Student Absence

Reporting an Absence

If students are not going to be in College, and have a justifiable reason, parents/carers should contact the College either by ringing the absence line on 01353 646416 or emailing the Attendance Officer ( by 8.00am stating the following: child’s name; form; reasons for absence including condition and the expected return date. The College will require this to be done for everyday of the absence.

It is expected that any medical appointments will, wherever possible, be arranged for outside of College hours but where this is not possible, we expect students to attend for part of the day if the appointment is local. Evidence is required to authorise absences due to medical appointments – please forward copies of any medical appointment letters, cards, emails or text messages to the Attendance Officer (
