Townley Grammar School Late Transfer (In-Year 12 Plus & 13 Plus) Entry Admissions Information


These tests will be taken at Townley Grammar School or some other grammar school in Bexley. Dates for the assessment will be communicated by the school.


In order for your child to be considered for the assessments, you should complete and submit one of the following forms:


  • The Grammar In Year Application Form;
  • Bexley In Year Application Form.


If your child is not currently attending a Bexley school, the Bexley In Year Application Form will give her access to all of the schools in Bexley rather than just the selective schools. 


In the case of oversubscription, priority will be given to:


  • Looked after children or previously looked after children.
  • Students identified by the LA as achieving one of the highest scores in the selection tests.
  • Pupils whose siblings are already attending the school.
  • Children who live closest to the school.


Distance will be measured in a straight line from the applicant’s home address to the Townley Grammar School entrance.
