You are expected to attend 85% or more of your classes. If you are unable to attend a class then please contact our reception on 01273 810210 or email us at to inform us you will not be attending. If you know in advance that you are going to miss a session then you must inform your tutor with as much notice as possible.

To enable Friends Centre to run courses, you must attend all classes you are enrolled on. The funding that we receive is based on your attendance and what you achieve. If you have poor attendance, withdraw from classes, or do not sit an exam which has been arranged for you then we will receive less funding in future years. Therefore, we will review your attendance when it comes to re-enrolments and if you are under 85%, you will be placed on our waiting lists rather than being given priority.

  • For morning classes – Please call by 9.45am on the day of your class
  • For afternoon classes – Please call by 12.30pm on the day of your class
  • For evening classes – Please call by 4.00pm on the day of your class
