The allocation criteria are here:
1. Looked After Children
Top priority is given to children who are, or have been, in public care.
2. Guaranteed Grammar School Place
Those students identified by Bexley Council as achieving one of the highest 180 scores in the
selection tests who choose Bexley Grammar School as their preferred school.
This is given where a child, a sibling or a parent has a medical condition, which would cause
significant hardship if the child could not attend the school of parental preference. In such cases the Governors will require confirmation that it is essential, on medical grounds, for the
child to attend Bexley Grammar School.
Those students with a brother, sister or step/half brother or sister living at the same address
who are currently attending Bexley Grammar School in Years 7 – 11 at the time of
Students will be admitted on the basis of proximity to the school measured in a straight line
from the home address. The distance will be measured by the Local Authority’s computerised
measuring system from the gate of the home address to the middle gate entrance approved by
the Governors as the official entrance to the school.
6. Test Score
Where distance is identical to an accuracy of 0.001 of a mile then the scores in the selection tests will be used as a tie-breaker with priority given to the higher score.
