    I need to write a letter to school for my school certificate.

    I need a school certificate in a form of paper,
    which proves that I have graduated grade 10 from this particular school.
    I need this sort of certificate but the school said that they can provide the
    one that is like a report card.
    But what I need is a 'certificate' which has mentioned just the fact that
    I have been in the school, and have graduated grade 10 in this particular school.
    Teacher said that I have to write a request letter to get it,
    and if I do, school will consider providing it.
    I have my friend's which is similar to the format of what I want,
    so I'll just copy the general format of how it is written below.

    "This is to certify that the above-mentioned person successfully graduated class 10 in
    this particular school from 2012..."

    If there is any Grammar mistake in above sentence, please amend it for me.
    And now, I have to write a letter that I want my certificate to start with the sentence
    like this... And... I have no idea...
    Could you please help me out?
    Do I start with 'Respected Sir...' ?

    Do I start with 'Respected Sir...' ?
    Local custom will dictate how you start your letter. In the UK, we would not start a letter with "Respected Sir". We start with "Dear Sir", "Dear Madam", "Dear Sir/Madam" or "Dear Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms + Surname".

    You know by now that we don't do your work for you. If you try to write the letter yourself and post it here, then we will comment on it. Please see my amendments in red to your post.

    Re: I need to write a letter to school for my school certificate.

    Dear sir,


    This is Elena Reyes a student of this school.
    I would like to request you for a certificate
    which proves that I have finished grade 10 in this school.
    It is required for my further study, so please provide
    it to me as soon as possible.
    I would like my certificate to be mentioned the
    fact that I have attended grade 10 one year fully along with my
    friends, and that I have graduated grade 10 from this school.
    Since you are not familiar to this sort of certificates,
    I attach a similar certificate of my friend.
    Please refer to it and consider my request.


    Thank You
    Elena Reyes.

    How about this?
    Do you think I should mention what year I attended the class?
    Is 'Please provide it to me...' better than 'I'd be happy if you provide it...'?

    It The certificate is required for by my institute of further study education, so please provide it to me as soon as possible.

    I would like my certificate to be mentioned the fact that I have attended grade 10 one year fully along with my friends, and that I have graduated grade 10 from this school. Unnecessary. You said this in paragraph 2, and there is no point asking them to confirm that you attended the school with a group of your friends!

    Since In case you are not familiar to with this sort of certificates certificate, I attach a similar certificate of my friend which was obtained by one of my friends.

    Please refer to it and consider my request. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank You Yours faithfully

    Elena Reyes.

    How about this?
    Do you think I should mention what year I attended the class? Yes
    Is 'Please provide it to me...' better than 'I'd be happy if you provide it...'? Yes

    Re: I need to write a letter to school for my school certificate.

    Thank you!
    But is it awkward if I say 'I have finished grade 10'?
    Does it have to be 'I finished grade 10'?
