Year 6

Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of primary school. A year of exciting challenges and lots of different learning opportunities. This is the year our pupils have the chance to really shine.

Year 6 pupils have many responsibilities, from being House Captains and Vice Captains, to being Playground Leaders through both Key Stage 1 and 2, setting a good example to our younger pupils.

In Year 6 you will be expected to work hard particularly in the run up to our SATs assessments but in return, you will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and a growing confidence that will take you onto your next adventure.

We look forward to welcoming you to our class.
