Year 5 – 6

In KS2, we aim to develop the skills learned previously and create opportunities for the children to become increasingly more independent and confident learners, supported through academic, sporting and co-curricular activities.

Our KS2 years are split into Lower and Upper.

Year 5 & 6: KS2 – Upper

*Please note: Due to the number of applications we are receiving, our Year 5 class for this academic year is full. Act quickly and get your applications in now for the 2020/2021 academic year by filling out our application form.

Children enter Year 5 & 6 with a solid grounding in all the main subject areas and continue to study all subjects of the National Curriculum delivered in the main by their class teacher:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • Humanities (History & Geography)
  • Art, Design and Technology
  • ICT
  • Physical Education & Swimming
  • Music, Dance
  • Spanish
  • Religious Education & PSHE

Exceptions to these subjects are taught by specialist subject teachers enabling children to develop in preparation for their transition to Senior School at the end of Key Stage 2:

  • Music
  • Sport
  • Computing
  • Spanish

Years 5 and 6 are able to make full use of the superb, specialist subject facilities in the Senior School including the science labs, theatre and music department in addition to the Infant & Junior School vegetable & environmental gardens which facilitate hands-on learning in Science and other curriculum areas.

Our Upper KS2 children take part in a number of off-site trips each year and this culminates in week long residential trips to reinforce their Learning Values & Skills in the summer term. They also take part in charity fundraising activities and sponsored events.

As our Year 5 children transition into Year 6, they can take on positions of responsibility in the Infant & Junior School such as Head of School or Head of House. As they mature and become more confident, take more responsibility for themselves, their learning and personal organisation are supported by staff to prepare for the transition from the Infant & Junior School into the Senior School, so that they have a positive experience that ensures they feel ready, prepared and are looking forward to the move.


We are currently accepting applications for all year groups for Autumn 2021.
