Secondary School Admissions

Children born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 will transfer to secondary school in September 2024. The application period will open on Friday 1 September 2023 and the closing date is Tuesday 31 October 2023.

Secondary School Applications are made online to the Bexley Borough Admissions Team - https://www.bexley.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/secondary-schools/starting-secondary-school

All secondary schools have their own websites which we encourage you to explore to find out as much as you can, but visiting during an open day or evening is essential for you to find out just what the school is really like and the opportunities offered to its pupils. Contact details for each school can be at Secondary schools in Bexley.
