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.
