Attendance and Absences

Students Answering Questions


“Every Day in School Matters” 

At William Hulme’s Grammar School, we believe that regular school attendance and punctuality are key to enabling young people to reach their full potential; academically, socially and emotionally.

We expect every student to achieve a minimum of 96% attendance which is no more than 6 days missed in a school year. Frequent absences or patterns of absence will be investigated by the school’s attendance team. We expect senior school students to be sat in their form room at 08:30 ready for the register to be taken at 08:35 everyday.

While 90% attendance may seem good it actually accounts for half a day missed every week, this adds up to four weeks worth of lessons missed in one year! Research suggests that 17 missed school days a year will result in one GCSE grade drop in achievement.
