Re: Letter to the Head Master

Absolutely. Would they dismiss a member of staff today for failing to report abuse, and publicise why they’d been fired? If so, they should be happy to condemn what’s gone before. If not, there’s still a problem today?

Re: Letter to the Head Master

What is it about organisation that they choose to hide abuse or controversy, in the hope it'll never come out? They fail to realise that, particularly in these days of social media, it WILL come out - so they'd be far better to immediately publicise the case, push hard for all information to come ou...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

I think some (but not all) teachers can have a tough time getting used to their ex-students being adults, and becoming their equals, or even their superiors in terms of life experience, education, authority or position. We are all still the kids they knew when we were under their authority, and it’s...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

Further, I think the school should be more explicit that they WANT all of this to come out NOW, and COMPLETELY - therefore ENCOURAGING people to come forward with whatever info they have. This can only be a benefit to the victims, the school, the Old Blues and the reputation of the school itself. Ha...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

A personally addressed (a quick mail merge) letter to every OB they have details of, explaining that certain staff are under investigation (whether named or not) with the years which are currently being looked at, and maybe highlighting how many pupils have already come forward (hopefully encouragin...

Re: A WAY AHEAD?

Listened to the Vanessa Feltz report, from BBC London, Wed 11 July 2018. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06b5d8c 00:08:15 - interview with Arthur, one of the abuse victims. "Tried to contact the police and the school, but no one had taken him seriously" "Complaints came from 22 former students" 1:...

Re: Roger Martin

Just a reminder to all that “innocent until proven guilty” and that just because there was clearly a large cohort of abusing teachers, does not mean at all that all who are accused are guilty - so no speculation please, factual content only. I’m not saying it’s the case here, but there is a risk too...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

We’re determined to keep it going, with the sensible cooperation of all the members posting intelligently and empathetically towards the victims, and staying on the right side of the few rules we have - that makes it soooo much easier for us.

Re: Dobbie's departure

I agree, and i think that's part of the assurance needed from the school; -have the police been notified of all teachers who were moved on from the school in response to abuse allegations? This is the single biggest question which they should answer now, to reassure Old Blues and others of their PR...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

Just for the record: I would be vehemently against any concerted action concerned with alleged misbehaviour by members of staff now dead. The obvious reason is that they cannot now defend themselves, and, the corollary, the accusers would not be required to get their evidence together properly (if ...

Re: Will Dobbie be defrocked?

I wonder what the French will feel about letting him to back to "Albi" his current registered address I believe?
Particularly after Brexit, depending on what their immigration rules about sex-offenders entering the country?
