Statement of entries will be issued to students and available on the parent portal nearer the time.  Please click to access the candidate exam handbook 2022.


We retain uncollected certificates for 2 years. If you have not collected your certificates and you left Year 11 in either the summer of 2019, 2020 or 2021, these can be collected by you from the school's front office. This is open for collections between 9am and 3:30pm Monday to Friday, term time. Only the named student can collect their own certificates, unless they provide us with written authorisation to release the certificates to a named person and that person brings in photo id when collecting the certificates. 

We are required by the awarding body to return or destroy uncollected certificates. If you have not collected your certificates having left before the above dates, or you have lost your certificates, please use the appropriate links below to apply for copies directly with the appropriate awarding bodies. They all charge a fee for this service, so please look after your certificates. The school can not reissue any certificate.
