Key Stage 2 – Year 6 (Lower 1/Standard 5)

Year 6 at Key Stage 2 is the British equivalent to the local Standard 5 and caters for students normally operating at age 11, although in some cases students may be slightly older or younger.

During this final year of their elementary education students will study the compulsory subjects, Mathematics, English and Science. They will also be taught Information and Communications Technology (ICT), History, Geography, Music, Art, Physical Education (PE), Spanish and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE).

At the end of year 6, students are given the SAT’s (Standard Assessment Tasks) in order to determine a standardized grade level for each student, based on the British National Curriculum. In addition, the Year 6 programme transitions students from Primary to Secondary Levels, recognising the value of both academic progress and maturity readiness.
