Taking a holiday during term time:

Excellent attendance is crucial to be successful at College. Students who have and maintain an attendance level of over 95% are more likely to achieve above their national expected grades than those who have attendence levels below this. Taking time out of college during term time for a holiday has a detrimental impact on learning and progress. The college therefore does not authorise absences during term time for the purpose of a holiday. 

For authorised absence requests, please follow the procedure below:

• If you are under 19, a request must be made in writing to the Vice Principal, Frances Mullen, by your Parent/Carer.
• If you are over 19 you must apply in writing to the Vice Principal, Frances Mullen.
