    I’m not actually sure how I want to do this; ideally, I would have most weeks off until my A-Level exams, or just take the next few weeks off until Easter holidays. I want to take this time off to study really hard at home, which is something that I do a lot better at home than at school. I know people have serious doubts about this, but I know how I study, and I don’t really want this thread to be people trying to convince me to stay.

    I know a girl who hasn’t been in school for two months, as she prefers studying at home. I have no contact with her, so I’m not sure how she did it. Should I write a formal letter to the principal explaining genuinely why I won’t be in, come up with a long-term excuse, or just not show up?

    My parents understand how I study and fully support my leave, it’s just convincing the school that’s the issue. Is this kind of leave legal, for starters? What do you think?

    how old are you?
    it used to be that if you were 16, you could leave in the January. they scraped that when I was 16, but I got study leave from May.

    if someone else has left then you may have some luck, if they left to study.
    I wouldn't lie, if all your lessons are study sessions then just ask to be allowed to study at home.
    if your school believe you'll Study, they may allow it.

    If you’ve finished content then don’t go. Im going to do the same as soon as we finish all the content in school because i know its gonna be a waste of time afterwards.
