The Learning Records Service

All pupils in year 9 are assigned a Unique Learner Number (ULN). They are required to have this before sitting any GCSEs and this is then recorded on exam result slips and certificates. The ULN enables them to access a verified online record of achievements and qualifications continuously throughout their education and career. To find out how to do this please click here:
