Students attending Sixth Form will be able to pick them up in person, students who have left FPSS are advised to check on the website for an update and make use of the Certificate Collection form included in the Results envelope if they are not able to sign for their Certificates themselves.

  • If you cannot attend Results Day, download the Results Collection Form (below) and hand it in to the Exams Office.
