well...allegedly....without prejudice...single middle aged man....young boys...made page 3 (??) of The Sun with a headline 'Goodbye Mr Chips'. Not sure we ever found out who leaked the story.
Yes this was during my time as SG. Pretty tricky affair for Baker to deal with and a "dark" episode in the middle 80s.
House was Barnes A right?

Yes of course Barnes B and the name is mentioned in a post here I see.

I remember being caught up with it and Baker asking me to find out where the "leak" came from...
Tricky story allround...Was Steve Eason also tutor in BaB at the time?

I left Summer 84 so the reconversions must have been after that..

It was 1983/4, our first year in Mid B after leaving Barnes B. Don't even rememebr the name Steve Eason so don't think he was there. The tutor was (I think) Mr Boyle though he may have joined a year later.

I seem to rememebr the leak be attributed to Mid A or Thorn A...

Steve Eason (French Teacher) did occasional House prep in in BaB on our 2nd Form Adam - usually the nights when we had some Deps actually in the dayroom watching over us (Mondays IIRC)

When we went over to Mid B I think we had Peter W as Housemaster, Roger S as AHM, but I am not sure Sean O'Boyle joined until our LE - BTW noticed his name in the recent 'Old Blue' as the Masters Captain in the OB Golf Society.

The name does ring a bell now you mention french teacher.

Did think O'Boyle was a year later. He once gave me a detnetion for looking out the window in his maths class as a helicopter was landing on big side, i mean A HELICOPTER, how could I not look!

There was also another Gripper at CH in the 80s and this was a History teacher called Davies who went on afterwards to Cranleigh (bad boy!)

But his grips were not as impressive as Roger's....

We were so caught up with the word "Grip" in the 80s that we used to aways get excited when the credits of shows were running through and you would ofetn see "1st grip" etc etc. never really kenw what theses Grippers did ...perhaps holding the camera?
