In-Year Admissions Process - to be completed for children currently in years 7 and above.
A ‘casual’ or ‘in year’ admission is when a student is admitted to the school, outside of the normal secondary transfer period (when a student enters the school from Year 6 into Year 7).
For a child to be considered for a place at Bexley Grammar School, they must have been deemed selective in the Bexley Selection Tests. Procedures for making a secondary transfer have recently changed and all parents of students wishing to apply for a place, at Bexley Grammar School, whether they live in Bexley or in a neighbouring local authority, must complete a ‘Bexley In Year Application Form’ which is available on Bexley Council's website here: Applying for school in-year, London Borough of Bexley.
A link to an example In Year test has also been provided below.

We are currently full and have waiting lists for each year group. If your child has previously been deemed selective and a place is not currently available, you can ask for them to be placed on the waiting list for their year group. If a place becomes available, we will contact the person at the top of the list to offer them a place. Please note, you will still need to complete an application form through the Borough of Bexley's website for your child to be added to the waiting list.
