Except in cases of illness, an emergency, or special circumstances, students must not be away from College without permission from the Principal. Parents who are considering taking their child out of College during term time are asked to submit an Absence Request Form, preferably, at least 2 weeks in advance. Absence Request Forms are available from Student Services or the Main College Reception.

Please may we remind parents that when considering requesting absence from College during term time, only exceptional circumstances will be authorised at the Principal’s discretion. It is entirely the College’s decision when considering the impact on the young person’s learning and education.

Mrs Ford is the College Attendance Officer, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact her at Upper College on the above number.
