Please note: we do not telephone results to students.

  • Leave a stamped addressed envelope with the Examinations Office for results to be posted.
  • Complete a Results Collection Request Form (below) for a nominated family member to collect your results on your behalf – this form must be completed by the student and passed to the person collecting your results. The form and ID need to be produced by the person collecting, before the results are handed over.


The candidate should collect their own certificate, however if this is not possible, a nominated person can collect on their behalf. The person will need to bring with them a signed authorisation form (see below) as well as the photo ID of the person collecting.

If you are unable to collect on this day, appointments can be made for collection Monday – Thursday between 3.15 and 4.20pm and Friday, 3.15 – 4pm. If this is still not suitable, please contact the school to arrange collection or in exceptional circumstances, Certificates can be posted out but the postage cost must be paid by the student and will depend on the weight. Please contact the exams Office to arrange this.

The school is only obliged to keep the Certificates for 1 year then they are either destroyed or returned to the exam board. At this point the cost of certificates will no longer be the responsibility of the school

For certificates in previous years, please contact tgs.exams@tgs.starmat.uk to arrange collection.
