We use analytical cookies to allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
We use Google Analytics to measure how you are interacting with the site to ensure that we help you get the best out of our site.

Web pages don't have any 'memory' as such and functionality cookies allow us to store information about your activities on our site. This information is automatically removed from our web server once your browser is closed, therefore, each time you visit our site you will be treated as a 'new' visitor.
We want to keep track of your movements across our site and link your actions to ensure that the same information is not asked from you every time you move from one page to the next.
We use a functionality cookie so that we can track the people that log in to the various areas of our site; whether you are logging into the teachers’ area or logging into your account. The only information stored on the user's computer is a session ID which composes of alphanumeric characters. This allows our site to identify you when logging into your account and until you log out or your browser is closed. Therefore, you don't need to keep re-entering the same information.
