Your certificates are valuable documents. Valuable in the sense that replacement copies can cost up to £45 per certificate but also as they are proof you studied at Ralph Allen and completed the courses. This is irrespective of the grades you achieved.

If you go on to further education anytime in the future you will need to produce them. Many employers will also ask to see them. It is in your interest to collect your certificates even if you don’t think you will ever need them.

We are only obliged to keep your certificates for one year after which they will be securely destroyed. Replacements will only be available directly from the relevant Examination Boards at a cost as previously mentioned.

How to get your certificates.

The GCE presentaion evening is 4pm on 4January. If you are unable to attend please collect your GCE certificates from the school main reception between Monday 6 - 10 February 2017

If you are unable to collect your certificates in person you may either;

1.    Email Mrs Lale, the Exam Officer  c.lale@ralphallemschool.com, with details of who you would like to collect them on your behalf. That person will need to bring ID with them upon collection. Unfortunately if we cannot see any ID we will not be able to release your certificates.

2.    Use the attached form to request postage of your certificates with a payment of £3.50 to cover the cost of posting and packaging. GCSE Certificates will be posted by second class recorded delivery on Friday 16 December. GCE Certificates will be posted 10 February.
