Cookies

We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We may send a cookie which may be stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website's usability and for marketing purposes. We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our website, and to personalise our website for you. If you choose to refuse our cookies, you may not be able to use all the website elements.

We may use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users’ computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google’s privacy policy is available at: http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html.

Requesting a prospectus

The Admissions section on this website offers the option to request a prospectus.

This service is provided to enable you to request us to either email you a PDF copy or send a hard copy via the postal system.

If you choose to use this service, then you agree to the collection and use of the information provided in relation with this policy. The Personal Information we collect will only be used to enable us to send you the information requested and to follow up your enquiry. We will not use or share this information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

Information collection and use

In order for you to use this service, we will require you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information, including but not limited to your name, postal address, email address and phone number. In addition, to help us to send you the appropriate information, we also ask for your child’s name, gender, date of birth and current school. All the information we collect will only be used in relation to contacting or identifying you and providing the service at your request.

In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may disclose information about you:
