We use cookies and similar technologies on this website to improve its performance and enhance your user experience. This policy explains how we do that.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are used to recognise your device and usage when you visit a website or page. Cookies help the website (or another website) recognise your device the next time you visit; web beacons and other similar files do the same thing. We use the term ‘cookies’ in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

Cookies serve many functions; they can help a website remember your username and preferences for instance or help the school analyse how our website is performing and recommend content we believe may be most relevant to you. Some cookies may record information such as your username when you click remember me when logging in but for the most part, cookies collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our website.

What sort of cookies does this website use?

Generally, our cookies perform several different functions:

  1. Essential cookies

Essential cookies enable you to move around our website and use its features, for instance when you access a secure area of the website. Without these cookies, the website cannot function correctly and provide you with the necessary services. Essential cookies are deemed ‘strictly necessary’ and are exempt from the regulations which require your consent to place cookies on your device.

  1. Performance Cookies


These cookies allow us to collect information about how visitors use our website, for instance which pages you visit most often, and if any error messages occur. Performance cookies do not record information that identify you; all information is aggregated and anonymous. Performance cookies are only used to improve how a website works. By using this website, you agree we may place these types of cookies on your device, unless you choose to disable them.

  1. Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make such as your username, language or the region you are in and provide enhanced, personalised features. Functional cookies can also be used to remember changes you may make to text size, fonts and other parts of the website you customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies record may be anonymised, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. By using this website, you agree we may place these types of cookies on your device, unless you choose to disable them.
