Re: Ernest McCall- Maths teacher / housemaster Maine A

thank you so much for your post. definitely worth calling Sussex Police about this if you feel about to do so. Or the NSPCC would assist you in making a report if you preferred. What you say here may be evidence relevant to other enquires which may or may not be ongoing.

Roger Martin - trial

Does anyone know when this trial is taking place please?
Obviously people need to be very cautious in what is said as the proceedings are still clearly ongoing, just looking for a date etc.

Re: Ernest McCall- Maths teacher / housemaster Maine A

I think this thread is in the right place, and I think most people who will recall the reasons for this man's sudden departure will feel the same. If he's still alive I am sure he can provide his own account, and you can't libel the dead.

Re: Sentencing of Garry William Dobbie

Howard I have sometime had a different take to you on some of your posts on this forum but I just wanted to tip a hat to that fulsome and insightful apology.

I am sure we all hope Dobbie gets the very long sentence he so richly deserves.

Does anyone have any "notes from Court"?

As posted elsewhere, I suspect Mr. Rowley may be included
Good point. Both he and Alistair Wilson should be, might write in as clearly at least one of them will remain a member.

Re: A letter from the CHOBA board

A decent enough letter. Who are the six expelled? Husband, Dobbie, Webb, Burr, Karim and ???

Re: All this is incredibly sad

The houses are visited on a random basis by an SLT member on virtually every night of the week. It's reassuring to know that this happens now, but it certainly was not happening as recently as the early-mid 1990's. Poulton visited Maine B once while I was there, the only time I ever spoke to him, a...

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

I do not seem to be making myself clear. This thread (which I started, by the way) is about removing membership from CHOBA members who were involved in child abuse at the school. As far as I am aware, this woman is not a member of CHOBA and was not involved in any way with child abuse at C.H. Yes, ...

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

Passing comments on Mr Sillett is fair enough, but mud-slinging at his daughter is not. This forum is about C.H., Old Blues and the teaching staff. So, whatever this woman has done is of NO concern to us, even if she spent a very short time at C.H. I suggest that a degree of moderation is required....

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

I posted this as Sillett is silent about the decades of abuse at CH, and his continuing positioning of himself as a respectable, establishment figure, with his gong from the palace etc. Tanya Sillett also briefly taught at CH, no doubt offered the position due to being Sillett's daughter.

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

The trial previously heard from an alleged victim who said housemaster Bob Sillett, a senior staff member, implied she would risk being named in the press if the school dealt with Mr Karim "publicly". She said: "There was the implication that my name might be published." I find it hard to believe t...

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

I found Ron a dull geography teacher, but a decent enough fellow. I had Lorimer for geography on my squits - he retired the following year I believe - and my abiding memory is of the racist comments constantly made towards my two black classmates. Jeepers. I suppose they are both meant to be 'forev...
