Collecting Examination Certificates

Exam certificates come directly to the school and are not sent to individual students. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that certificates are collected from the school within 24 months of issue. Certificates not collected within 24 months will be securely destroyed and students are liable for the cost of a replacement certificate. Students are advised to contact the school to ensure that their certificate is available for collection before making arrangements to attend. When collecting certificates, students should bring appropriate photo ID with them, such as a passport or driving licence. This must be pre-arranged with the Exams Office.
