Post subject:  Independants Bexley area

Grateful if anyone would be able to give me some info re. Independants in the Bexley Area please. The non selective schools don't inspire us. An independant could be a plan B. And almost not brave enough to ask but an indication about fees, scolarships etc would be appreciated.

Not too sure about Bexley but other localish Indies are - Bishop Challoner (Bromley), Farringtons (Chislehurst), Colfes (Lee Green), Blackheath High (Blackheath!), Riverston (Lee Green), St Dunstans (Catford) (of course Jags, Dulwich College and Alleyns but obvioulsy a bit further out). :) :)

Dani - not aware of any independents in Bexley itself, but we did look at Colfe's a couple of years ago and I thought that was a fantastic school. I almost wish I hadn't seen it as, even though DS is at a good grammar, I still hanker after it now and again! Eltham College also has a good reputation. You're looking at about £12k per annum in fees. I don't know about bursaries but you may find more out on their websites. At Colfe's the HT said that they prefer to give a large number of small scholarships (5-15%) rather than a small number of large scholarships.

There is also Cobham Hall and Gads Hill School just down the A2 about 15 mins from Bexley

A bit further away, though probably an easier run than to Dulwich (a couple of M25 junctions), you have the schools in and around Sevenoaks. Fees 12-16K pa.

We are in a similar position. We looked at Trinity this morning, lovely school, generous bursaires but not quite right for our son.
