr Challoners ranks so highly, id entry more competitive than for other schools? Do applicants need better 11+ scores?

Hi Maggie!

Entry might be more competitive, but if that's the case a better 11+ score won't actually help you! Places are allocated (to those who have passed the 11+) based on where applicants live, not based on their scores.

I don't actually know how many applicants they tend to get, but as you say given that they rank so highly I imagine they are popular!
