As the oldest pupils in the school, Year 6 pupils are offered a range of responsibilities. This includes leading the School Council, becoming Sports’ Council members, Peer Mentors and Prefects. They respond well to the challenges and additional opportunities given to them, which prepare them for their transition to secondary school.
Year 6 is the final year of Key Stage 2. It is a very important year, because pupils sit their SATs (Standard Attainment Tests) in May, which are set by the Government to assess each pupil’s progress. We aim for children to achieve at least level 4 and to have made two whole National Curriculum levels’ progress from their Key Stage 1 assessment. Besides this important focus, we also offer pupils a wide and balanced curriculum, in addition to the core subjects of Maths, English and Science.

A Specialist Arts College
Students have access to the suite of qualifications included in the English Baccalaureate from Year 7 alongside PE, arts and technology subjects. The curriculum at our school builds skills, knowledge and understanding each year in order to fulfill the school motto ‘Discovering the potential in all’. The personal skills which support academic excellence; resilience, reflectiveness, resourcefulness as well as collaboration and empathy are both taught and reinforced through all subjects, these areas are fundamental to developing successful learners. It is our aim to enable our students to become assessment capable learners who have the tools to become successful and are able to follow any career pathway they choose.
