Year 5 - Bexley Selection Test



Dates have been released for the Bexley Selection Test for current Year 5 pupils. Children will sit two test papers on the same morning or afternoon of either Tuesday 11th September or Wednesday 12th September. The test centres will be one of the four grammar schools in Bexley and children from each school will be invited to the same test session wherever possible. However, only boys will be invited to Beths Grammar School and only girls to Townley Grammar School.


The two test papers will each contain a mixture of questions on verbal ability and comprehension, mathematical problem solving and non-verbal reasoning. The tests will be divided into timed sections of questions, and a CD soundtrack will be played with instructions and timings.


Parents must register their child online in order to sit the test. Registration opens on the 1st May, and the link to the registration form and an information sheet, can be found on the Bexley selection test webpage from this date. The closing date for registration is the 8th July 2018. Late registration will not be accepted.


Parents who register their child will receive a letter by the 1st September informing them of the date, time and location of their test session. Results will be sent by email and should be received by parents on the

4th October.


Please be aware that the registration process for the Kent test is completely separate from the Bexley test and parents should contact Kent County Council for more information.
