Our ‘Class of 2020’ certificate evening will take place at Bramhall High School in November 2020.
Invitation letters with a reply slip will be given to all students who complete their examination courses during the summer. It is hoped all ex-students of this year group will attend to celebrate their achievement with the Headteacher, their Teachers and Parents.
Once awarded, some students receive more than one from different examination boards, students must check that all the personal information is correct, especially the spelling of names. If there is a problem, the certificate must be returned personally to the Exams Office for return to the examination board. This usually takes two/three weeks. Students will be notified of its return, ready for collection.
Collection after Certificate Evening
Students unable to collect their certificates on the evening must phone 0161 439 8045 ext 126 or email email@example.com to arrange a convenient time and day to collect their certificates. Students must not just turn up at school and expect to be issued with their certificates. Certificates will only be issued to a third party (usually parent/guardian) on presentation of this form (from the student) and photo identification.
Safe Keeping and/or Replacement
Once awarded, the certificates must be kept in a safe place as they are difficult and expensive to replace. In some cases certificates will only be replaced if proof of loss is provided and Exam Boards will issue a ‘Statement of Results’, typically charging approximately £45 per statement.
The certificates will probably be required as proof by colleges and/or employers when applying for courses or employment.
