All children in Year 6 are given the opportunity to be School Prefects and to help with the day to day running of the school. Secondary selective tests dominate the first month of Year 6 and our children are fully prepared for these. Parents are invited to discuss secondary school options with both the Headmaster and Form teachers. Year 6 children are then involved in many fund raising activities both in school and in the wider community as well as considering their preparations for Year 6 SATS. Homework continues to be an integral part school life and a SATS Prediction Evening is held for both pupils and parents in the Spring Term. After Key Stage 2 SATS in May Year 6 participate in two weeks of Challenge and Enrichment. There then follows a week’s residential trip to Spain where children can use their Spanish knowledge and also experience a week of Spanish life, food and culture. The term culminates in a Senior School Production where Year 6 lead this great event of singing, dancing and drama. All Year 6 children transfer to a wide range of secondary schools in Bexley and adjoining boroughs.
