Year 6 Production
In their last year with us, the pupils thoroughly enjoy taking part in the school production. This is a polished affair using the theatre at Framlingham College and professional microphones for the lead roles. It is usually a musical, and often the pupils get involved right at the start of planning, including making costumes and props.

Year 6 Camp and London Trip
In their final half-term, Year 6 pupils spend a week at Whitwell in Norfolk at a County Approved Campsite. Over the years, we’ve found this provides the children with a memorable and educational experience that stands them in good stead for moving on to Secondary School. We also arrange for a packed day out in London where we always try to book a tour of the Houses of Parliament.

Moving to High School
We have well-established links with Thomas Mills High School (TMHS) in Framlingham. This includes TMHS staff visiting us and working in Year 6 classes; TMHS staff attending “In-service Training” sessions with our own staff and discussing curriculum and pastoral issues; Year 6 children visiting TMHS to familiarise themselves with the buildings and to meet form tutors.
To forge links with the children at other primary schools feeding into TMHS, we work with them to arrange joint activities for children from the upper end of Key Stage 2. These sessions give the children an opportunity to meet and start forging new friendships.
We encourage all parents/carers to attend the introductory meetings organised by Thomas Mills High School at the time of transfer.
