Certificates must be collected in person from the Academy’s main reception.  

If you wish someone to collect them on your behalf, they will need a signed letter of authorisation from you, stating: 

  • Your name
  • date of birth
  • the year(s) you took your exams
  • the name of the person collecting the certificate

Anyone collecting certificates must bring ID to prove who they are. 

Don’t wait until it’s too late

We get calls every year from students who left 5-10 years ago who suddenly need their certificates for the first time. It costs around £40-£50 per exam board for a certified statement of results if you don’t have your certificates (see gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate for further information). 

Lost certificates

If you have lost your certificates we may be able to provide a statement of results. If you attended Darlaston Comprehensive we do not hold these records. For certified proof of results please follow this link for advice: https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate

Please keep your certificates safely – you will need them throughout your career.
