Townley Grammar is generally considered the 'best' academically, although it's often quite tricky to get in. Bexley Grammar only does the IB, they don't teach A levels anymore, so unless you want to go through that hell, there's no point going there. My brother is going to Beths Grammar in September (if he gets the required GCSE results, which I think he will), and they seem pretty good.
Other than the grammars, I'm not too sure what else there is. I've heard Blackfen is alright, although they don't get as high results as the grammars. There's also Christ the King college in Sidcup, which seems fine, and their results are ok I think. I mean, I ended up going to sixth form in Sevenoaks anyway, so I never actually considered any of the Bexley sixth forms, this is purely based on my brother's and some of my friends' experiences and from my general knowledge of the schools in Bexley.

Nothing, if that's what you want to do. It's just that they only teach the IB and not A levels, which personally I would hate, since you have to study like 8+ subjects (including maths, English and science) instead of just 3.
