Wycombe High School is a girls’ grammar based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. A popular school, it caters for approximately 1350 pupils from various backgrounds in line with the motto Fortiter, Fideliter, Feliciter (Courageously, Faithfully, Joyfully). [1]


Wycombe High offers a flexible curriculum, adjusted to the cohort’s individual needs for quality education. Languages, science, STEAM and PSHEE are just some of its features, complementing a broad provision that allows students to enhance their learning capacity. 


Cookery, chess, athletics, drama, orchestra and DofE are among the many opportunities that underpin the school’s rich and thriving extracurricular programme. Trips abroad are organised regularly, allowing pupils to explore different cultural settings and spend some quality time with peers. [2]


According to OFSTED, Wycombe High operates in line with exemplary standards, hence the community of learners meets the school’s high expectations with ease. The intellectual, moral and social development of each child is at the heart of the ambitious ethos, resulting in strong outcomes that are well above the national standard.

As part of the assessment process for late transfer entry via the Annual testing route, your child will be asked to complete the CEM Select assessment. 


The test contains a number of unusual question formats that your child is unlikely to have encountered before. These include drag and drop digits and sentence auto-completes.


The assessment will be divided into a series of highly time-pressured sections. Your child doesn’t necessarily need to complete all the questions in each section to do well.
