May 5 courses are pretty full on and she'll have started S4 timetable before the summer they'll be in the thick of it. Some subjects (ones where you could get her course notes to read -English, Social Subjects etc ) she'll probably be okay. But Maths and Sciences where learning is sequential missing a week could be tough. My DD 2 missed 2 weeks in August of S4 for a once in a lifetime trip . She was fine catch up wise but was taking lots of text based rather than numeracy heavy subjects and only doing Maths at Nat 4. DD3 might get the same offer this year at the same stage of her education and we might have to, sadly, turn it down. DD3 is doing Nat 5 Maths and Physics and it's beyond my (English teacher) skills to help her through what she will miss.

Sorry, probably not that helpful I suppose I'm trying to say depends what subjects she's taking and whether you can help her fill any knowledge and content gaps.

If you have a good relationship with dad's school, why not ask them what they think? They'll also know your dd and her ability to put in the work required.
