Support For Parents


Holidays and Attendance

Exemplary attendance is important to us. If students are not here, they are not learning. 

We have an expectation of 95% attendance for all our students. Without a valid reason, students whose subject attendance in Year 13 falls below 92% must pay for their examinations. Circumstances beyond a student’s control will, as always, be taken into consideration when final decisions are made. We are proud of our rigorous attendance approach and welcome regular and thorough communication with our parents.

If students are unable to attend school due to illness or other unavoidable circumstances, they must telephone 01709 542147 or e-mail as soon as possible.

Holidays should not be taken during term time. 

If students wish to take a holiday during term time, they must submit a holiday request form, available from the sixth form office.

Parents Destination Guides

Parents and carers play a vital role in the success of students in sixth form and beyond. Our website offers university, apprenticeship, and employment guidance for both students and parents.
