Throughout Bromley, there are some amazing schools for children to attend - some of which are given the best rating of outstanding by Ofsted.

On April 15, 2024, parents across the UK found out which primary school their child will go to in September this year.

Parents of those heading to secondary schools found out on March 1, 2024.

One of the main ways schools are rated is through Ofsted inspections, with outstanding schools being inspected every four years.

Schools judged as inadequate or requiring improvement are typically inspected within two and a half years.

So, these ratings can change fairly regularly.
