Re: Did anyone know?

Following on the alcohol thread - I remember the Grecians club - it was good, restrained and taught very unworldly boys (well some at least) how to handle drink. On my D of E bronze McCall and another bought us 6 large cans of dark ale - high percentage - these wre old fashioned so I think 3/4 of a ...

An Appeal

Dear All In 2000 a victim came forward and made an official complaint to Horsham police concerning a master. He was told to go away or as I would prefer to say F... O.. ! In December 2016 he came forward again but this time used the BBC. His evidence was held on file but no prosecution was made. It ...

Re: IICSA UPDATE

I have responded to HH on a PM.

I'll give him the generosity of allowing him to ponder my response over the weekend and then be able to reply to me if he so wishes.

Cheers

Rob

Re: IICSA UPDATE

Dear All I am applying to be a Core Participant This would bring CH into the lime light but I am not holding my breath. However I want to clarify something: The police have been able to charge 6 teachers over the period from 1969 to 2001. However, information provided suggests that activities of liv...

Re: Did anyone know?

Eer I know feelings run high on this. Many at CH (Boys or Girls) did not know what was going on - they are not to feel any blame - other than that for some they were clearly looking through Nelson's second eye. It happened - deal with it. You may have been there when it happened - deal with it. The ...

IICSA UPDATE

Dear All I can confirm that CH will NOT be included in Phase II of the inquiry. No public school is. They have chosen quite small schools not all of which are independent of the state system. There is no right of appeal. The only legal aspect is to challenge the inquiry but it is not possible as the...

Re: New Victim comes forward

Hi Chaps Interesting two days - I will come back to you. I am meeting with a victim today so need space. However I will say the school (Hi Business manager reading this and thanks for the last two days) is really interacting with the idea of reconciliation. This is good - they need to. Rob - oh by t...

Re: New Victim comes forward

Actually a cup of tea and a biscuit is better than nothing! The meeting will now be without prejudice so no legal inference can be applied. BUT what is the point? I am starting to think I am wasting my time and life (what little is left) on this. We can't agree on an agenda; we can't agree on a loca...

Re: New Victim comes forward

I can confirm that a further investigation is taking place by the police re a master at CH. The master has already been tried for another/other cases. It is NOT Peter Burr. It is a single victim. The editorial dept. and the legal dept. at The Times are meeting today to see if they feel able to relea...

Re: New Victim comes forward

I'll let you know more tomorrow - but the person has come forward to the police. The school is simply irrelevant.

New Victim comes forward

Dear All I will not be flavour of the month but a further victim of sexual abuse at CH has come forward. This once again may stop any press on the matter of CH. I have deep reservations on this. But it is what it is. I know no details - who the accused is or when. I suggest that you do not speculate...

Re: IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Absolutely right - but it will bring past wrong doings into the lime light!
