Our Year 6 pupils have the luxury of small teaching groups where the pupils enjoy individual tailored instruction. Oak pupils are the eldest in the school aged 10 and 11 years.
During this final year at Airthrie we actively prepare these students for their future move to senior education. Part of this preparation is to familiarise pupils with the prospect of having different teachers for each curriculum subject, so they are frequently taught in smaller groups by additional teachers who have a subject specialism, as well as by their Class Teachers.
In the early part of the academic year there is appropriate focus on examination technique and practice until all entrance tests are completed. Pupils continue to be encouraged to participate in extra curricular activities as well as being given school responsibilities and monitor duties. These maturing pupils positively look forward to taking the leading roles in both the Carol Service (held at Christ Church) and the Summer Concert (performed at The Parabola Arts' Centre).
The climax of this final year is, without doubt, the four day off-site activity break held at Osmington Bay in Dorset during the Summer Term - or for many, the week-long biennial language visit to France.
Oak pupils conclude their days at Airthrie with a Leavers' BBQ and a highly competitive Staff v Pupils Rounders match.
