If your child is currently in Year 5 and you are planning to apply for a Year 7 place at a Bexley or Kent grammar school, you will need to register your child for the selection tests for these areas. Late registrations will not be accepted. The information attached below will provide you with further details on the Testing process and how to apply for a Secondary School place.
The 2022 Bexley Selection Test will be held in school during the week commencing 12 September (the exact date will be advised in due course). Bexley Council have produced a document to help parents with any queries. Even though your child attends a Bexley school, you still need to register them for the Test in advance if you would like them to sit it. Registration will open on 3 May 2022 and will close at midnight on 1 July 2022. If you fail to register before the deadline of 1 July 2022, your child will be unable to sit the test. Late applications are not possible and will not be accepted. The results of the test will be emailed to parents by 7 October, with the closing date for secondary school applications 31 October. Secondary School offers will be made on 1 March 2023.
The date of the Kent Test is Saturday 10 September and the Test will be held off site. Registration will be open from 1 June until midnight 1 July 2022. Late registrations are not accepted. The results of the test will be emailed to parents on 18 October, with the closing date for secondary school applications 31 October.
