Re: Relationships - Grecian / UF

I was starting my UF when the merger happened. It was quite usual for UF/GE girls to have a relationship with Grecians - in general terms girls are a bit more mature than boys of a similar teenage and on a specific basis initially there were 3 times as many hormonal teenage boys looking for relatio...

Re: Old Blue Clearout

Trying to remember whose mini (Gunning's ?) was placed sideways in the cloister archway whilst we there. I also still have a photo of the last morning of term on my deps (88?) when the year above had made a house of cards from toilet doors in the quad along with setting up a couple of classrooms (d...

Re: Relationships - Grecian / UF

Stopped? Yep, unless school policy has changed you both got your marching orders. As for allowed? Well, as said above, it's a grey area. Unless you're advocating a totalitarian regime, best option IMO is ensure there is open access to information and education on sexual health, consent, and sexuali...

Re: What were your thoughts about the theatre?

It was a great palce. i was at CH from 1978-1984 and perhaps witnessed the wonder years of Duncan Noel-Patton productions. I even acted in 3 myself. It was indeed a massive stage and depsite the awful red benches and red surroundings, the quality of the performances on stage soon put to rest any po...

Re: What were your thoughts about the theatre?

Does the Prep Hall still get used for productions of any kind? By the time I was at CH (1992), the prep hall had been converted into two classrooms (mr Stannard - RE and Mr Fleming (archaeology). When they started renovating the boarding houses (2001-2010?), the prep block was used as a ‘decant’ bo...

Re: What were your thoughts about the theatre?

The seating was awful when I was first at the school in the early 90s - it was replaced with much more comfortable seating in around 96 I think. The ‘moveable’ galleries at the back of the stage were fixed down due to health and safety but they have sorted them out now so they move pneumatically I t...

To me that looked like the CH site so I asked them why OBs are blocked from reading the statement
I think it’s their website that I’ve never liked the design of that seems to hide the link you are trying to find!

Why does Eton make headlines for this:-
Eton College to offer 12 free sixth form places https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-48902808
when CH has been doing WAY more than this for years?
Maybe it’s because Eton is on a massive pr exercise as they are worried about the next PM?

I joined aged 10 in 1985....so there are often some who are very young for their year. I skipped a year of primary school..... so maybe the victim did the same?
Yes, that makes sense; there were a couple on my year too

Re: Roger Martin - trial

I am very saddened by this. Martin never taught me and retired soon after I started at ch but he was always well regarded; I wonder if this is the tip of the iceberg with him though. Just a brief query; the boy he abused was 10 - but there weren’t any 10 year olds at CH surely at that time, the prep...
