Attendance and punctuality

Covid 19 - please monitor school communications for up to date timetable changes. The information below applies to non Covid restrictions.

We expect high levels of attendance and punctuality from all our students.

In normal times students must be in school by 8.25am. Anyone arriving between 8.25 - 8.45am will have a 15 minute detention that day. Anyone arriving after 8.45am will have a 30 minute detention that day.

Students who are persistently late will receive further sanctions, such as phase leader detentions, Saturday detentions, and/or meetings with parents.

Parents should report all student absences by 9am on each day of absence, including the reason for absence and the expected date of return. Absence messages can either be left on the absence line by selecting option one at the main switchboard, 0208 948 1173 or by emailing

Holidays and visits must not be taken during term time. Any requests for such absence will be declined unless there are exceptional circumstances which must be evidenced to the head teacher.
