Great Missenden School is ranked 4th out of all 217 Bucks Primary Schools by the DFE for overall attainment (Average Point Scores) in reading, writing and maths at KS2.
These are the July 2013 results achieved by our 60 Year 6 pupils. The 3 schools ranked ahead of Great Missenden were smaller, with cohorts of 32, 26 and 35 children in Year 6.
Great Missenden is also ranked 12th out of 217 schools in the county for "Value Added" - which means the exceptional progress made by the children between KS1 and KS2.
Well done school!!
For a whole day, Year 6 taught the rest of the school. The children were in charge of preparing and delivering educational lessons, as well as marking the work produced.
The Year 6 teachers were blown away by the outstanding teaching the Year 6s delivered to the school. It was a joy to see them transform into mini adults in front of our eyes, and everyone couldn't be more impressed by how well they rose to the considerable challenge.
Year 6 should be very proud of their huge achievement. They're a real credit to the school.

The children had a great time experimenting with a variety of fun scientific experiments. Such as ever changing gloop, shooting different kind of rockets, and an exploding volcano. We also learnt about day and night with shadow and investigated what happens when shaving foam, oil and coloured water is frozen.
We ended the fun afternoon with a big explosion in the playground by combining coke and mentos.
Thank you to all the parents who offered to help, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Looking forward to the next one! :o)

Last week, Year 6 took part in a Great Missenden School tradition- the Mini Enterprise Week.
The year group was divided into teams, with each team spending a day on one of the four activities; making crackers, wreaths, felt softies or cooking. The week culminated in a market where the teams could sell their products to the school and parents.
With every team raising roughly £100 each and a grand total of over £1000, the Year 6 Mini Enterprise Week could not have been more successful!
