Results day 2021

We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome all Y11’s to collect their GCSE results on the 12th August 2021.

We have made necessary arrangements in order to follow social distancing guidelines.  Due to this we must therefore restrict access to the school site and request that students arrive unaccompanied.

Y11’s have been sent an appointment time between 10am – 12pm which they must adhere to.

We also request that students refrain from attending if they are displaying any Covid-19 symptoms on this date.

Exam Certificates

Arrangements for our certificate presentation evening 2021 will be communicated to leavers at the start of the new academic year in 2021/22.

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.
