Year 6 Experience

Year 6 at Bishop Gilpin is a very special year. Children work hard towards their school entrance exams and SATs, but they also enjoy a new sense of responsibility in the school and take part in some great events.

Highlights include:

  • Isle of Wight adventure holiday experience (7 days)
  • Year 6 production
  • Leavers' disco, yearbook and hoodies
  • Leavers' service at St Mary's-Head of house – organised inter=house competitiions
  • Entrepreneurial project: market research, designing, producing, marketing, selling, review of economic and team performance
  • Public speaking training
  • Experience of the legal system including mock trials with trainee lawyers (and in 2018 the Solicitor General)

 

"Year 6 was the best year at BG – I was in the school play and made good friends. I am really looking forward to my next school, but I am going to miss Bishop Gilpin so much."
