GCSE Results Day
GCSE results day is Thursday 24th August 2023. Students are invited to collect their results in person from 9am to 12pm from the main hall. We kindly request that students come to the school personally to collect the results, as we believe this fosters a sense of accomplishment and allows for face-to-face interaction Additionally, we encourage parents/carers to accompany their children during this significant moment, as it provides an opportunity to celebrate their achievements together however, we ask that parents/carers wait in the canteen outside the main hall.
If you are unable to collect your results then you must complete the Alternative Arrangements for Results Collection form which can be found at the bottom of the page to download.
There will be a few staff on hand to give out results envelopes and answer queries, as best we can. When collecting their results students will be asked to sign a release form which allows us to access their scripts in case a review of marking is required or to support future teaching purposes.
Further details of post results services can be found below:

King's Academy Binfield offers a collection period for certificates following the end of each academic year (typically during the December and January following summer exams). Students are informed of collection arrangements at the time of issuing summer results in August and details of the arrangements will also be published here. Students are reminded that the results that they are issued in August are provisional and the only proof of grades are certificates.
When collecting their certificates students must bring a valid ID on collection. For students who are unable to collect their certificates during that window there are two options available to collect certificates:
Collection by another person
The candidate can nominate someone to collect on their behalf. This must be done in writing (in advance via email by completing the relevant section on ‘Form 5 Alternative Arrangements for Certificate Collection’) – then that named individual must show valid photo ID when collecting.
Students or Ex-students who are unable to collect certificates may either nominate someone to collect on their behalf or can request for these to be posted by a ‘tracked and signed for’ service (for which a fee of £5 applies for secure postage). All requests for certificate postage must be made in writing (via email to email@example.com by completing the relevant section on ‘Form 5 Alternative Arrangements for Certificate Collection’). Requests are processed weekly and certificates will only be posted once payment has been received in full.
Please note that King's Academy Binfield are only required to retain uncollected certificates for a period of one year, after which point they may be securely destroyed in accordance with JCQ regulations. We would like to make you aware that some Exam Boards do not offer a replacement certificate service and in such circumstances will issue a Certifying Statement of Results, which may incur a fee.
King's Academy Binfield do not keep copies of certificates. The government website gives advice and information for what to do if you have lost examination certificates – https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate
