Contact Us form
 
The information you provide in the Contact Us form is collected via a secure link and then sent via e-mail to the Administration staff, who then forward on the e-mail to the most appropriate member of staff. This information is not stored once the e-mail has been dealt with.

The Alumni System is a way for our former students to let us know how they have progressed since leaving TBSHS. The provision of all information is voluntary, and we reserve the right to use this information to develop a summary of the destinations of our students. The information is stored on our secure server until it is used. This information will also be used to contact former students of Alumni events.
