Certificates must be collected in person and signed for at Reception after 1st December (KS4) or after the presentation evening (KS5).

It is very important to collect your certificates and look after them carefully, as you will need them in the future and replacements are very expensive and difficult to obtain. The Holt School is not obliged to retain certificates after a year and unclaimed certificates may be destroyed or returned to the exam board.
