2021 Exam Certificates

We are pleased to inform you that 2021 exam certificates are now ready for collection from the Academy in A Block reception. During term time the reception is open from 8.00am – 4.00pm. We require your child to collect their certificate(s) in person because these are legal documents. Alternatively, the person who is collecting them on their behalf must produce permission in writing from them in order for us to release the certificates.

During school holidays the reception will be accessible between the hours of 9.00am and 3.00pm, not including bank holidays.

Certificates will be held until October half term 2022, after that date they will be sent home.

Lost Results/Certificates

If you have lost your results within the last five years we can send you a copy of those results. We cannot help you with certificates; these are only produced by the exam boards and you will need to approach them directly. If your results span a period of five years or more, you must contact the exam boards directly.

If you can no longer remember which exam board your subjects were with, you should check whether a friend from school has their results, and ask them who their subjects were with as we do not hold that information. Follow this guideline here: https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate/if-your-old-exam-board-no-longer-exists

Once you know which boards to contact then please follow the links below:

 

Please remember this is not a free service and each exam board will charge you for obtaining this information.
