How to Write an Application to obtain School Leaving Certificate

Most of us, sometimes in life are going to have to write a school-leaving certificate, which can be a nasty job to do, especially if you don’t know how to write one. Whenever a student leaves a school, he or she has to request from their school for issuing a school leaving certificate, so they can get admission in some other school. Every school demands a school leaving certificate from newcomers so that they can give admission to that student. It ensures that the student is not currently enrolled in some other school at the same time.

State Reasons for Leaving the School:

A student can leave school for a number of reasons. For example, his/her parents are migrating to a different city or country, the school in which the student is currently studying doesn’t offer a particular course or program that the student wants to pursue, the student may want to pursue his/her further education from a different school or the school may be too expensive for the student to afford. Whatever the reason may be, you need a school-leaving certificate which is proof of you leaving a particular school. The school that you want to get admission in also wants to make sure that you have cleared all the past dues that were owed by you from your former school.

Your Guide to Writing a Perfect School Leaving Certificate Application:

If you want a school leaving certificate from your school, you should know how to devise an application for it. You need to be very specific and respectful in your application. So, it is good to follow a particular format or method so that you can ensure clarity. An application for school leaving certificate should have the following things in it:

    • Greetings to the person to whom the application is addressed.
    • The subject of the application
    • The reason for you leaving school
    • The length of your leave, if you are leaving the school temporarily

To,
The Headmaster,
(School’s Name),
(School’s Address).

Subject: Request for school leaving certificate

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am stating this with all due respect that I am studying in grade eight in your esteemed institution. My father is an army officer and was posted in this city for two years. Those two years are ending next month and he has been posted in another city. All of his family, including me, are accompanying him and are moving out of state with him.

This situation has left me unable to continue my education in this school and my father doesn’t want to leave his family behind either. Therefore, I have to request for a school-leaving certificate which will enable me to get admission in another school. I will be very thankful to you if you approve this request of mine and grant me a school leaving certificate. 

Yours Faithfully,

To,
The Headmaster,
(School’s Name),
(School’s Address).

Subject: Request for school leaving certificate

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing this with a heavy heart to state that I have been a faithful student of this school since the first grade. I have been appearing in every exam since then and cleared them with distinction. I have found this school to be very competitive as compared to other schools and that is the reason why I never thought of leaving it. Due to the sudden demise of my father, and my family is now struggling to make ends meet. Hence, I can no longer afford to pay the tuition fee for this school.

I, very humbly request you to please grant me a school leaving certificate, so that I can continue my education elsewhere without any problem. I do hope that you will give your sincere consideration of this matter.

Thanking You

Yours Faithfully,
(Your name),
(Your class),
