Once a student has enrolled on to courses, attendance and punctuality are compulsory. We understand the importance of the link between attendance and academic success. High levels of attendance and punctuality are characteristic of students who achieve and exceed their targets grades. Poor attendance and punctuality will not be tolerated; we are committed to supporting you in achieving high standards and as such, the expected level of attendance is 96% and above. Full attendance to all lessons is essential.
Anything which falls below this will be dealt with by Personal Tutors and the Head of Sixth Form, where appropriate.
In case of illness, it is important that the school is informed as soon as possible.
For ALL students, the situations below denote what can be categorised as authorised and unauthorised absences. Please remember, that attendance is the key to success!
