Vacation Extra Centres
At College

Lessons may be mornings only or morning and afternoon. If lessons take place in the morning, activities will be in the afternoon and vice versa.

First day

Students should come to college by 08.30 on their first Monday morning. They will have a test and welcome talk, including information about the school, classes, activities and safety. They will receive a welcome pack, timetables and a map.

Later the new students will have a local orientation before receiving information about their classes and timetable.

Attendance rules

90% attendance = CERTIFICATE
Less than 90% = NO CERTIFICATE!

If students are absent for any reason, they must inform the Vacation Academic Coordinator.


Students must be on time for their lessons. If they are more than 5 minutes late, they will not be allowed into the class, and will be marked absent.

Mobile phones

Please ensure students switch their mobile phone OFF before they come into class. They must not make or receive calls in class, and must not send text messages. If they do not obey this rule, their teacher may take their phone away or ask them to leave the class.
