Year 7 Start of Term 2018

Dear Parent/Carer,

 Welcome to Thomas Bennett Community College.

 The Year 7 Team looks forward to welcoming your child on Thursday 6th September. 

 The school day will begin at 8:30 and finish at 15:00. 

 Please ensure that your child arrives in full school uniform, details of which can be found on our website (Information --> Student Uniform).

During the morning your child will spend time with their tutors, have a tour of the school and set up their fingerprint so that they are able to access the canteen. 

During the first week, lunch time for Year 7 students will start 10 minutes earlier, this will allow your child to purchase their meals before the rest of the school. 

After lunch the whole school will have their first timetabled lesson. 

Please ensure that your child brings the following with them:  

School bag

Black/ blue pen

Green pen




PE Kit 

Packed lunch/ cash for the canteen 

For general queries regarding the start of term, please contact Miss Jade Farmer, Head of Year 7.

Best wishes,

The Year 7 Team
