Can you give links to the latest tables for London/Greater London please? I am interested where exactly Bromley/Bexley schools are standing in the lists as I am looking to relocate and this will be my main criteria. Thanks.

I'm not sure it's wise to use them as your main criteria. It's a very blunt tool.

If league table ranking is your main criteria, then how about St. Pauls, Westminster, City of London etc. Eton if looking outside London. Among State Schools, QE Barnet, Wilson's, Tiffins rank quite high.

Seriously? Wow. Agree with scary - not the best way to choose where you want to live.

search google for ft rankings, telegraph and also bbc. But this is a vague tool if you want to relocate.

To answer your question....top of my head, the top grammar schools (also called super-selectives) that show up in top 100 incl private are:
QE
Olave's
DGS
Judd
Wilson
Sutton
Tiffin
.

Other Bexley schools (Bexley/Beth/Townley/Sidcup) are fairly low ranked 500ish as per FT.

Outcomes and league table position are directly linked to intake; the more selective school tend to get better results!

However it is also more difficult to gain entry to such schools.

Sorry, I am forced to relocate as the primary school where DS and DD are going is awful. There are no excellent schools near where I live, so at least for secondary I would like to be in the catchment. If this is what you are asking. In general yes, this is the main criteria, next one is travel options and house prices. Of course, I cannot afford to to live in City of London, otherwise would not ask?

Thank you for all who answered my questions.

Thank you for that. All I am asking is if Bexley/Bromley/Sidcups are giving good education and is it worth to relocate more close to them or just completely go in different area. I have heard only positives (do not know many parents where I live) from different sources and after the bag primary would like to prepare DS for a grammar. I am aware that the tables are not very clear and that is the reason why I seek feedback. Know that north Ln schools are very high ranked, which means that I have to move completely far from Bromley.
Where I am coming from there are not 'bag' schools and areas, only really good and then private prestige ones.

What is the need to move if your area has really good schools?

Don't think the OP is talking about their current location - like everywhere in Greater London (or the UK generally), Bromley is pretty diverse...
