Brentford Station (South West Trains) is about 5 minutes from the school.
If your daughter is unable to attend school, we ask you to telephone the school by 8.30am It is not acceptable for the student telephone the school to explain her absence. If we do not hear from you, our Attendance Coordinator will contact home on the first day of absence. Notes for absence must be handed to the form tutor on returning to school. We do not authorise holidays in term time, unless there are exceptional circumstances. A holiday application form has to be completed for the Head Teacher's decision.
To fall in line with the government guidelines the school will not authorise holiday absences during term time.
Students who take holidays will be at risk of a fixed penalty notice being issued by the London Borough of Hounslow
Students who take extended leave are at risk of being removed from the school roll and will have to reapply through the London Borough of Hounslow.
Please note that there is no guarantee if your child is removed from our school roll that they will be reallocated a place at Brentford School for Girls.
This falls in line with the new legislation and the fact that our Persistent Absences will be raised from 85% to 90% for the Academic Year 2015/2016.
