RESULTS DAY AND POST RESULTS SERVICE
Results day can be very exciting and daunting in equal measures for some students. Great Sankey High School staff will be onsite to share this special moment and offer support and guidance.
Please contact the Exams Officer via email to arrange collection of your certificates clare.delmont@great sankey.org
If someone is collecting certificates or results on your behalf, please complete a Third Party Collection Form. Please ensure the person collecting has photo ID with them.
Certificates are only required to be kept for a minimum of 12 months. After this time, the school is able to destroy any uncollected certificates. We will aim, where possible, to keep them for 24 months. Please contact the Exams Officer to check if we still hold them, if we do not, information on obtaining replacement certificates can be found on: https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate
Not all awarding bodies offer a replacement certificate service. In such circumstances the awarding body will issue a Certifying Statement of Results. Where either a replacement certificate or Certifying Statement of Results is issued, it will provide an accurate and complete record of results for all qualifications covered by the original certificate.
