The Basics

The Bexley Secondary Selection Test is the standard 11 Plus Grammar School entrance exam for the four selective schools in the Borough of Bexley.

The papers are prepared by CEM and are fairly standard in their structuring, except for the fact that (reasonably unusually) the second paper includes both multiple choice and open answer maths questions. By far the majority of the questions remain multiple choice, but it is important when preparing for the mathematical side of the exam, to practise open answer questions as well.


The exam is split into two papers, both of which are sat on the same day and last roughly an hour (probably a little less).

Paper 1 includes English and Verbal Reasoning, while Paper 2 measures Maths and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Further details on each paper can be found below.

The schools covered by the Bexley Test are as follows:

  • Beths Grammar School

  • Bexley Grammar School

  • Chislehurst & Sidcup Grammar School

  • Townley Grammar School
