So I've recently received notice that a sixth form that I've applied to has offered me an interview. The problem is that the interview is in school hours, at 11:20am. Luckily I don't have any mocks on that day but I'm not sure if my school would be very happy with me taking time off to go to an interview. I don't know if this is the norm with most sixth forms or do most do theirs after school or on a non-school day. Also, if the interview is in school hours do you need to pre-arrange it with your school or can you just stroll out on the day? I'm thinking of asking the college to change it but I don't know if they'd be happy doing it after school or on a non-school day.

There's no reason why your school wouldn't authorise you to leave for a period of time in the school day to attend an interview. I'd let them know before, maybe get your parents to write a note if that's the norm for your school. They'll probably be used to it this time of year.
