  • The Big Build
    The Big Build

    We would like to thank everyone in the school and local community for their patience and support during our extended period of building work.   The new Sixth Form Centre with its separate entrance atrium, ICT suite, lecture theatre and common room is now in use along with the new classroom bases, one of which is our Healthy Living studio.   As the first stage of the Big Build draws to a close, from the Healthy Pupils Capital Fund we have been awarded funding to improve our swimming pool facilities – this project will include an extended 25m indoor swimming pool with changing rooms.  We are also tremendously fortunate, through our own fundraising and the generous support of parents and the PTFA, to be able to provide an additional, and much needed multi-functional hall which will incorporate the new swimming pool.  We are absolutely delighted that our students will be rewarded with first class facilities to match their outstanding achievements.

What is Personal Information?

How we limit the use of personal information

Where necessary CCHSG PTFA might process the personal data that you supply to enable us to contact you about relevant events and activities.   We do not sell personal data to any other organisation for the purposes of selling products. 

Your privacy rights

Who will we share your personal information with?  

We do not share information with other companies or partners unless you have specifically given us permission to do so (e.g. supplying list of addresses to William H Brown for installation of advertising boards).

How do we protect your information? 

We will do what we can to make sure we hold personal records (on paper and electronically) in a secure way, and we will only make them available to those who have a good reason to see them.  Our security includes:

  • Storing data securely stored on password protected devices.  Any paper copies of data required temporarily for event registers etc. is destroyed as soon as it is no longer required.
  • Controlling access to systems and networks allows us to stop people who are not allowed to view your personal information from getting access to it.
