Welcome to Year 6.
Who are the teachers?
The Year 6 teachers are Mrs. McCullough and Mrs. Thompson-Nash. They work hard to provide the children with exciting, meaningful and memorable learning experiences.
Year 6 can feel a little daunting with SATS tests and secondary transfer to prepare for, but Kimpton School relishes a challenge and goals are accomplished. The children are fully supported in their emotional, social and academic learning. The K’ Factor values help to focus learning attitudes and community spirit throughout the class where working as a team is paramount.
