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.

Reminders:

Sports Day is on Tuesday, 17th July. Parents/carers are welcome to attend, there will be a designated parent/carer area. You may want to bring your own picnic blanket or chair. The even begins at 13:15pm.
