Grammar schools 

Lewisham does not have any grammar schools.  If you are looking at a grammar school for your child they need to be registered to take the test usually before the end of June while they are in  Year 5.

See here for details about the Bexley Grammar tests for schools such as Beths

See here for details of the Kent test for schools such as Dartford Grammar.

Open events

We recommend that you go and see as many secondary schools as you can and if possible, visit while the schools are open and the children are learning in them.
