In line with national expectations, all absences require consent from the School.  In this instance, please send a letter to the Headmaster, ideally with at least a week’s notice.  It is in the interest of pupils not to ask for leave from school in term time, except in an emergency.  This arrangement applies not only to holidays, but also to routine medical and dental appointments, wherever possible.  We always appreciate cooperation in this respect.  (Please note that some secondary schools are now requesting a record of attendance as part of their admissions process for Year 7 pupils.)

Religious Observance

On a day set for religious observance by a religious body to which the pupil’s parents belong, authorisation for absence will be automatically given, however, a letter should be sent to the Headmaster to notify the school in advance.

If the exact date of the observance is unknown at the time of writing, please indicate this on your letter and confirm the pupil’s absence on the morning itself.
