Transfer to secondary school
Children born between 1st September 2010 and 31st August 2011 will transfer to their Secondary Schools in September 2022.
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 take place each year in September. Children will only sit the tests if their parent opts in. The application period to register children for the September 2022 selection tests runs from 3rd May 2022 until 1st July 2022. Late applications are not accepted.
If you register your child to take the test they will be invited to attend a local test centre to sit the test during the week of 12th September 2022. Northwood does not act as a test centre for the tests.
The application period for parents to apply for a secondary school place will open on 1st September 2022 and run until 31st October 2022. Late applications may be made, but will only be considered once all of the on time applications have been finalised. We cannot stress enough how important it is to apply on time or your child may not secure a place at the school of their choice.
Families who live in the borough of Bexley should apply online using the Bexley Council website: www.bexley.gov.uk/admissions
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 in March 2023.
