Holidays during term time

Holidays should not be taken in term time as sixth form students’ programmes are demanding and the time available to prepare for examinations and assessments is relatively short.

If students require taking time off college during term time for special circumstances, parents/guardians should write a request to the College directly to the Principal.   Students taking a Level 3 programme (such as an A Level) need to attend College after the completion of their examinations in the final term as identified in the College calendar.  Lessons will occur during June and July when the second year of the course will commence.  Students who have not attended these sessions will be unable to progress onto the second year of study.
