Exam Certificates

Due to Covid-19 we are unable to hold our usual certificate presentation evening. We have arranged a certificate collection morning on Monday 4th January.

An invitation will be posted out to leavers with an allocated appointment time between 10.30 & 12.30. We must restrict access to the school site. Therefore we respectfully request that leavers adhere to their appointment time and that they arrive unaccompanied.

If leavers are unable to attend the certificate collection day, please contact the school to make alternative arrangements for collection.

If they would like someone else to collect their certificates on their behalf, the nominated person will need to bring written permission from the leaver and should have identification with them.

We have requests daily from past students who require copies of their GCSE certificates. Although students may not need their certificates at this moment in time, they are often asked for them for future jobs and courses. The school is only obliged to keep the certificates for one year from the date of issue so we are often unable to help. If you require them after this date please contact the individual examination boards directly. Please note a charge will apply.


Results day

We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome all Y11's to collect their GCSE results on 20th August. In order to achieve this we will be following social distancing guidelines.

Due to this we must restrict access to the school site and request that student's arrive unaccompanied. They have been sent an appointment time between 10am and 12pm which they must adhere to.

If they are unable to attend or cannot collect due to medical reasons please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
