Year 6

Mrs McCall (Teacher)

Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of primary school. A year of exciting opportunities, rewarding experiences and challenge! This is the year to shine.

As well as reaching academic potential, there will be plenty of opportunities for pupils to participate in key roles and responsibilities within the school that will equip them for their transition to secondary school.

In Year 6 pupils will be expected to work hard but in return, they are rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take them onto their next adventure.
