Re: Congratulations to this year's Grecians and their new Headmaster

Yamaha, have you a link to the ISC list? You still seem to think that CH achieved a pass rate of 53%, they achieved far higher than that. Please look at https://www.christs-hospital.org.uk/school-life/school-news/excellent-a-level-results-for-christs-hospital-pupils/ where it says the average grades...

Re: Congratulations to this year's Grecians and their new Headmaster

Surely 53% A and A* does not equate to a pass rate of 53%?

Re: Should there be a separate sub-forum for the “historic abuse” threads?

It may have bordered on abuse, but it was all of us, nobody was singled out for squizzing. I can't remember it happening when I was a Senior but that may be just that I had become inured to it, it just happened. I didn't become a rebel until after I had left school!

Re: Should there be a separate sub-forum for the “historic abuse” threads?

I was not aware of any sexual abuse in my time, but sadistic abuse certainly. There have been several stories told on this forum when the Hertford section was active. As to anything more, it may have happened, posters here who were in the same houses at Horsham at the same time as the known victims ...

Re: Help the newbie!

Re: Help the newbie!

Puffinsplace (sounds like shades of Lundy Island!) Seems to me that the ladies would be better equipped to help you and most have decamped to their site within the glories of Facebook. As a mere male I keep clear of femininity but I would suggest that you try to find the ladies' Facebook page. Perh...

Re: Help the newbie!

Hi Welcome to the forum. I’m afraid the parents section has gone very quiet in recent years, so I can’t guarantee a current, or recent, parent will be along to answer your questions. Many years ago, when I started I had a non standard swimsuit and suffered a lot of teasing and almost abuse from fell...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

I think but won't swear to it, the posts of Headmaster and Clerk have been combined in the last few years, which means there's one person less who could advise Simon Reid of the correct action to take now.

Re: Letter to the Head Master

Julian has. It absolutely right, it should be relatively easy for the school to do. I was amazed the other day, someone here mentioned that he had received the CHOBA Newsletter that day, I queried why I hadn’t with Gina Skillings, her email reply told me that not only had I received it, but I had op...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

As far as I understood, and I hope to be corrected, that it could be included but hasn't yet been focussed on in the wat Ampleforth and Downside have. This morning there was a fleeting reference to Protestant schools, not just RC ones.
