16 and 17 year old Curfew

If you are 16 or 17 years old, you will only be allowed out at night time by yourself if this has been agreed and signed for by your parents using our parental permission form before you start. 16 and 17 year olds must be home by 10pm. You must give your host family or the Residence Manager the details of where you are going, who you are going with and how they can contact you. Students who are 16 or 17 whose parents have not signed the parental permission form or who are under 16 years old are not allowed to leave the Residence or host family without being accompanied by a designated adult. If you are going to be on an activity or in the care of your group leader, please make sure that your host family has been informed.
