Celebration of Student Work

Attendance Matters

Every single day a student is absent from school equates to a day lost of learning. At Corby Technical School we pride ourselves in maintaining excellent attendance. Our target is to achieve and maintain a whole school attendance of above 96.5%. We will be giving you weekly updates on our whole school attendance, the tutor group and house who achieved the highest attendance this week.


  • School will close today for the two week break. Tuesday 28th May is a staff training day, school will reopen to students on Wednesday 29th May.
