Re: Letter to the Head Master

Absolutely. Would they dismiss a member of staff today for failing to report abuse, and publicise why they’d been fired? If so, they should be happy to condemn what’s gone before. If not, there’s still a problem today? The difficulty is "can they prove that the staff member knew and failed...."? Ot...

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

I also wonder what the career guidance says about apprenticeships and non-university choices post-CH? I know in my day it was a massive focus and assumption that you’d go to Uni if you could - and it didn’t suit many, or they did courses which didn’t lead to a career....and ended up with debt, even...

Re: CH and flu

I remember a condition of going to CH was that one had to have been vaccinated against smallpox. Quite true Robert. I remember going with Mum to our GP to have yet another vaccination prior to Horsham and still have the marks on my arm to show for it. According to her my mother didn't want me to ha...

Re: Tom Lawson: the interview

This should probably go in a Thread called, "Promises CH made but never completed." Do you really want such a thread? It could become unweildy and run the risk of libel To cut a long story short, it was never returned, and when CHOBA took over from CHC, we were promised a replacement room and £8,00...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

, I wonder if there is a compromise here in what I believe is a system elsewhere in Europe and particularly in Denmark. This is a mainly state-run system of weekly boarding for youngsters in their mid-teens who are just needing to study seriously for exams. The existing public schools and their mag...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

He is getting complacent as he thinks it is nearly over. It might appear that way but he is in a Catch 22 situation. What can he say/write which would satisfy everybody given that it is only now, decades later, that a fuller story comes out of what was happening behind closed doors? He is not the m...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

The apparently different treatment of different schools by different police forces is a bit of a concern. Two years ago one of my daughters received a phone call from Lincolnshire Police asking if she could tell me to get in touch with them - cue much panic! Turned out they were investigating an ab...

Re: CH and flu

I had two inoculations at CH. One was for polio and I think was administered to everyone whose parents consented. It was a jab, not oral, and I remember it because I had a funny turn afterwards and had to lie down on a sicker bed for an hour or so. The other was a smallpox vaccination. This was jus...

Re: Did monitors have any real use?

By the time scrub and I were there there was no "swabbing" system, just older boys telling us to make them toast or write their essay or get something from the tuck shop or just taking from our own food supply , "or else...", as scrub said. And the "or else" party was often put into practice. As tr...

It may be, under GDPR regulations, that you've not agreed to receive emails from CH?!

Since they haven't asked me for approval (as every other tom, dick and harry has), am I supposed to send messages to everyone I can find with Google?
OK a bit tongue in cheek but the point is made

Re: Who Knew What?

Whilst I accept TMF's suggestion (and this might be too late) why hs the school not found experts who could try to help the victim's mental states as the are victims are identified? Rob has graphically enumerated the results of what the school allowed to happen so they should do everything posible t...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

Although Dick T has shown that CH is not alone I also find the statement in February 2018 The government declined to give an interview but said that in 2016 they held a public consultation about whether it should be introduced, and they will publish its findings in due course. disturbing and it look...

Re: Did monitors have any real use?

(On the subject of monitors priveleges) . In my last year, evenings up to about 11pm was homework, 6am to 7am was homework, weekends were usually homework full. The thread about Dr Ken Little caused me to read up on Rick Slater where I found this moving piece by Gabrielle Fisher which summarises th...

Re: Will Dobbie be defrocked?

All sounds good but the police are being run on a shoestring so I'm not convinced they'll monitor him effectively, given many actual crimes are now being parked as too difficult to investigate. Too true but are they in cahoorts with the insurance industry? Our police will no longer register a house...

People don't always abide by the law of the land. The church is about forgiveness and once the sentence has been served is the slate clean? DBS checks should now show up his conviction but people can be manipulative and not accepting of reality. A question for Richard. My understanding is that (wit...
