Transfer to secondary school

Children born between 1st September 2008 and 31st August 2009 will transfer to their

Secondary Schools in September 2020.


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 2019.  The application period to register children for the selection tests ran from 7th May 2019 until 7th July 2019.  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 10th or Wednesday 11th September 2019.


The application period for parents to apply for a secondary school place opened on 1st September 2019 and will run until 31st October 2019.  Late applications may be made, but will only be considered once all of the on time applications have been finalised.  We would urge parents to apply on time or they 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 


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 2020.
