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.

Reminders:

  • School closes today for the two week break. We will reopen on Tuesday 29th May 2018.
  • Year 11 GCSE examinations will take place during the school holiday, please refer to the information sent home for dates and times.
