Exam Certificates

Exam certificates from Summer 2020 will be available for collection from school on Monday 21st of December, starting at 9am and continuing until 11am. Students should enter the main hall directly from the school car park to collect their certificates.

As with exam results, students should line up outside, socially distanced as appropriate, and enter the hall when they are told to do so. Certificates must be collected by the students themselves, unless someone else has permission to do so on their behalf. Please see below for a permission form and send a scan or good quality photograph to Mr Greer (exams@minster.notts.sch.uk) at the school prior to collection day.

If you cannot collect your certificates between 9am and 11am on Monday 21st December, please contact our exams officer Mr Greer to arrange collection after Christmas (exams@minster.notts.sch.uk).
