Contact Permission and Data Protection Consent

Sedbergh School Leavers of 2020

There are many advantages of staying in touch with the School, the Old Sedberghian Club and the Sedbergh School Foundation as you move on to university and into careers. As well as the opportunity to keep in touch with your friends, there are events held throughout the world for Old Sedberghians to meet and opportunities to get work experience, advice, internships and jobs.

Over the next couple of weeks, you will receive an email (via your school email address) with information including a Data Protection Consent Form. Please complete and sign this form electronically at your earliest convenience in order to receive future communications from the OS Club and Sedbergh School Foundation.

Providing us with your contact information will enable us to contact you with relevant communications after you leave Sedbergh. It will also enable us to keep your data on the School database which is also used by Sedbergh School Developments Ltd, and Sedbergh School Foundation so that you do not miss out on any of the many opportunities that we can provide.

Your personal data will be held by the School and we will comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998. It is very important that you update us of any changes of contact details by emailing [email protected] or [email protected].

Your personal information will be held on the Sedbergh School database in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
