Exam certificates

Summer 2018 exam certificates are now available to collect.

Certificates for students who have left are available to collect from main reception.

If a friend of relative (including parents) is collecting certificates on behalf of the student please complete the permission for collection form available below. They should bring this form with them when they come to collect the certificates.

Unfortunately we are unable to post certificates due to their high replacement costs and for reasons of security.
