    So my mum wants to visit my grandmother, and my dad booked the dates without really asking me, when he told me about them and I did a bit of research on the term dates for my sixth form next year, they start teaching on the 5th of September, and my parents are planning on returning on the 6th of September. So this means I will miss the first two days of the start of my year 12. Is this bad? what should I do? will I miss anything important or will it set a bad impression for my classmates and teachers?

    You can catch up, it’s just introductory lessons for the first few - you probably won’t even start learning anything, the teachers just go over the course content for the following years

    You’ll be fine just tell the teachers the situation

    It would not give a bad impression, there are many students who do not arrive at the school for the induction day of sixthform. Moreover, the first 2 days of sixthform comprises of settling in, either recieving lectures, recieving your books and meeting your teachers. Learning would not begin immediately, however, it may be courteous if you emailed the head of sixth form or the registrar responsible for admissions. The best possible resolution to your problem, is by doing this so that they understand your situtation, thus you could possibly email them now.

    I agree with above, I'd just say though that if you're starting a brand new sixth form then it might be harder to settle into friendships and the school, as thats what the first few days of sixth form is for. But you don't learn anything in the first few days so it should be fine from the academic side.

    Depends on your school. Presumably this is abroad? the school can view it as an unauthorised absence..
    You wont miss much work, but a bit awkward on the making friends front, but you can catch up.

    Genuinely the first day is just about settling in and sorting out your timetable, study desk (if you have one) and getting to know the other sixth form students/staff. It should be fine.

    I see, thank you all for making this clear, I will speak to my parents about it and I will let the school know.
