Data Protection update - change of school name

Please can we draw your attention to, the school formally known as The Bushey Academy has changed its name to The Grange Academy, in addition the school number has also changed to 700. There are now 2 schools in Hertfordshire with the same name;

The Grange Academy (Bushey)

Grange Academy ( Letchworth)

To ensure information is not sent from HCC/CS staff to the incorrect school – their geographical location has been added to the school address book to help ensure the correct school details are used , the change in school number has also been amended.

If you have previously emailed the school or have either saved in your personal HCC address book or on databases the change will not automatically be reflected so ask you to ensure that you remove any old email addresses and replace with the correct email and exercise caution when emailing them to ensure you have selected the appropriate school. The link to the Schools address book entry for both schools is detailed below
