If you wish to have your results emailed please send a request to ExamResults@ralphallenschool.com with the level (GCSE, AS or A level) in the title and your name. Emails will be sent after 1pm.  


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 course. 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 best time to collect your certificates is during certificate presentation evenings. For students sitting exams this summer details of the presentation evenings will be posted nearer the time. 

GCSE certificates will be available to collect from the school main reception between 11-14 December 2017

GCE certificates will be available to collect from the school main reception between 8 - 12 January  2018
