Lessons in Form 6 (Year 5) continue to follow the specialist model started in Form 4 and the focus moves to preparation for the Kent 11+ tests which take place in the September of the following year. Pupils are also prepared for entrance examinations for independent schools.
Children are encouraged to become increasingly independent and take on responsibilities including ringing the school bell. In class support continues and children often attend small groups in the lunch hour to help with specific academic problems. Humanities is added to the homework assignments.
