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 be closed on Monday 7th May for bank holiday.
  • We will close for the two week break on Friday 11th May 2018. All Year 11 students will have exams during the May break and timetables will sent to all parents.
