Student Absence Line:  0161 785 4048

Here at Oldham College our philosophy is non-attendance is not acceptable. This applies to all timetabled classes including Progress reviews, tutorials, self-directed study, maths & English lessons and work experience.  However, we do understand that there may be occasions where you genuinely cannot attend college due to illness or other special circumstances.

If for any reason you are unable to attend you must phone the Absence Line on 0161 785 4048 at least half an hour before your start time. You will be asked for your name, student number and reason for absence, as well as expected length of absence. Where possible you should make the call yourself.
