Selection tests

Selection test in September 2014 for children transferring to secondary school in September 2015

Children deemed selective in the selection test held in September 2014 can be considered for a place at one of the four grammar schools in Bexley.

The test results are being sent to parents today, Wednesday 8 October 2014. We previously told parents that you would need to log in to your Bexley Self Service account to view your child's result, and that separate letters would not be sent. Because of the number of parents who had difficulty logging in to their Self Service accounts to view the test centre details, we have sent letters to all parents as well as publishing the results online.

Please do not try and log in to your self service account until you receive an email advising you to do so. The emails are being sent out over the course of today, and you cannot view your child's result before you receive the email.

We have posted letters to all parents by first class post, and you should receive the letter on 8 October. The letter will tell you whether your child is selective or not, and if he or she is one of the top 180 scorers. You will be given the three individual standardised scores for verbal, non verbal and numerical questions, and the total standardised score that decides whether your child is selective or not.

Your child's school will also have the results.

If you have not received your result letter by midday on Thursday 9 October, you can request a copy by phoning the School Admissions Team on 020 8303 7777.

Selection tests for children already at secondary school

Children can be admitted to grammar schools in Bexley after the start of Year 7 if vacancies arise because, for example, other children leave the school. If you would like to apply for a place at a grammar school in Bexley for your child, you should apply directly to the school.

The tests are not the same as those taken by children in the last year of primary school.

If your child is deemed selective but a place is not available at your preferred school, you will be able to request that he or she is placed on the waiting list for a place. Being deemed selective does not guarantee that a place will be offered.

For further information regarding the in year selection tests, please view the grammar school websites.
