Sixth Form Privileges
Sixth Formers have a number of privileges not enjoyed by other students. It is essential that students do not abuse these privileges as this may lead to them being withdrawn. Therefore these points should be borne in mind:

You may go out at lunchtime but must return with plenty of time for your afternoon lessons.
You must not leave the premises at break or in your free lessons unless you have prior permission and sign out and then back in.
In Case of illness
It is important that you adhere to a few simple rules if you feel unwell during the school day.
You must ask either the Head of Sixth Form or Administrator for permission to go home.
You must sign out.
Unless you follow this procedure, your absence will be regarded as unauthorised and you will be expected to make up the time.
You must inform us before 9am if you know you are going to be absent from school because of illness. This can be a phone call from a parent/carer or yourself.
