Bexley

Bexley LEA: Hill View, Hill View Drive, Welling, Kent DA16 3RY;  Tel:  020 8303 7777

Profile:  Bexley has often been portrayed as an oasis to which commuters retreat after the daily City grind.  Extensive residential development means that much of the borough does have a surfeit of suburban semis, and many of its residents do make the daily trip to the City, but Bexley is more than a middle-class housing estate.  In the north of the borough lies Thamesmead, a GLC development.  It is as near Bexley comes to inner-city, but it has attractive canalised properties alongside the tower blocks.  It has received several million pounds in government grants for regeneration, targeted at schemes to revitalize the community and bring in new businesses.

Policy:  Bexley’s selective standard is high and competition for places is demanding.  Before you enter your child for the selection tests you should talk to your child’s primary school and ask for advice on whether your child’s ability and attainment are likely to enable them to do well.  Many children can find the experience of taking these tests quite daunting.
