A Level Certificate Collection and Presentation Evening

Details for former Year 13 students on how to collect their examination certificates.

As you may be aware, it is an exam board requirement that students obtain their exam certificates as they will be needed for employment and training in the future (so they need to be stored safely once received).  There are three options for collection from us at the school:

  1. We would like to invite former Year 13 students (who left us in July 2023) to attend a Certificate Presentation Evening on Tuesday 19 December 2023 from 5.30 pm.  Drinks and nibbles will be served, and certificates will be handed out.  If you are unable to attend the certificate evening you can:
  2. Collect your certificates in person on Friday 5 January 2024 from the Exams Office next to Student Services at Backwell School between 10.00 am and 3.30 pm.  (Please note that we cannot give certificates to anyone other than the student unless we receive a signed letter from them authorising someone else to collect the certificates on their behalf).
  3. Pay to have your certificates posted to your home address using a signed for delivery service.  Payment for this can be made via Parent_Pay_Shop.

CLICK HERE to complete a short online form confirming how you would like to receive your certificates.  The deadline for completion of this form is Wednesday 13 December 2023.

Please note that we are ultimately obliged to destroy certificates if they are not collected.  Students will incur a substantial fee if they need to request replacement documents from the examination boards in the future.

You are also warmly invited to the Backwell Music Department Winter Concert, which will be held in the School Theatre straight after the Certificate Presentation Evening on Tuesday 19 December 2023, at 7.00 pm.  This festive event will feature performances from our choirs, bands and ensembles.  The show is likely to run until about 9.00 pm and there will be an interval, where you will be able to buy drinks from the Backwell School Association bar.  Tickets priced at £5 and £3 (concessions) will be available to purchase in advance from

We hope to see many of you in December!
