After Exams

Letter from the Exams Officer (TBC)

RESULTS DAY: Thursday 22nd August 2024 between 10-12 noon

  • When does my child get their exam results? Pupils should arrive in school between 10-12 noon on the morning of 22nd August to collect their results.

CERTIFICATES: are usually available from November onwards each year

How does my child get their exam certificates? –

Your child MUST collect them personally. If they are unable to, they can nominate a parent/carer to collect on their behalf. To nominate an individual, the student will have to write a letter stating the name of the person they wish to collect their certificates and sign the letter. The nominated individual will need to present the letter and Photographic ID at reception for the certificates to be issued. We have an example letter here which you can print off and complete.

Certificates are kept for 1 year before being destroyed. After this time you will have to request a copy of your certificate direct with each exam board which will include a fee. Please contact each exam board directly.
