Maintaining an excellent attendance and punctuality record is crucial for academic success and future applications for university or work placements and is a priority for all our Sixth Form students. All students are required to be on site for
registration at 8.45am until the end of the Sixth Form day at 4pm. During Independent Study periods students are expected to undertake their work in either Café TwentyEleven or the Study Centre. We expect our students to be self-
managers when it comes to their own learning and use this time wisely. Where students would benefit from a more structured timetable with their Self Study time, Sixth Form Tutors can assist them with their study plan.

As excellent attendance is key to academic success we ask that students avoid making appointments during the Sixth Form day. If a student needs to request an absence for any reason we ask that an absence request form (available from
the Sixth Form website and reception) is completed and signed by a parent/carer. This should be given to both their Sixth Form Tutor and then the Head of Sixth Form for approval. If a student is going to be absent and it is not pre-arranged i.e. illness, we ask that their parent/carer contacts the Sixth Form Reception before 8:00a.m. to report the absence. We ask that if the absence will be more than one day that you contact us on each morning to inform us.
