Please use the information below when required. If you need support with the completion of any of the forms, or would like advice and guidance, please discuss with your Pastoral Managers.
Attendance at College is one of the most important factors that impacts on achievement. Our Sixth Form Code of Conduct expects students to have an attendance of above 95% across the year. Students are expected to attend all timetabled lessons, timetabled learning support sessions in the Learning Resource Centre and also timetabled PSHEe lessons to support them with their aspirations after Sixth Form.
When reporting an absence please use the following guidelines:
Please complete this form and submit it to Mrs Hollyman seven days before an absence. These will be agreed by Mr Evason or Ms White.
Any absence owing to illness must be reported by 10.00am on the day of the absence by the student or their parent/carer. This can be done by contacting Mrs Hollyman via email or ringing the main College phone number.
It is a student’s responsibility to then email subject staff to apologise for their absence and request work to complete for the following lesson. It is expected that students will have a conversation with their teachers on their return to College to ensure all homework and missed classwork is collected and acted upon for an agreed deadline.

NUS Extra Card
Students can apply for an NUS Extra card which will entitle them to discounts in some shops, cinemas etc. It costs £12 per year and is a photo ID. Applications are made by the students through the NUS Extra website (link). The cards are then sent to College and students will receive an email when they have arrived.
If you are under 19, you can use this card to buy an East Sussex Freedom bus ticket for £16.00 from the bus driver. This ticket gives you unlimited travel on almost any bus in East Sussex for seven days in a row, including weekends. Application forms can be downloaded online. Completed forms and photographs should be taken to Mrs Hollyman who will authorise your application and send to ESCC. Your 3-id card will be sent to your home address.
Choice ID cards can also be used for this academic year to purchase an East Sussex Freedom bus ticket. Please see Mrs Hollyman for an application form. Please note that these cards will cease to be accepted by bus drivers from July 2018.
