Getting through exams can be a challenge, but try not to panic. There are ways to beat exam stress and make sure you get the best possible results. You might also find the following links useful:
Results will be available on Thursday 23rd August 2018, 9.30am–10.30am. If you intend to send somebody to collect your results on your behalf, they must bring with them a letter explaining this, signed by you. Without this we are not able to hand over your results.
If you would like your results sent home, please bring a stamped, addressed A5 envelope in to school and hand to reception before the end of term. Results cannot be given out over the telephone or by email.
Certificates will be available to be collected from the school at the end of November 2018. These must be signed for, and cannot be posted home.
We are required to keep certificates for one year only, after this time they can be confidentially destroyed. It is very important that you collect them, as you will need them for college, university or job applications.
If you have lost your certificates or did not collect them, and the academy no longer has them, you will need to order replacements from the exam boards. Click here for further information.
