Hi Parents, we live in Canary wharf (Tower Hamlets LA) and my DD is taking the selective tests in Bexley and Bromley schools ! Once the results are out, would anyone know of the pre-requisites for me to apply for the grammar schools and timelines in which you are expected to 'move inside' the LA.

Help would be appreciated.

Cheers, Nik

Depends on score and which school. Bexley if you get top 180, no distance requirement. If regular pass then it goes on oversubscription criteria and distance matters. It would be a bit of a mad scramble if they pass and you need a rapid move. For Bromley, St Olaves have no distance criteria it is score only. Newstead has a nine mile criteria and I gather you can only sit the test if inside the 9 miles. You submit the SIF to apply to sit the tests in the summer before they start at secondary. Whilst the SCAF is submitted at end of October some address changes are taken into account and there are cut offs. Check each borough's timeline on their moving onto secondary booklet eg http://www.bromley.gov.uk/downloads/fil ... 15_booklet. Bexley have a similar one but I don't have the link to hand.

I believe you have until the 8th December to change address.

Have a look at the Bexley Admissions brochure on page 13.

I hope the link works.
