    They can do whatever they like, but that sounds dodgy reasoning to me

    I believe so as refusing to comply with the school rules, challenges the authority of the school. When and if you get to uni then you can decide what you wish to attend, but at the moment you are a child.


    Give it a go and report back. You can prepare a human rights claim as well.

    They could, but I doubt they would.

    Bear in mind as you go through life that pastoral activities like form and assemblies have their place. 100% work doesn't necessarily make you a more effective student or employee. At uni (if you go) you will have tutorials and one to ones and so on. You will also probably have faculty lectures on general issues not related to your course material. At work you will also have meetings and one to ones and periodical reviews. Sometimes these will consist of idle chat, general updates and so on. They have their place and not taking part can make you seem like you are not a team player, not interested in anything except your immediate role, etc.

    Sorry, getting a bit heavy considering it's only form and assembly at college we're talking about, but as someone who is clearly conscientious (you obviously care about your work) it is worth bearing in mind.
