Daniel Roycroft, Headteacher
HLC Secondary


Headteacher Welcome

My name is Mr Roycroft and I am the Headteacher of your new school, Hadley Learning Community - Secondary.

Over the last 18 months, the world around us has changed so much and we have all been forced to live our lives very differently. I am sure that you have enjoyed being back in school with your friends and teachers and I hope that you are looking forward to moving up to HLC Secondary in September. We are very much looking forward to meeting you!

At this time of the year, we would normally be coming to visit you in your primary school and holding parent meetings to tell you what life at Hadley Learning Community is like. Due to the coronavirus we can’t do that, so I am writing to you to say please don’t worry about September, everything will be fine and we are finding out lots about you already through the video meetings that we are having with all of your Year 6 teachers.

We haven’t been able to invite you into school this term to get to know the building and your new teachers, but don’t worry! We have been working hard to put together a lot of information on this site to introduce you to the school, meet the year 7 tutors and answer any questions you may have.

In the coming weeks, you will receive information that will tell you more about your new school. You will also be receiving a ‘Best of Me’ workbook to complete at home. This is your opportunity to show us the work you can do and what you know about the different subjects that you will study in Secondary School. When you return to school in September, we would like you to bring in this workbook and your new teachers will then be able to see what you have worked on during the summer.

All you need to know for now is that we are looking forward to having you as one of our pupils and we are desperate to meet you and make sure you love life at your new school.

Should you have any concerns over the coming days and weeks please contact our Transition Coordinator:  magda.farley@lct.education

This section of our website is for you to gain an understanding of your new year 7 life at HLC. You will be able to virtually meet the staff that will be working with you and even have the opportunity to impress us with some project work before you start!

I can’t wait to meet you all.

Mr. D Roycroft
Secondary Headteacher
