you should be able to because you won't be signing onto any register so just walk out, they can't exactly mark you as absent.

We're allowed to just leave when we have free periods, though we're supposed to sign out in case of a fire drill.. Very few people actually do.
We have registration/form first thing every morning, though, but if you have a free period first lesson on Monday/Wednesday/Friday you don't have to come in. On Tues/Thurs its an extended form/mentoring session, so everyone who has a lesson that day has to come in, even if their only lesson is last period...
Otherwise, free times are ours to do what we want with them. Only time we have to stay in college for a free is during the one period per week that gets assigned to 'Learning&Mentoring', which is basically the heads of 6th form helping people with studying or UCAS/CV stuff..
Edit: If a teacher isn't there, you're also allowed to collect the work and leave if you want. In fact, my Graphics class this year had a timetabled lesson with no teacher assigned (1 every other week), which we were allowed to have as a free if we wanted..
