We hold only your first and last names, email address, town, county (or state) and country of residence, the years you attended CVTHS and in some cases your web address. This information that you have given us to publish is purely for the interest of other ‘old boys’ and to give them a means of getting in touch without having to ask the administration for details. We also only collect and hold this minimal information for the purposes or remaining in contact with you.
Personal information is not shared outside of CVTHS for any purposes whatsoever. Contact information will never be passed to a third party on their request but your permission sought first.

We have no intention of sharing any personal information at any point in the future with any third parties.
2) Rights of access, rectification, erasure

If you have any concerns about how your personal information is used, please contact us.
The policy statement can be found here on our website.

Your help on this


We are not lawyers and this statement may not cover all the bases but we would just like to reassure all of our old boys that the website and blog exist purely as a means of old boys keeping in touch whilst continually creating a historical online record of the Cray Valley Technical High School. We do not sell on or otherwise allow third party access to any data we may hold.
If there are any ‘old boy’ lawyers out there who could be of assistance with these new regulations then we would be very grateful for your input!

About Colin Cadle

I trained as a pilot at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell flying jets and qualified as a captain on Wessex search and rescue helicopters in the Gulf. However, my professional future was destined to be firmly back on the ground... In 1976 a chance introduction to Julie Andrews' husband film producer Blake Edwards really kicked off my interest in photography after he invited me onto the set of the Peter Sellers' now classic film 'The Pink Panther Strikes Again' at Shepperton Studios. Stills photographer David Farrell further fired my enthusiasm when, during a break in filming, I was offered a short photo shoot with leading fashion model and 'Bond girl' actress Maud Adams. From that moment on art and photography have always played a major part in my life. I now live in the beautiful southwest corner of England with​ my designer and photo-stylist wife Jan. Following a serious illness in 2016 we were forced to leave commercial photography behind us but this now allows me to concentrate solely on creating art from my studio in Devon

    Sorry Colin – yes I’m an old boy but no – although I did a lot of legal case papers and visited Chambers on quite a few occasions I was not a lawyer! Mainly writing this so you know I’m still alive!

      Hi Tony, I hope all is well with you. Thank you for pointing that out. We did have an immediate response form​ a very kind ‘old boy’ who basically (and very unofficially of course) gave it the thumbs up. So hopefully what we have out in place is sufficient.
