Summer 2020 exam certificates
Summer 2020 exam certificates will be available for collection from school in person once national/local lockdown restrictions allow. If you arrive at school to collect these whilst we are under such restrictions, you will be turned away. Currently we hope to be able to issue these once the national lockdown lifts but please consider any local restrictions that are then put into force.
All absences need to be phoned in by 9am on the absence line number 01782 883003 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
