With being the eldest pupils in the Junior Department, comes extra responsibilities and expectations as all pupils will be given the role of a Junior Prefect during the year. Year 6 pupils are expected to be positive role models for all other juniors, they help out with various tasks during the school week and will be given more responsibilities in school services, assemblies and other activities. High levels of independent thought and action are encouraged and homework increases in preparation for the transition to Senior School.

Some of the topics studied in Year 6 include Evolution and Inheritance, The Battle of Flodden, Electricity, Light, Nature at its Best and Worst and Animals Including Humans.That said, the fun doesn’t stop as the children are exposed to lively, challenging lessons which regularly extend beyond the classroom. 

Ms Bryden is the member of staff with overall responsibility for Year 6 pupils, however at this age, pupils are taught by an increasing number of subject specialists in readiness for their transition to Senior School.

'I got a great welcome as a new pupil and I settled in so well.'

'Ms Bryden makes boring things fun and we can always count on the teachers to make us laugh.'

'I feel happy and confident in all of my classes.'
