Year 6

Y6 is the final year at Windmill Hill before children make the move to Secondary School, so Y6 is about getting our pupils ready for that big transition, helping our children to reach their full potential in their end of key stage assessments (SATs) and most importantly, having the most exciting, fun and inspiring time while they are still part of our Windmill Hill family!
