The figures indicate that attendance at the College is maintained at a high level.  Authorised absence is where students miss college for a genuine reason such as illness, funeral, hospital appointment, music examination etc.  An absence is deemed unauthorised where a note is not provided or where the reason given is not acceptable to the College.  The College strongly discourages absence for holidays within term-time and there are very few cases where students are missing from College through "truanting".
