Exam Certificates

We are still hoping to hold our Y11 presentation evening in November where Year 11 leavers receive their certificates. If you are unable to attend Presentation Evening, please contact the school to make arrangements for collection. We will contact your with more information about the event nearer the time.

If you would like someone else to collect your certificates, they will need to bring written permission from you and should have identification with them.

The school is only obliged to keep the certificates for one year from the date of issue.  If you require them after this date please contact the individual examination boards direct. Please note a charge will apply.


Results day

We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome all Y11's to collect their GCSE results on 20th August. In order to achieve this we will be following social distancing guidelines.

Due to this we must restrict access to the school site and request that student's arrive unaccompanied. They have been sent an appointment time between 10am and 12pm which they must adhere to.

If they are unable to attend or cannot collect due to medical reasons please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
