Collection of Examination Certificates

Examination certificates for the academic year 2022-2023 are now available for collection from the school, during normal school opening hours.

Where possible, students should collect their certificates in person and they will be asked to sign acknowledging receipt. If however they are unable to do this, they must provide written permission for someone else to collect and sign on their behalf. A signed, written note or an email (which must be sent from a personal email address of the student) is acceptable. These must name the person collecting on their behalf.

Please note that we cannot release certificates to anyone other than the student without written permission.
