Student Absence

It is important we have an accurate record of student absence. If your son is absent from school it is important that you notify Mr Fergus McIntosh, the Attendance Office at the school.  He can be contacted by telephoning 01892 578114 (direct dial number) or via email at

Please include your son's name, tutor group and a brief reason for the absence.

We would also appreciate it if you could give an indication of the length of absence expected, especially if an absence continues into the following week. It is vital to your child's education to return to school as soon as possible.



Students who feel unwell during school hours must not contact parents/carers to collect them without first being seen and assessed by a qualified first aider.
