This section was setup in August 2018 in order to move the existing related discussions from other sections into this new section to group them together, and separate from the other CH-related topics.

Approaching the BBC (EDIT: This was meant to say BSB) sounds a very good idea to me.

It would be very interesting to know their reaction given the subject for the request.

Softlee softlee catchee monkey. I would start to involve the BBC, ITV etc. only if we suspect that the school is dragging it's feet; going in with all guns blazing is likely to have them bring up the barriers and make life even more difficult.

I meant B S B. Not BBC.

Bl**dy predictive text.

On the other hand, though..... (Thinks...)

Richard - over two years ago now - did you ever receive a reply to this letter?

Any update on this letter? I don't know how I missed it back in 2018 but it is the kind of letter I have been keen to write for some time, especially the points about Webb's dismissal and Baker's letter.

Today's "message from the Head Teacher" concludes:
In the immediate future, and in the specific context of the ‘Everyone’s Invited’ awareness-raising campaign, the School is aware that Old Blues may have issues that they wish to address relating to their time at CH. Anyone who would like to have a conversation should be in touch. With this in mind, please do contact the School by emailing hmsec@christs-hospital.org.uk. We are here to support you.

The Head Teacher cannot not be aware of the estimate of 100 Old Blues in that category most of whom have not "come out". Given that fact how can they write Old Blues MAY have issues . Given the apparent outcome of discussions to date I have to wonder at the ultimate phrase.
