Sorry ... I don't know much about St Olaves.... you could do a search (click on 'search' button at bottom of page) Just put in Olaves as a keyword.

Here are a couple of the topics

viewtopic.php?t=10876&highlight=olaves

viewtopic.php?t=7907&highlight=olaves

Hope that helps

I wish it was a little closer, but realistically living in Bexleyheath 3 buses to get to school seem to much in my opinion.

At the open day they gave out some sample questions with the prospectus - you can also print these from their website. I think the Bonds books are the best. My daughter used these last year and successfully got into Newstead. I will be using them with my year 5 son this year to hopefully get him in St Olvaves - fingers crossed!

The Kent Section includes Bromley - might be worth trawling through there to see if there's anything?

They have been giving out that booklet for a couple of years .

The St Olaves test is structured so that you cant really prep for it and only the naturally gifted are successful.

My nephew goes there and having seen the homework and level of attainment expected I would want to send my child if they were 'borderline' they would be stuggling constantly.

My Nephew came about 15th the Year he did it and he finds it hard sometimes. So I guess I am saying please think of your child and their happiness - dont send them somewhere where they will always be struggling to keep up.

Lewis coaches run a mini-bus that picks up in Bexleyheath, the library I think, and it calls at St Olaves & Newstead.
