Collecting Certificates

Candidates are able to collect certificates from Main Reception (see “Certificates from Summer…” above) and can do so between 08:30 and 15:30, on any normal term-time School day.

Any candidate collecting exam results from Main Reception must present photographic ID.

Third Party Collection

If the candidate cannot collect in person, then they can nominate a third party to do so, but they must complete the “Candidates Unable to Collect Certificates in Person – Third Party” form (click to download).

Posting Certificates

If you provide us with an A4 stamped addressed envelope, we will be able to post your certificates to you – please print and complete the “Candidates Unable to Collect Certificates in Person – Posting” form (download below), and send it (with your A4 stamped addressed envelope).

We are able to post to any address that you put on the A4 stamped addressed envelope, but the address completed on the “Candidates Unable to Collect Certificates in Person – Posting” form must be the most recent home address that we hold on record for you whilst you studied at The King’s (The Cathedral) School – this is for verification purposes.

Please note that we will only accept applications for this “Candidates Unable to Collect Certificates in Person – Posting” service after certificates are issued for collection from Main Reception (see “Certificates from Summer…” above).


As per exam board regulations; “Any unclaimed certificates must be stored securely for at least 12 months, then destroyed confidentially or sent back to us.”

Certificates from exam sessions previous to Summer 2019 have been securely destroyed – candidates must contact exam boards directly – see “Lost Certificates” below.


Replacement Certificates

If you have never collected your certificates, or have lost them, you will need to contact the exam boards direct to apply for replacements;

Please note that some exam boards do not offer replacement certificates, but instead issue a Certifying Statement of Results.
