Transfer to secondary school

Children born between 1st September 2006 and 31st August 2007 will transfer to their Secondary Schools in September 2018.


Selection tests for Bexley's selective secondary schools will take place in September 2017.  Children will only be able to sit the test if their parents opt in.  The application period to register children to sit the test ran from 2nd May 2017 until 9th July 2017.  Late applications are not permitted.


Northwood no longer acts as a test centre for the selection test.  If you registered your child to take the test they will be invited to attend a local test centre to sit the test on either Tuesday 12th or Wednesday 13th September 2017.


The application period for parents to apply for a secondary school place will open on 1st September 2017 and run until 31st October 2017.  Late applications may be made, but will only be considered once all of the on time applications have been finalised.  


Families who live in the borough of Bexley should apply online using the Bexley Council website: www.bexley.gov.uk 


If you are unable to apply online you can request a paper form from Bexley Council.


Families not living in Bexley should apply to their home local authority.


Emails and letters notifying parents of the school allocated to their child will be sent by your local authority on 1st March 2018.
