Certificates

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.
