The Highcrest Academy

ADMISSION for Year 7 in 2021

The Highcrest Academy is an All Ability Academy. This is a unique choice for parents in Buckinghamshire.  To achieve a balanced intake reflecting the ability of all students who apply, we ask all applicants to take a Banding Test, (Non Verbal Reasoning Test). Students will then be arranged in four bands, each representing 25% of the ability range as indicated by the Banding Test. Places will be offered equally to each band applying the criteria set out in the Admissions policy.

Banding Tests for the Year 7 2021 intake will be taking place on the following dates:
