If you have left school your certificates will be available from collection from school reception in person.
You will need to arrange this through the Exams Office and, when collecting your certificates, you will need to sign the collection register.

If it is impossible for you to make the collection in person, you must nominate a trusted person to collect them on your behalf and ensure they bring written permission from you and their own identification. You can use the attached proforma if you wish.

You will be required to present original certificates at interviews.
