Transfer to secondary school

Children born between 1st September 2007 and 31st August 2008 will transfer to their

Secondary Schools in September 2019.


As Northwood is a member school of Trinitas Academy Trust, it is a named feeder school for Trinity CofE Secondary School, Belvedere.  This means that children attending Northwood are given high priority when applying for a place at Trinity C of E Secondary School, Belvedere.  Below is a link to the Trinity School website where you can find out more about the school:

Selection tests for Bexley's selective secondary schools took place in September 2018.  The application period to register children ran from 1st May 2018 until 8th July 2018.  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 11th or Wednesday 12th September 2018.


The application period for parents to apply for a secondary school place opened on 1st September 2018 and ran until 31st October 2018.  Late applications may be made, but will only be considered once all of the on time applications have been finalised.

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.
