Who we are

Our website address is: http://www.uetrust.org.

United Endeavour Trust is the data controller of the personal information you provide to us. This means the trust determines the purposes for which, and the manner in which, any personal data relating to pupils and their families or website visitors is to be processed. Mr John Dooley acts as a representative for the Trust with regard to its data controller responsibilities; he can be contacted on 01782 973000 or john.dooley@uetrust.org.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

We currently do not allow the publishing of comments, and therefore this data will not be published in the public domain.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Information posted via our contact forms are collected by the trust office, or respective officer at the academy office depending on their requirements.   The response address is copied via email and stored on our website systems to enable audit trail and the ability to respond to the request.
