Students studying in {below 6th grade} are not allowed to go on this trip.

Here in and below both are working as a preposition.

Is the sentence natural?

What are the other ways to say this?

Thanks in advance.

You can either say:

Students studying in 5th grade or below are not allowed to go on this trip.

or

Students studying below 6th grade are not allowed to go on this trip.

In the first case, below acts as an adverb modifying 5th. In the second case, below acts as preposition, and in is not needed in the phrase.
