List of all the local schools and contact details

There's a lot of information there about the local authority schools on the Bucks County Council website.

OFSTED reports for all schools, just type in your postcode for local results. Take these with a pinch of salt though. Some are up to 9 years old.

The BBC website has loads of information. In particular, the league tables are nicely presented here.

When approaching secondary transfer, the state system in Bucks is based on the 11+ test (taken at 10+). Those who pass are eligible for grammar schools and/or upper schools, whilst the others (unless they successfully appeal) are only eligible for upper schools.

As Paul says above, the Bucks CC website has lots of useful info (including catchment maps and postcode checkers), but for specific info about everything related to the 11+, the site I found most useful was:
