Results collection:

In line with government health and safety guidance, unfortunately we will NOT be able to allow students to come to school to receive their grades. Instead, we will be emailing a full grade summary, exactly what would have been printed and given out, to all students via their @cockburnjohncharles.org email addresses. They will receive this email between 9:00am and 10:00am. We expect exam certificates to be delivered to school in late November 2020 and we will contact you again then with detail of how we will distribute these certificates.


Certificate Collection
Exam boards will release Vocational and GCSE certificates mid-November. School will contact students when they are available for collection, alternatively certificates can be posted provided a cheque is sent to school for the amount shown in the letter below. If students require certificates to be collected by someone other than themselves, the collector will be required to bring a letter signed by the student. Click here to download this letter.


Results request application
