Year 7 Starters 2020
A warm welcome to Hatcham College for all new Year 7 starters!
We are looking forward to you joining us in September. The Year 7 Induction/First Day will now be held on Monday 7th September and all other year groups will be attending school again full time from Tuesday 8th September.
We hope the video on this page provides a short introduction to Hatcham College as well as an opportunity to hear from members of staff you'll be seeing much more of from September.

Welcome from the new Head of Year 7
Welcome new Year 7s and congratulations on joining Hatcham College!
My name is Mr Sampson and I will be your Head of Year when you join us in September. I hope you are excited to enter the next chapter of your life, which will bring new challenges and experiences. It can be quite unnerving, when you think about starting secondary school. Fear not, you will have so many people looking out for you, including your tutor, your teachers, myself, as well as other Year 7s who are in the same position as you.
Here are a few pages on our website which may help with some common queries about starting school at Hatcham College:
- Uniform - what you need and where to get it
- Attending School - expectations
- Timings for the school day
- Term, Inset and Holiday dates
- Lunch menus and catering information
If you have any further questions please contact Mark Kemp (Vice-Principal) via email@example.com.
