GCSE and GCE Exam Certificates – Summer 2016

This is to inform you that your exam certificates are ready for collection.

For students who have left the school, certificates can be collected from the School Reception between now and Friday 13 January 2017. Current year 11, 12 and 13 students can collect their certificates through their year heads office.

After the 13th January, any certificates not collected will be returned to the Exam Board. We advise you to collect your certificates as a matter of urgency as it can prove quite difficult to obtain them once they have been returned to the exam board.

If certificates are being collected on behalf of a candidate, photo- ID and written permission from the candidate will be needed.

It is very important for you to have your certificates for future reference when applying for College placements and attending job interviews.

The cost of a replacement certificate (if lost or destroyed) is over £40.00, payable to each of the individual awarding bodies, for this reason, certificates will not be posted to candidates.

The certificates for the L3 Mathematical studies have not yet arrived but AQA have been contacted. Candidates will be informed when they arrive.

Author visit


Richard Kurti, author and screenwriter, will be visiting JHNCC on 23rd November, to deliver a creative writing workshop to KS3 students.

KS4 – KS5 Study Trip to Poland

2nd July 2017 – 5th July 2017

World War destruction and years of communist rule have done much to damage Poland’s heritage. Yet amazingly the ancient royal city of Krakow survives and with its medieval market square and Grand Cloth Hall, the city rivals the beauty of Prague and Vienna.

School trips to Krakow are ideal for history, Philosophy, RE and law students, as well as anyone with a passion for new places and learning. This city is home to the Jewish quarter where Schindler’s List was filmed and perhaps more importantly, Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps. Students will be able to really savour the harsh realities of Nazi occupation, by learning of the horrors of WWII and more about the Jewish people and their struggle.

Girls’ Football Tournament

On Monday 17th October JHNCC hosted a girls’ 7 a-side football tournament, in celebration of Girls’ Football Week. Three schools from the local area came over to play on our fantastic new 3G pitch and there was some great football on show. Fourteen of our Year 7 girls took part in this event and were a credit to our school. Four of our Year 9 students refereed all the games and received praise from the other schools for their leadership skills. Congratulations to all those involved!
