FT & daska sorry for the lateness, only checked this thread. Yes, as I have stated before (bravo for digging out the good old trusty quotes) yes I do want the truth to be told, as do the majority of my peers if only to put an end to this whole wretched business. I agree with james that some sort...

mm I feel I have to question you on this You can totally forget a child passing verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests, the school make damn sure that logical thought is more or less wiped out by the time they get to the end of the junior school. Now, when I joined in form 1 I remeber feeling complet...

mm In this way, passing entrance exams at other prep schools is made all the more difficult; thus making leaving St James extremely hard. your making it sound as if they do it on purpose just so people can't leave! This idea is ridiculous, maybe 1 person leaves every 2 years from each class in the b...

FT & others Again in defence of Sam, I think you'll find that in fact his first post was completely reasonble and responsible (except for the 'Misrepresentation bit) perhaps he got a bit over-zealous as the statement went on. But he did react when people started slating him for his poor spelling...

I sympathise with yourself and your daughter. Although I don't have first hand knowledge of the girls branch, I do understand some of the issues you raised. The maths in the boys school is beginning to pick up after a recent recruitment of some young brilliant maths teachers, but for at least 5 year...

Keir I knew exactly what I was doing when I posted my reply. The whole point was that people are making the same allegations on the same level as Sam but nothings being done to them. Point taken anyway, and as far as I know he's cooled off. Oh, and yes I do know what got him sin-binned, I do go to s...

xstJ First time I've learnt of this. I may be a current pupil of St.James, but I also want to learn the truth as does everyone. This is where certain guilty individuals can really get nailed. All that is needed is the evidence. All well and good ordering more inquiries and it is this type of stuff t...

I feel a strong need to defend Sam, mainly because he isn't here to do it himself, but also because some of the posters are getting up in a web of hypocrasy. Lets just see some of the allegations/comments/attacks made against him... SES Militant I'm sure prospective parents would be very happy to se...

hmm That stuff on the 'we are all the same' sounds suspiciously communist. The charming tale you told also harkens back to George Orwell's novels, particularly Animal farm. 'All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others'. Haha, sounds great on paper, but does it really work? Well this e...

I'm sorry to say this, but i believe there is bound to be sexual abuse where you have a group of people in a hierachy of power where some are either physically or mentally weaker than others. You'll always get those sick twisted...God I could swear so much whilst describing these people. You will al...

I'm sorry Theo mate, but I think I have to disagree with you on this one. The SES is an international community, and therefore everything is related. Maybe not physically related, but in another subtle sense. Now if bad things start to happen in one section of the community, then it has a knock on e...

Oh no another parent-child development programme? There is so much useful and in some cases brilliant information out there already for parents on parenting, why do we need another? Ok, so its been given the SES spin, but from the limited information that Sparks gave, its much the same as the others...

AntonR, I disagree. Do not be so quick to dis-regard what current pupils have to say, teenagers can make just as valid comments as older people. I think you mis-read what i said, I was actually being sympathetic. No, my mother is not in the SES, and actually she's against it but no-worries. What I w...
