Attendance & Punctuality

Any instances of truancy and/or unexplained absence will be recorded and may hinder our ability to provide a fully positive reference for work or higher education. Repeated instances of absence or lateness could result in you losing your place in the Sixth Form and any attendance of less than 95% will be considered unsatisfactory.

Directed Study Periods

You are expected to be in school from 8.20 until 3.05. Any periods where you are not timetabled to be in a lesson are Directed Study Periods and should be used to further your learning. You must sign in in the morning and after lunch if you are not timetabled to be in a lesson.

Use of Sixth Form Areas

The Sixth Form Library, DSR and Common Room are areas solely for Sixth Form use. Any mistreatment of these areas will result in the privilege of using them being revoked.
