Choosing a Secondary School for your Child


How will I know which school to choose and how to apply for a secondary school for my child?

As your child nears the end of Year 5 and after having received information from Kent and Bexley Education Departments, we will advise you on how to register your child to sit the Kent and Bexley selection tests (should you want your child to take one, or both of the tests).

Towards the end of Year 5, we will also send you your child's end of year Record of Achievement (report) and you will be invited to attend a Parent/Child/Teacher consultation meeting with your child's Year 5 teacher. Information from these will help you to consider the type of secondary school which may be best suited to meet your child's needs.

We will hold an information meeting for all parents of children who have just entered Year 6. At this meeting we will give you information about the Procedure for Entrance to Secondary Education (PESE) in Kent and information about the different secondary schools in Dartford and Bexley.
