Reporting an absence

Absence due to illness

If you are absent from College due to illness or a medical appointment, you or your parent must telephone the College each day that you are absent.

Call 01823 320 800 and leave a message on the sickness line or email enquiries@huish.ac.uk.

Absence unrelated to sickness

If your absence is not due to illness/medical appointment or a College organised trip/activity, it must be approved in advance by the Deputy Principal to be marked ‘College Approved.’

College Closure

In the event of an unscheduled College closure (e.g. due to weather conditions), notifications will be sent via the Huish social media channels, local radio and an announcement will be posted on our homepage.
