A Level – Results Day

A Level Results will be available for collection on 16th August at 9:00 am in the school hall.

If your son/daughter cannot collect his results in person, they must send in a letter (enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope), or an email nominating a responsible person to collect them on their behalf. Alternatively, we hope to publish results on MCAS after 12 noon.

Members of staff will be available to advise your son/daughter if they have any issues regarding University places or if they wish to query results. Documents relating to review of results and access to scripts will be available on reception or on the school website https://verulamschool.co.uk/about-us/exam-information/exam-details/

Please note that certificates will be available for collection in December. We will notify you, but it is important that certificates are collected promptly as we are only allowed to keep them for one year and due to GDPR rules they then have to be destroyed.

Yours sincerely

Mrs S Armstrong
