my daughter is now in YR7 at Chis & Sid.
We obviously looked at all 3 grammars applicable to her, and this is the one we all got the best feel for. She is happy and doing very well there.
However, she has friends at Beths, BGS and Townley too. These schools were their first choices and they seem to be equally as happy!
Nearly all the children I know/heard of found the first few weeks difficult regardless of where they went. All are now settled in and seem to be thriving.
We were fortunate in that we are fairly central to all 3 schools, so distance was not something we had to consider. We had a leaning towards a mixed school and as it happened Chis and Sid was the one our daughter really took to and the one where the pupils showing us around and the staff impressed us the most.
I don't think you would be disappointed with any of the Bexley grammar schools if the experience of my daughter and her friends at other schools is anything to go by
