Re: I'M BACK !!

So glad you're ok, sorry to hear, but prompt action sounds like it made the difference!

Welcome back!

Re: Oh dear..here we go again.

Typical lazy journalism, and I doubt any correction to them would have made a jot of difference after publication.

Re: Oh dear..here we go again.

Revenge porn can obviously happen in both directions, and both boys and girls should be far more cautious than they seem to be today. The sex of the person sharing the photo is irrelevant, and both boys and girls are more than capable these days of sharing explicit photos - and also capable of embar...

Re: Allegations of abuse in today's news

Given there's an ongoing police inquiry, and that there's been inappropriate posts which (before being moderated) directly and indirectly tried to suggest names of those involved without evidence, solid information, or any fair right of reply, I'm now locking this topic to further posts. We will all...

Re: Allegations of abuse in today's news

uh oh the Oprichnik have moderated my posts again. Why cant I name the headmaster/deputy head and people in charge of CH during the 90s? I don't see why it is controversial to name the headmaster. I didn't accuse them of abuse, I just said that they failed in their duty to protect children during t...

Thanks for flagging a potential connection - I've therefore removed the other link.

Re: Allegations of abuse in today's news

Glad you're not in the business of naming, but the link needed removed as it alluded potentially to one of the potential suspects - thus removed, and that's the end of it. By all means keep talking about memories and opinions of boarding - I too had a very mixed time at CH for sure, and have read so...

Re: Allegations of abuse in today's news

I've moderated one of the links, as I've received some messages saying there are some suggestions that the link posted related indirectly to CH, and as previously stated this isn't the place for gossip or speculation please. Let's let the police investigation deal with it, and I'd again encourage an...

Re: Allegations of abuse in today's news

I'm letting this run for now, but please avoid naming people, whether opinion or for any other reason. I am loath to moderate this topic excessively or lock this topic, but will do so if I have to. I'd also like remind everyone of the Acceptable Use Policy, and that this isn't the place for speculat...

Re: Allegations of abuse in today's news

Yes, agree with J.R. I don't feel this, nor other social media, is the place for comment on this, particularly as it's an ongoing investigation and we don't want any risk of jeopardising any enquiries, or similarly speculating about who might or might not be involved. Anyone affected by this news, o...

Anyone know an Old Blue with Social Media experience?

The CHOBA Board has had a good response to some other vacancies to support CH by volunteering, but are still struggling to find someone with specific Social Media skills, details as below. If you know any Old Blues who might fit this role, and could be persuaded to commit a little to help, this coul...

Re: PETITION: Is 26% Full-Fee Paying Pupils Too High?

There's been some great success from the 1552 Petition, and it's definitely opened some dialog with the Counting House and the School. It's influenced the powers-that-be that there's a shared ideal of reducing FFPs, and we should now have a chance to input effectively into the next Business Plan. Th...

Re: PETITION: Is 26% Full-Fee Paying Pupils Too High?

I suggest this would be counter-productive, as there are some good conversations still going on. It's a massive challenge for CH to reduce the number of FFPs,unless there's a massive injection cash, either annually or as a massive lump-sum into the endowment (approx. £100m!). It's crucial that that ...

Re: PETITION: Is 26% Full-Fee Paying Pupils Too High?

Unfortunately not - but I'd welcome any factual data sources which are public and available, as I'd love to be able to show the benefit and positive consequences of the FFPs, to therefore show the size of the hole which fundraising/cost savings would have to fill in order to reduce the number of FFPs.
