Attendance and Punctuality
Full and punctual attendance of lessons is an expectation we have of all students. Students who are persistently late to class, or who are absent without good reason, will be jeopardising their place in the sixth form. Parents/carers can check their son’s/daughter’s attendance on the school’s digital platform, Frog.
If there is a legitimate reason for a student’s absence, we ask that parents provide a note to this effect and a form will need to be completed. Under no circumstances will the school authorise any holidays during term time.
Students will have on their timetables periods that are classified as free, ie non-contact periods. We expect that students will use this time for private study and that any non-contact periods will be spent in the sixth form study areas completing work where they must register with the sixth form reception.
It is compulsory for Year 12 and 13 students to be on site from 8.25am for registration. Year 12s then need to remain in school until 3.00pm, although they are allowed off site for lunch. Year 13 students are only expected to be on site for morning registration and their lessons although we strongly recommend them remaining on site in their independent study hours and studying in the SRC at these times.
* Due to COVID restrictions we have had to adapt and change some of the above. These are not permanent changes and we hope to be back to the above stipulations by September 2021.
