Exams Update 2022-23

Exam Certificates. Summer 2022 Examinations

Students can come into school to collect and sign for exam certificates from Monday 5th December 2022. If a student is not able to come in personally and would like their certificates to be collected on their behalf, we will need their signed permission. We also ask the person collecting to bring proof of identity. JCQ require schools to keep certificates for 1 year only - however Hilbre High School do hold on file uncollected certificates for students who certificated in the last 3 years.  

Certificates should always be retained - never destroyed - and stored in a safe place. Replacement certificates can only be requested from the respective exam boards and the exam board will charge approximately £40 per certificate. Gov.UK : Replacement Exam Certificates
