The Highcrest Academy

Year 7 Admissions 2024

We look forward to welcoming you to our ‘All Ability” Academy in September 2024.

Pupils entering the Academy since September 2013 have been admitted following the ‘new’ Admissions Policy.

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

Banding Tests have been completed for admissions in September 2024. Should you have any queries regarding banding tests or admissions, please contact the academy on 01494 529866.
