The Summer School reserves the right to send home any student who:

  • Breaks these rules or who has persistent bad behaviour.
  • Presents with a safeguarding or wellbeing issue.
  • Or, for any other reason deemed to put members of the Summer School community or themselves in danger or the good reputation of Concord College at risk.

The student will be sent home at the parents’ expense and fees will not be refunded (Terms and Conditions policy).  The Summer School’s decision will be final and, due to the short length of the course, there is no right to appeal.  However, parents may refer to the Summer School’s Complaints Policy if it is felt necessary.

Students on the Science summer programmes will also need to abide by the Laboratory Rules which will be issued and discussed during their first science lesson.
