1. To quash vicious scurrilous speculation as to my reasons for leaving CH, which were contemptible and deeply offensive;
2. To put on record my own estimation of Roger Martin, who did wrong, I now know, which is horribly sad; but did a vast amount of good to so many also.
I thank those few who have stood up in this forum to acknowledge my honesty and to defend me against the sustained attacks of the self-righteous. It was good to find a just bit of decency and understanding hanging on in there.
Please stay on the forum. It is helpful to have the perspective of a teacher from CH in the 1970s in particular.
I was going to ask if at the time of the incident there was ever any concern on your part that the Police would be called (this would obviously happen today) i.e. from the Doctor, Headmaster etc.
Also, when you mentioned that boys pinned a note to your bedroom door, were staff bedrooms accessible to pupils/boys? Where were they. In my time there was a notion that Clive Kemp had a study/bedroom in a boarding house but all other teaching staff had a house/flat in the grounds or elsewhere. M
It would be a valuable insight to continue to have your comments.
