Year 6 into 7 Transition Information

A warm welcome to our new cohort 2020, we are looking forward to you joining the Team Hatton family and we hope you are too. We have the most amazing Pastoral team here at Sir Christopher Hatton specifically focused on looking after you, as well as a dedicated Transitions Team of whom we will introduce you to over the coming weeks.  

We have launched a series of videos for you to find out more about daily life here at Hatton, meet our staff, including Year 7 form tutors and Head of Year as well as ask us questions.   These videos are uploaded to our interactive Twitter account every Monday and Friday, or accessed via the links below.  Please follow us @heartofhatton to ensure that you don't miss seeing them, and you will also be able to keep up to date with all the goings on at Hatton.  Feel free to also get involved in the many challenges that we set daily too which have included Hatton Bake Off, Beat the Teacher and many more. 

In addition to our twice weekly videos you will also have received a comprehensive Transition Pack with further information the link to view this electronically can be access below.  In the meantime we kindly ask you to complete the admissions form (if you have not already done so) which can be accessed here.
