The reason for drawing this to your attention is that the article is illustrated by a four column-wide (i,e, very large) photo of eight C.H. Grecians sitting - somewhat elegantly, it has to be admitted - on one of the stone benches in front of Dining Hall. The caption states: "Private education has changed radically; boys at Christ's Hospital school circa 1970."
There is no mention in the lengthy review of C.H. so why this pic should have been chosen is a mystery. I would also add that while C.H. is indubitably a 'public school' it is by no means a typical one.
Can anyone shed any light on this, please?

CH, as we know, was not immune. These schools were a magnet for paedophiles who got their kicks from an activity that would not lose them their jobs.
