Exam Certificates

Exam certificates for exams sat in the Summer 2013 are available for collection.  Current students can collect their certificates on any school day between 3:15 and 4:00pm.  You will need to present photo ID.

If you have not collected your certificates for past exams please note that the school is no longer required to store these indefinitely on your behalf.  The Exam Boards’ requirement is that we hold certificates for a year.  As a gesture of good will the school will extend this to two years.  Certificates for exams taken up to and including the summer of 2010 have now been destroyed.

If are you are no longer a student of the school please send Mrs Fontivero an email containing your full name, DOB and the year you last sat exams so that we can check our archives.  Please allow at least 10 days.  Once your certificates have been located you will be notified by email and your certificates placed on reception for you to collect.  You will need to present photo ID.

All certificate collections must be signed for by the recipient.  If you are unable to attend in person you can nominate a third party to do so on your behalf; please email Mrs Fontivero with your third party details.  You will be sent a confirmation email which you must pass on to your third party to present together personal photo ID when collecting the certificates.  Additionally ex-students must email reception with the date they intend to come in so that access to the school can be arranged.



If you have lost your certificates or did not collect them and they have now been destroyed you will have to contact the individual exam boards for copies (AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC).  The school can let you have a statement of results printed on school note paper.  This service carries an administration fee of £10, but please note the school’s records only go back to the summer of 2003.  Please email Mrs Fontivero with your full name, DOB and the year you last sat exams.  It is a lengthy process to access the archives so please allow up to 28 days for a reply.  



If you failed to cash-in your exams in the series you sat them, you can apply for a late certification.  The school charges an administration fee of £10 in addition to any fees levied by the exam board.  Please note if the syllabus is no longer available the exam boards may not be able aggregate your units.
