Please come into school on the above days/times to collect your results. Any results not collected on the day will be posted to your home address.

Teachers and staff will be on hand on Thursday 17 and Thursday 24 August for any urgent queries following the issue of results.

Enquiries about results

If you wish to make an enquiry about any of your results, you will need to complete an Enquires/Consent form, which should be returned to the school by Wednesday 6th September 2017.

When the request is received, the enquiry will then be made when payment is received.  Payment can be made by cash or cheque. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Digitech Studio School’.

Access to scripts

You may be aware that it is now possible for individual candidates, or their school, to request original exam papers (scripts) for the following:

All GCE A and AS Level

All GCSE

If you are interested in requesting your script, please note the cost will be per script, not per subject. You will also need to complete an Enquiries/Consent form and state which exam board you wish to request a script from i.e. AQA, EDEXCEL, OCR or WJEC and the unit code and subject together with the Service number. Please then pass this to the Exams Office by Wednesday 6th September 2017.

Requests cannot be made without accompanying payment.  Cheques should be made payable to ‘Digitech Studio School’.

Examination Certificates

 Your results slips are a provisional statement of your results; they are not certificates.  The Examination Boards provide certificates once the enquiry deadlines have passed and you will need these as official evidence of your results.  It is important that you remember to collect your Examination Certificates; they will be available for collection from Reception during January 2018.  This must be done in person, as they will need to be signed for.
