Summer 2019 Exam Certificates are now ready for collection from the school office. If students are unable to collect in person, they can nominate someone else to collect them for them as long as they write a letter of authorisation that the nominated person will need to bring with them.

Please be advised that any certificates not collected by the end of summer term 2020 will be returned to the appropriate exam boards and you will have to contact them directly and pay for a replacement certificate
