Description of the school – Bexley Grammar School

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.
