Absence Line Contact Number


There may be times when your child has to miss school. If your child is ill, contact the school on each day of your child's illness stating their name, tutor group and full details of their absence. Stating a child is "sick, unwell or poorly" is not accepted as we need the full reason to provide to the local authority. You will be contacted by the Attendance Office if your child is absent from school without notice.

To advise your child will be absent from school or late, please contact us by 8.30am in one of the following ways:

  • by telephone - 01702 509000 (option 1)
  • for Post 16 students please dial for extension 305
