    You'll probably get a detention and that's about it.

    If you skip classes all the time, act badass at least. What are you so scared of? You'll likely get detention.

    Of course they will tell your parents, why wouldn't they? As for hiding in the toilets and listening to music, one did you think that one nobody would hear it, two your teachers wouldn't realise you were absent and had been in for the rest of the day, and three that you would be able to walk out of the school gate without anyone realising you were absent for that one lesson?

    You have got your parents into more trouble than you; recently a large amount of schools have started to fine parents money for their children not turning up to school, and not being in lessons. The school will give you a detention and your absence will be recorded, your parents will be told and if your abscences increase, your parents may be fined. I don't imagine your parents will be thrilled about paying money because you couldn't be bothered to utilise your free education, just turn up.

    I don't think I'll have children, I can't stand them anyway. All I've told him is the truth, schools have started to fine parents for their children's truancy, and the school will tell his parents, whether they eventually fine them or not. He needs to realise what he's done and the consequences nces for it, he should be scared of his parents' reaction.

    Your system is really strict. So even if you skip only one lesson, the school is going to take all these measure?

    Where I live, students can actually skip 15 lessons before their parents are announced, but usually nobody bothers to call home so they skip way more.

    My school will always call your parents if you haven't done your homework, skip a lesson, are rude to the teacher, have been sent out of the lesson, etc. I guess some schools don't care, but mine does and it's a good school. If you don't have clear boundaries, you can't be consistent with authority, warnings and consequences.

    Mine is considered the best in the city, which is quite small, but we have students who are now at Cambridge or Oxford. I would like to say it's the merit of the teachers, but not really. I wish they cared that much about students, but unfortunately they don't. :lol: Consider yourself lucky.

    You will get a detention and that's it, if you fail to attend that then things can escalate. I remember my parents would get phone calls home saying I was skipping when I never even had any lessons the times I did skip, they never even did anything lol

    It depends on the school. When I was in year 11, I mostly just showed up for registration at the start and end of the day and went to a volunteer job. The teachers didn't seem to notice or care. I think they were more focused on the gang violence and teacher/student relationship scandals.
