Sixth Form Leave of Absence

  • Sixth Form Students with non-medical requests for absence should complete an online form (see link below) and submit it at least four working days before the date(s) of absence. They should also inform their parents or carers that they have submitted the request.
  • Students are permitted five days non-medical absence during Year 12 and 13. Their attendance must be above 95%.
  • Extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis by the Director of Sixth Form and Head of Year


  • Students with medical appointments should ask their parents or carers to contact the school beforehand via SchoolComms in the same way they send messages regarding illness. Please can advance notice be given for appointments when possible.
  • In both cases it is the responsibility of students to contact teachers beforehand to inform them of their absence and find out what work they need to complete.
