Reporting Absence

Let us know if you are unable to attend

If you cannot get into college for any reason, such as illness or travel issues, you must let us know as soon as possible on the day:

  • Email Pauline Carroll, 6th Form Administrator:  OR Telephone 01903 778391, leave a voicemail if necessary stating name and reason for absence

  • If you are able, it is courteous to also email teachers to let them know and arrange to catch up on missed work

Planned absence

If you have a planned absence such as a medical/dental appointment, driving test, funeral or university visit, please notify us in advance, as above or pop into the 6th Form Office. 

The Department of Education states that Headteachers may not grant leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Holidays in term time will not be approved.

If you need time off for competitive events such as sport or performing arts, please compete a Request for Absence form - available from Pauline in the 6th Form Office.
