Class of 2019 GCSE certificates collection
14 November 2019
Class of 2019 can now collect their GCSE certificates from the school office.
Certificates are available to collect during school hours by either the former pupil or their parents and must be signed for*. Please note: Those that attended the Celebration Evening on 6 November will still need to collect their AQA exam board certificates as these hadn't arrived in time for the event.
We would like to take this opportunity to emphasise how important it is that the exam certificates are collected. The certificates are very important documents that are likely to be needed throughout the future and particularly if a path to university is planned.
School is only legally obliged to keep certificates for a 12 month period, after which time they are disposed of. If copies of certificates are needed after that time, students will need to contact the appropriate examination board(s) directly and pay costs to obtain copies. As you will appreciate, these costs can mount up.
*If any other person is collecting the certificates on your behalf they must have a note, signed by the pupil, authorising your permission for school to release them.
