Welcome to Upper School.

Upper School consists of Year five and Year six. This is the phase where we begin getting the children ready for secondary school. Making sure they have the independence, resilience and attitudes towards learning they will need to carry on with their educational journey.

As the phase leaders, we welcome you and your child to the phase. As the children get older, we appreciate it can be difficult for some parents to find the time to come into school around their work but we would greatly appreciate as much parental involvement as possible so do not hesitate to keep in touch.  We will also be running various parent workshops across the year. We hope to see you all there.
