Please note that the school is only required to keep your certificates for a year but as a gesture of goodwill, the school keeps them for two years after which they are securely destroyed.

Certificates from the Autumn 2022 season
These are ready for collection. Please email email@example.com to arrange collection at the school gate between these times -
9.00 – 2.30

Please bring photo ID with you. If you are sending someone else to collect them for you, please email your permission to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them to bring their own photo ID.
On-roll students who are wishing to pick up certificates from past years should email email@example.com.
Students no longer on-roll
Students should email firstname.lastname@example.org and state:
- Full Name
- Candidate number
- Last year exams were sat
Students must inform MHCHS Security and Reception of the date they intend to collect their certificates so that access to the school site can be arranged. Photo ID (driving licence, passport etc.) will be required when collecting certificates. Whilst on the school site students must collect their certificates and leave directly. They are forbidden to wander around the school seeking out friends or teachers.
Third party collections
These are available if students are unable to collect their certificates themselves. The student must send a copy of their Driving Licence or a copy of the picture page of their passport together with the third party information. Email email@example.com with this information who will send a confirmation email to be passed on to the third party, which must then be presented to reception together with personal photo ID so that the third party can be identified. Certificates will not be handed over unless the school can be satisfied that the transaction is genuine. MHCHS Security and Reception must be informed of the date for the third party collection.
firstname.lastname@example.orgAll requests can take up to two weeks to process. Certificates will be placed on reception when they are ready for collection and the student informed.
The School is no longer required to store these indefinitely. The Exam Boards’ requirement is that certificates are held for a year. As a gesture of goodwill the school will extend this to two years. Certificates for exams taken up to and including the Summer of 2016 have now been destroyed.
Statements of Results
MHCHS can let you have a Statement of Results printed on school note paper for a fee of £10 or £1 on plain paper. However please note the school’s electronic records only go back to the summer 2014. It is a lengthy process to access the archives therefore requests can take up to 4weeks to process. Please email email@example.com with the following information:

Secure collection requirements are as per certificates. Payment to be made directly to the school’s bank account. You will be given the details when the request is processed.
The school is happy to provide up to 3 copies free of charge but can only do so if the certificates are brought up to the school. Please email the Exams Office with the date and time you are able to do this. Please note the main hours the Exams Office is open is 10am-3pm but on some days it can open earlier and close later.
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 with your full name, DOB and the year you last sat exams.

Information about students' data
Relevant personal data will be transferred to the awarding bodies for the purpose of examining and awarding qualifications. Awarding bodies may be required to provide a candidate’s personal data to educational agencies such as DfE, The Skills Funding Agency, regulators, UCAS, Local Authorities, EFA and Learning Records Service (LRS). Additionally, candidates’ personal data may be provided to a central record of qualifications approved by the awarding bodies for statistical and policy development purposes. Awarding bodies maintain a comprehensive archive record of candidates’ examination results. The purpose is to provide an audit trail of the results certificated and to maintain an accurate record of an individual’s achievements.
