Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to Year 6. Year 6 is a hugely exciting year in which the girls rise to the top of the Prep School and are the class in which all year groups look up to. The girls take on leadership roles such as Head Girl, Deputy Head Girls, Sports Prefects, House Prefects and Digital Leaders. We believe that these roles play a huge part in building the girls’ confidence and prepare them for leadership roles in the future.

Year 6 Exhibition
After the entrance exam, Year 6 begin preparing for their Exhibition. This is an extended independent inquiry project, allowing the girls to bring together and apply the skills that they have learned throughout the Prep School by researching and presenting a project on a topic that they choose. The Exhibition presentation evening to other students and family members takes place at the end of June, and it is always wonderful to see the fantastic independent learning that has taken place.
