Post subject:  No spare places this year but 12 plus offers fresh hope

No reserve places were offered at any of the Bexley grammar schools this September for children who missed passing the 11 plus by a very narrow margin. There are usually a few places available for pupils who missed by one mark or even half a mark. But this year none were available, I was told by a source at Bexley. Possibly places were heavily oversubscribed as many parents who decide in the end to send their children to private school (thereby deciding not to take up their grammar place) decided not to go down the private school route because of jobs uncertainty as a result of the pandemic. There is a 12 plus this Summer term next year for a 'second attempt'. Hope that helps.
