EXAM RESULTS DAY 2021

GCSE and all Vocational exam results will be available to students on Friday 27th August.

It is not yet clear how these results will be shared with the students. However, it is doubtful that results day will be the experience students may have normally expected. As soon as we have a clearer picture, we will be in touch with parents and students. ​

Certificates

Certificates generally become available to students in the November after they sit their exams in the Summer.
We will contact you nearer to the time to arrange collection of your certificates.

 

Your certificates are very valuable & should be kept safe at all times. If you lose them, you will be charged by the awarding bodies for replacements or statement of results, whichever the board provides. They do not all send replacement Certificates. You will be charged for each search you request to each of the Boards. Prices vary from board to board.
