The Report

That's certainly an interesting read. I can see why it was suppressed when it was published, it's a shame that it wasn't used constructively. It seems to me to be a painfully honest, realistic and very factual picture. It brings to light issues of manipulation not only of the management of the schoo...

Birds and bees

Then there are rumblings about sex education and girls. Here I would like to thank the course which Mrs Hyde has evolved for giving a reasonable and enlightened view which has allowed the girls to evolve a moral code and space above all not to feel coerced into relationships which they haven't thou...

I've also spoken to some people (with ties to Ses and St. James) who have been keeping up to date with the site. They seem to be just watching with interest rather than wishing to get involved- they don't seem to know what to think, they're just prepared to gossip about the fact that it exists. It m...

Re: Foundation Group: Attack of the Clones

When I was at St James in the mid-eighties, we were all summoned to Sarum Chase (I think) for what we were told was an exceptionally important meeting. We were led into a large, impressive room where chairs were laid out in a semi-circle. They faced three chairs in the centre. We all sat down and w...

Occurs to me that pupils from the later schools have absolutely not the faintest idea of life in the first years of St James. You are most correct. The closest the most recent pupils have ever gotten to know about the histroy of St James is from this message board. Not quite, I think you'll find th...

I would probably be considered outside of the time period, so I'm not expecting to be informed (although I believe I should be)- but no, I have recieved nothing but the spectrum!

As far as I know he's not in Ses... As far as I understand it, the aim is for Lucca leadership trust to serve a wider field than the youth of Ses. It is of course full of them -just look at the pictures on the site- although they do get 'outsiders' coming in for the courses. The bias is understandab...

Re: Legal Relationships

Also does anyone know what documents/ information schools are required to keep records of over time, and which of them do Ex-pupils and current Parents have a right to access? Are independent/private schools exempt from any laws? Here's a link to the details of the Freedom of Information Act: http:...

...another worrying aspect is that the parent mentions a "pledge" system of payment - where instead of paying money they can "contribute" to the fees by work. Isn't that the sort of thing the scientologists do? Is it common in the SES? I'm don't know about it in terms of the St. James Schools, but ...

What about a public inquiry? In the politics and government of Commonwealth countries such as Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, a public inquiry is an official review of events or actions ordered by the government. A public inquiry differs from more general inquiries or reviews in that evide...

Does the fact that the fees are now comparable to other private schools indicate that some SES appointed bursar is no longer deciding what the teachers "need" to earn, or is it because facilities have improved? What about the teachers now - those who are not members of the SES - do they tolerate lo...

adrasteia - Who the fuck are you? Despite seeming to have been to St.James and have some knowledge of how SES works I can detect no distress in your postings; they are consistently inflected with a light-heartedness which is quite innappropriate, and now are becoming apologist. I always attempt to ...

Really Adrasteia? Are you sure about that? How would you define 'good' in this context? And 'good' for who? The cult?......or for their unsuspecting prey perhaps? I suppose they would have said 'for the good of all'. So as the rest, a lofy ideal, but empty and corrupted. They have certainly not rea...
