Policies and documents

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation which replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive. It determines how people's personal data is processed and kept safe, and also affects the legal rights of individuals with regards to their own data. 

To ensure we remain compliant with data protection law, we have updated a number of our policies and procedures and added some new ones. These include the Data Subject Access Request policy and Data Subject Access Request form, which you would need to complete when requesting copies of your own, or your child’s personal data. The form can be accessed and printed from the Data Subject Access Request link below. 

We’ve also devised a privacy notice for parents, students, and staff to ensure the procedures of our data collection and processing activities are transparent and demonstrate how we respect the data protection rights of individuals. These documents can be accessed from the links below. 

You should have received a form requesting your consent for us to take photographs of your child. Photographs of students may be used in the school’s prospectus, website, on display boards around the school or in press releases. If you have not received a consent form, please contact Student Services urgently. Unless we receive consent from you, we will not use your son or daughter’s photograph in any publication. 

If you wish to discuss any element of the General Data Protection Regulation or would like advice, please contact This email address is monitored by the Data Protection Officer, Tina Sparrow.  For general information about the GDPR please go to:
