The New Bexleyheath School opened to pupils in September 2005. Set in over 40 acres of grounds, the school boasts a range of the most up to date teaching facilities. Each of the new classrooms has an interactive whiteboard with 600+ computers in use throughout the school.

There are two cafeterias, two libraries, two halls and two gymnasia. The sporting facilities also include a Sports Hall, multi-gym, rugby and football pitches and eleven all-weather pitches. There are specialist Performing Arts areas including a dance studio.

The school is consistently over-subscribed and has a Sixth Form of 200+ students. The school takes pupils from across the Borough of Bexley who frequently use the excellent public transport services which terminate outside the school gates.

The school was officially opened by the Right Honourable Richard Caborn M.P., Minister for Sport, on 5 October 2006.


Careers education is an integral part of the preparation of pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. Careers Education Guidance starts in Year 7 and continues throughout Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and the Sixth Form.

The aim of Careers Education Guidance is to encourage:

• Self-development
• Career exploration
• Career management.

Students are given opportunities to:

• Increase self-awareness
• Research education, training and career options
• Develop skills of decision making
• Manage change to new roles and situations.

"Access to impartial careers advice is good and the personal adviser is used well to support career choices". Ofsted 2003

During Year 11 all students have the opportunity to see the Careers Adviser for an individual guidance interview. Parents are invited to attend these interviews. A Personal Development Plan is prepared as a result of the meeting. A priority system operates for those students with the greatest perceived need, but students or parents can book an interview by contacting the Careers Department.

Information evenings for students and parents are also organised at the most appropriate times through the year to assist choice, transition and change.

    Thomas Bensted, after being spotted as having potential and being recruited to run with the Track Speed team, run by National Sprint Coach John Powell, has been invited to go on a pre-season training camp to America where he will get the opportunity to train alongside and under the guidance of some of the leading coaches in the world. His current personal best time for the 100m is 11.49 sec and in one European competition he beat the American no 1 in his age group.

    Tom competed at the National Championships in July winning the 400 metres in 51 seconds.


     Young Enterprise Company Programme 2006/7

    A group of 16 6 th form students made up of the A Level and Applied Business students have joined together to start-up and run their own company.  The company name is called Magico! which is Italian for ‘Charming’.

    Magico! produce and sell bags to the general public made from recycled materials.  They have been trading for about 4 weeks and have their first major pitch at the PFA Ladies Night.

    Eventually in the new year Magico! will attend a trade fair which is held in the Bexleyheath Broadway precinct.  It is here where all of the schools in the borough will show off their company and products which go on sale to the general public.

    Magico! have recently had the opportunity to attend a Speed Networking Conference on the London Eye where they had the chance to talk to other achievers that are participating in the YE Company Programme from all over London.

    Finally, Magico! will attend a presentation evening which is held at the Marriott Hotel at the end of March where they will present their company to a panel of judges and all of the other schools in the borough.  There are seven trophies to be won at this evening and the overall winner gets the opportunity to go into the next round which is the London finals.

    As a result of participating in the YE Company programme, the students achieve 2 qualifications equivalent to two GCSE’s (A-C) grade and gain invaluable experience of running a real life business.

    Magico! Update

    Congratulations to Year 12 Young Enterprise Company Magico! for winning the Best Environmentally Friendly Company Award at Monday night’s presentation evening held at the Marriott hotel.

    Led by managing director Leo Tsang, and in front of five other schools in the borough, they gave an excellent presentation of their business interests.  They were up against eight other companies.  It was a highly competitive evening with all companies setting very professional standards.  It has been a very successful year for the achievers whose hard work and determination finally paid off.  Our thanks go to Graham Willett our voluntary Business Adviser for guiding the achievers through their experience and everyone that has supported the group since September.  A lot of time and effort goes into running this programme and to come away with an award is a great achievement.  Well done again to the achievers; we look forward to running the programme again next year.

    Enterprise in the Classroom

    All Year 10 students were introduced to the concept of Enterprise education by a drama presentation and workshop presented by CragRats Theatre Company.

    Following on from this, and to recognise National Enterprise Week, 120 Year 10 students took part in a ‘Pyramid Game’ during their Maths lessons. The game incorporated both Maths solutions and enterprise skills to solve a problem.
