Results cannot be given out by telephone.

 

 Exam Certificates

Certificates are important legal documents that validate the qualifications you have earned during your time at Penketh High School. Consequently, you will need to collect your certificates from school.

Certificates can usually be collected from early December.

We usually retain certificates for two years. However, because of Covid, we have kept hold of certificates for 2019 and 2020 so pupils weren’t disadvantaged by not being able to collect them during lockdown. So if you left between 2019 and 2022, please contact Exams@penkethhigh.org to arrange your certificate collection.

If you left Penketh before Summer 2019, or have lost your certificates, you can find information on obtaining replacement certificates from the Awarding Organisation websites:

AQA also have some useful information on where results from predecessor Awarding Organisations are now held. This information can be found here:

Please note, Penketh High School is not liable for the application or payment of confirmation of results from Awarding Organisations.
