GCSE Certificates for 2022 and 2023

GCSE Certificates and awards for 2023 are available to be collected from the school main reception. You will need your GCSE certificates for your further career and especially if you decide to go to university in the future. The school is not obligated to retain your certificates for an indefinite amount of time, so you are advised to arrange for their collection. Please notify the school Exams Office by emailing exams@obhs.org.uk, if you would like to nominate someone to pick them up on your behalf.
