Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act (2000) gives you the right to access recorded information held by the School.

If you are interested in accessing information held by the School, your first step should be to look at our publication scheme. This is a guide to the information that the School routinely publishes and includes access to documents such as the School's annual report, financial statements, prospectus and equal opportunities policy. If you need to request further information please read our guide to requesting information.

Refer to the School's Freedom of Information policy (pdf).

What is Freedom of Information?

The Freedom of Information Act (2000) gives the general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities. It came into force in January 2005. This legislation gives you the opportunity to find out what the School does and how we do it, thus making the School more accountable.

How does Freedom of Information work?

Individuals have the right of access to recorded information held by the School, irrespective of its age. Requests must be made in writing (by letter, email or fax) and must be answered, to confirm or deny that information is held and provide it, unless an exemption applies, within 20 working days. A fee may be charged for providing the information.

Publication scheme

The School's publication scheme is a guide to the information that the School routinely publishes. The publication scheme sets out the classes of information published, the manner of publication and details of any charges.

Exemptions and fees

The School is committed to providing access to information. However there are a number of exemptions under which a request for information may be refused. These are:

There are 23 exemptions under which a request for information may be refused. These include data protection, commercial interests, information intended for future publication, information provided in confidence and information accessible to the applicant by other means.

While some exemptions are absolute (e.g. personal information), others may be subject to a public interest test which means that the School must decide whether or not it is in the public interest to release the requested information. Situations in which a public interest test applies include requests for information intended for future publication, health and safety, or commercial interests.

If the requested information has been destroyed, the School must show that it has been destroyed in accordance with good business practice, such as compliance with a records retention schedule.

A request may be refused on the grounds of excessive cost. The Office of the Information Commissioner will soon be providing further information on fees regulations. 

Codes of Practice

There are two codes of practice issued under the Act to control aspects of compliance:

Codes have no statutory force but if an institution does not conform to them, the Information Commissioner can recommend steps to be taken to promote conformity to the codes.

How to make a request

Cookie Policy of Open Audience

This document informs Users about the technologies that help this Website to achieve the purposes described below. Such technologies allow the Owner to access and store information (for example by using a Cookie) or use resources (for example by running a script) on a User’s device as they interact with this Website.

For simplicity, all such technologies are defined as "Trackers" within this document – unless there is a reason to differentiate.

For example, while Cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile apps as they are a browser-based Tracker. For this reason, within this document, the term Cookies is only used where it is specifically meant to indicate that particular type of Tracker.

Some of the purposes for which Trackers are used may also require the User's consent. Whenever consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.

This Website uses Trackers managed directly by the Owner (so-called “first-party” Trackers) and Trackers that enable services provided by a third-party (so-called “third-party” Trackers). Unless otherwise specified within this document, third-party providers may access the Trackers managed by them.

The validity and expiration periods of Cookies and other similar Trackers may vary depending on the lifetime set by the Owner or the relevant provider. Some of them expire upon termination of the User’s browsing session.

In addition to what’s specified in the descriptions within each of the categories below, Users may find more precise and updated information regarding lifetime specification as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Trackers - in the linked privacy policies of the respective third-party providers or by contacting the Owner.

To find more information dedicated to Californian consumers and their privacy rights, Users may read the privacy policy.

Activities strictly necessary for the operation of this Website and delivery of the Service

This Website uses so-called “technical” Cookies and other similar Trackers to carry out activities that are strictly necessary for the operation or delivery of the Service.

Google Analytics

Targeting & Advertising

This Website uses Trackers to deliver personalized marketing content based on User behaviour and to operate, serve and track ads.

Some of the advertising services used by the Owner adhere to the IAB Transparency and Consent Framework, an initiative that facilitates responsible privacy practices across the digital advertising industry - providing Users with enhanced transparency and control over how their data are used for advertising tracking purposes. Users can customize their advertising preferences at any time by accessing the advertising preferences panel from within the cookie notice or via the relevant link on this Website.

This Website participates in the IAB Europe Transparency & Consent Framework and complies with its Specifications and Policies. This Website uses iubenda (identification number 123) as a Consent Management Platform.

How to manage preferences and provide or withdraw consent

There are various ways to manage Tracker related preferences and to provide and withdraw consent, where relevant:

Users can manage preferences related to Trackers from directly within their own device settings, for example, by preventing the use or storage of Trackers.

Additionally, whenever the use of Trackers is based on consent, Users can provide or withdraw such consent by setting their preferences within the cookie notice or by updating such preferences accordingly via the relevant consent-preferences widget, if available.

It is also possible, via relevant browser or device features, to delete previously stored Trackers, including those used to remember the User’s initial consent.

Other Trackers in the browser’s local memory may be cleared by deleting the browsing history.

With regard to any third-party Trackers, Users can manage their preferences and withdraw their consent via the related opt-out link (where provided), by using the means indicated in the third party's privacy policy, or by contacting the third party.

Locating Tracker Settings

Users can, for example, find information about how to manage Cookies in the most commonly used browsers at the following addresses:

Google Chrome

Mozilla Firefox

Apple Safari

Microsoft Internet Explorer

Microsoft Edge

Brave

Opera

Users may also manage certain categories of Trackers used on mobile apps by opting out through relevant device settings, such as the device advertising settings for mobile devices, or tracking settings in general (Users may open the device settings, view and look for the relevant setting).

Advertising industry specific opt-outs

Notwithstanding the above, Users may follow the instructions provided by YourOnlineChoices (EU), the Network Advertising Initiative (US) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (US), DAAC (Canada), DDAI (Japan) or other similar services. Such initiatives allow Users to select their tracking preferences for most of the advertising tools. The Owner thus recommends that Users make use of these resources in addition to the information provided in this document.

The Digital Advertising Alliance offers an application called AppChoices that helps Users to control interest-based advertising on mobile apps.
