Bucks 11+ decision expected in two weeks

Buckinghamshire education officials are considering delaying the county’s 11-plus exams in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

A formal decision on what to do with the 11-plus will be made within the next two weeks, Bucks Free Press reports.

Simon James, director of education at the authority, responded to questions about the exams at a meeting of children’s services bosses yesterday.

He said: “We’ve been in close communication with the group of academy schools and headteachers and within the next two weeks they will have come to a position in terms of the 11-plus examination.

“I can share that one of the options they are considering is a delay in the examination to allow it still to take place within a reasonable period of time before Christmas.”
