Further information will follow as soon as we have it, regarding how to apply to sit the exams, any fees involved and deadlines for submitting applications.  Please keep checking the website for updates.


Following Senior Awards Evening (Monday 14 December, 2020) certificates will be available for students, who were unable to attend the evening, to collect in person from school. 

Students no longer at Tadcaster Grammar School can collect certificates from the Main School Office during office hours. If a student is unable to collect their certificates in person they can nominate a sibling or parent to collect on their behalf, the person collecting on behalf of the student must have a letter authorising them to do so from the student or a completed Certificate Collection Request Form (below).

Students are strongly advised to collect their certificates at their earliest convenience, for further education and employment applications in the future.
