FULLBROOK EXAMINATION POLICIES AND FORMS
Fullbrook offer a collection period for certificates following the end of each academic year (usually during the December and January following summer exams). Students are informed of collection arrangements at the time of issuing summer results in August and details of the arrangements will also be published here. Students are reminded that the results that they are issued in August are provisional and the only proof of grades are certificates.
Summer 2022 Certificate Collection Arrangements
Details or collection arrangements for summer 2022 certificates will be published here nearer the time.
Any student who missed their allocated collection periods have the following options for certificates:
Students and ex-students may collect their certificates by appointment only. To book an appointment please firstname.lastname@example.org and specify your preferred date and time for collection (Monday – Friday between 9:00am and 2:45pm – during term time only).
- The candidate named on the certificate must collect their certificates in person and show valid photo ID on collection. Alternatively, students can nominate someone to collect on their behalf. This must be done in writing (in advance via email by completing the relevant section on ‘Form 5 Alternative Arrangements for Certificate Collection’) – then that named individual must show valid photo ID when collecting
- You will be required to show valid photographic identification
- You will be asked to check and sign for receipt of your certificates
- Please enter the school from the main gates and go straight to reception where your certificates will be ready for collection
Students or Ex-students who are unable to collect certificates may either nominate someone to collect on their behalf or can request for these to be posted by a ‘tracked and signed for’ service (for which a fee of £5 applies for secure postage). All requests for certificate postage must be made in writing (via email to email@example.com by completing the relevant section on ‘Form 5 Alternative Arrangements for Certificate Collection’). Requests are processed weekly and certificates will only be posted once payment has been received in full.
Please note that Fullbrook are only required to retain uncollected certificates for a period of one year, after which point they may be securely destroyed in accordance with JCQ regulations.
