Hi, I probably shouldn't be posting because I'm deeply hungover but I'm going to anyway. Free Thinker. Hi. How're you doing? I think I got a bit stuck in the quagmire of Concerned Parent's two postings, responding to the flak of his/her blunderbus scatter-gun approach to making a point. Late Friday ...

Dear Concerned parent, I agree with much of what you say but I think you’ve created a bit of a straw-man on the whole. Firstly, the generic “you all” to describe those who have a negative attitude to the SES and St James is wholly inappropriate to a discussion like this. Unfortunately, it is t...

Sam, Good to hear from you. Hope you're doing well at Reading. Things probably have improved but I take your silence on the substance of my post as a formal admission of its accuracy. I'm not trying to pick a fight but I won't be filibustered away by lazy rhetoric and reactionary hysteria. I'm just ...

Hi Rachel, I've been researching St James and the SES for some time now. My mum and dad were utterly enmeshed in the philosophy school and I was sent to the day school. I'm beginning to understand the causes of some of my experiences at St James and time after time the threads lead to the London SES...

Write the script

Why doesn't someone write a script? Trawl the boards, invite whistle-blowers, talk to members past and present - the more antagonistic the better - and, hey presto, some great TV. Sensationalise it a bit with some contemporary social relevance - the dangers of eccentric Faith Schools sneaking past t...

Cheers Justice,

Hello all, As I said in my posting regarding Julian Capper, the SES exerted significant influence on the continuous process of generating the academic and cultural ethos of St James during my time there. 1986 - 2000. The evidence in support of this claim is overwhelming and incontrovertible. I recog...

I was at St. James for the whole of my school career (1986ff.) and was taught Latin by Julian Capper for six years (c.1995ff) including A-Level. During the final two he also supervised me in his capacity as head of the sixth form. He was always fair, professional, and dignified. As you have probably...

physiological + psychological

Dear Ross, Being the polymath that you obviously are, you will no doubt be aware of that seminal work "The Second Sex", Simone deBeauvoir (1949). Would you say that "indisputable differences" between the sexes arise either from fundamental physiological or or from psychological differences? Or are t...

forgot to ask the question.

oops. Forgot to ask the question i had in the first place. DID ANYONE IN THE SES ASK ANY FORMER PUPIL TO SUBMIT TO THE INQUIRY AN EXCLUSIVELY POSITIVE ACCOUNT OF THEIR TIME AT ST. JAMES? IF SO, DID ANYONE AGREE TO SUCH A REQUEST? While we're at it... WAS DAVID BODDY APPOINTED HEADMASTER OF ST. JAMES...

Direct questions

Dear All, I have created this thread so that members may compile a catalogue of simple questions to those of the SES and St. James who have come under scrutiny on these pages and elsewhere. The powerful and very necessary testimonies found on these pages has raised such momentum that real answers ma...
