Collection of Certificate Information
Certificates will be available for collection and signed for on receipt from the Academy’s Exams Office from 8am on Thursday 20th August 2020. Please bring some form of photo ID with you (such as a Driving Licence or Passport).
If you are unable to collect them yourself you can give signed, written authority for someone to collect them on your behalf. They will also need to bring some proof of ID. We regret we cannot post certificates as they require a signature.
If certificates are not collected within twelve months of this date, the Academy can’t guarantee they will be kept.
After collecting your certificates, please keep them in a safe place. Exam Boards can provide replacement confirmation of results achieved, but not necessarily a replacement certificate, and they can charge in the region of £35 for this service.
