School Description

Bexley Grammar School is a larger than average selective school for boys and girls aged 11-18. It is a specialist languages college and has just successfully applied to add science and maths as a second specialism. The school is very popular and heavily over-subscribed. Some of the children come from homes that are socially and economically advantaged, but students come from a wide range of social backgrounds. The percentage of students entitled to free school meals is lower than the national average but is above the grammar school average. Around a quarter of the students come from minority ethnic backgrounds - this is higher than average and also higher than in other local schools. The percentage of students with learning difficulties and disabilities is much lower than average. The school has recently been designated a High Performing Specialist School and also has Leading Edge status. It has the International Award, Healthy Schools status, Investors in People and Sportsmark and Artsmark Gold.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
