Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

So would Gloucestershire Police be able to say whether Christ's Hospital or an individual connected had written a letter of support for Ball?

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

I watched both programmes last night. 2) Whether CH was one of the schools who sent a character reference/letter of support? A brief glimpse of a letter from Cranleigh appears at 53.00 minutes in episode 1. I'm wondering if Gloucestershire Police would disclose this sort of information if you reque...

There's an obituary here in the BMJ but as I'm not a subscriber I can't see it properly.

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

I watched both programmes last night.

I'd be interested to know:

1) Who was the contact who first invited or enabled an invitation to be made to Ball for him to become involved at CH?

2) Whether CH was one of the schools who sent a character reference/letter of support?

Thanks, Mid A 15. I've linked the thread onto the 1990s Leavers group and the CH Support Group. There are Hertford 'girls' on there.

Re: Dr Jory

Hi all, I wonder if any former CH'ers are able to recall Dr Jory at all? If you are able to recall him at CH can you please email me on Charles.derham@verisonalaw.com Many thanks Charles Dr Jory was still at Hertford in 1983-84, two years before the merger. Is there any way of publicising this amon...

Re: RIP James Herbertson

He was on my year and I knew him a little, we spent an afternoon in Arundel during a holiday once. To have another from our cohort dying by suicide is just awful. I've been thinking of him every day since I heard the news of his death.

Re: Dates of birth of convicted abusers

I wonder if the school stipulated in its own rules anything about pupil/teacher relationships at any point from living memory onwards? And whether that changed when it became co-ed? Of course, whether it's law or not, a person's own ethical compass 'ought' to come into play. My husband teaches at un...

Re: Dates of birth of convicted abusers

So were Dobbie and Husband actually connected together as part of the case? I'm not trying to belittle the offences nor the damage done to the victims in any way. Being half a world away makes it difficult to understand what's fact and what's conjecture. Thanks, Max richardb has the legal know-how ...

Re: Dates of birth of convicted abusers

I hope they survive prison. I also hope that eventually they come to some sort of realisation of the trauma they have caused their victims, and the hurt they have caused the wider relationships around the victims, their own families and friends. That work is painful and difficult and time-consuming...
