Exams Information


Certificates for 2023 leavers can now be collected from Main School Reception. Please note that reception is normally only open until 4pm during term time, so you must use the ‘Contact Us’ facility to reach the exams team if required. Unfortunately, certificates can not be posted out.

Certificates for current students can be obtained from Post 16 reception or by contacting the exams team. Students who did not take their exams at Ridgewood will need to collect their certificates from their previous school.

Certificates must be collected and signed for by the student. If this is not possible, a third party collection form must be completed by the student and given to a nominated person. We do not post certificates due to the high cost of replacement, should they go missing.

If you believe you have not collected your certificates from previous years, use the ‘contact us’ button and we will be able to check for you. Please do not visit the school to enquire about older certificates as they are in secure storage and may not be available immediately.

Lost/misplaced examination certificates

It is vitally important to keep your certificates safe once collected. We do not keep copies, and exam boards will charge around £50 per certificate to obtain a replacement. Uncollected certificates from previous years may not be held by the school, as we are required by the regulations to retain them only for a period of 12 months. If you require replacement certificates, you must contact the relevant exam board(s) as we are unable to progress this on your behalf. Further information on how to proceed can be found here;


Please get in touch with the exams team, via the enquiry form on our Contact Us page, should you have any further questions.
