He is also the father of a couple of boys who went to St James in the early days and who have been very active recently in attacking its staff and governors. That's quite an accusation to be throwing around, Kevin. Where or what is your evidence for this?? I suggest if you want to maintain any cred...

Completely agree. As long as this cult remains involved in children's education the negative publicity will NEVER go away. Its been there or thereabouts for the last 25 years so its about time they got used to it. Pretty much a no-brainer really. Founding a religious cult for adults is one thing but...

how could someone find it if they didn't know it was there. For example if someone googled St James Independent schools would it come up? CM, if you click on "more info" it shows all the tags. So I think it would come up if you put any of those into a YouTube search. Maybe St James Indepe...

Roger Pincham's Retirement Video

There's been some talk recently of getting something posted up on YouTube. Well here's something a group of friends put together in recognition of Roger Pincham's recent retirement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grIaJMUpkaE (Turn speakers ON) Feel free to post a comment and add a rating.

I feel I must point out for the benefit of people reading this board that Christopher Southwell in particular was also extremely abusive (both physically and emotionally) to many of the female pupils he taught. He certainly made my life a living hell. I can certainly vouch for that, ET. Ditto here....

A perfect exposure of the hypocrisy that will continue to haunt them.

Good for for you, Tom!

My parents (both ex-ses members) have always told me that MacLaren not only sanctioned the beatings and punishments at the day schools, but positively encouraged them. One of his well known quotes went along the lines of "all a child needs is to be fed, clothed and given a good clip round the e...

I couldn't agree more, Bonsai. It might be worth contacting the article's author, Conor Feehan at http://www.independent.ie/service/contact-us-24070.html If he was made aware of the full horror of these schools' background perhaps he might consider doing a follow-up article, if for no other reason t...

If this gives SES members a forum to question, challenge or debate material which is proffered as 'The Truth', then it must surely be a good thing. There's also a note that mentions it has been set up partly in response to this forum: The "whyaretheydead" message board had forced St James ...

it seems you still think I'm trying to defend the SES! Ok, well lets put it this way - you've been, shall we say, ambiguous over this issue ever since you first started posting on this board. One thing's for sure, you've perplexed a lot of posters here over the years, coming across on the one hand ...

It does, however, point to the view that one needs to be careful when criticising their beliefs or practices per se, the trap into which the angry parent fell. But you haven't answered the underlying and central point, made to you several times, that the angry parent had been duped in the first pla...

You are creating a straw man argument. The 'angry parent' would have had no cause to complain about any of this if they had not been deceived in the first place. Hence I refer you back to my above post. You accuse me of being immature and then say that you're "trying to hold a reasonable debate...

Once again, more of the same tired and lame arguments by SES defenders. How many times does it need to be repeated: its not a problem with Hinduism, Advaita Vedanta, or any other religion per se. Its the deliberate deception, opaqueness and blatant disingenuousness which hoodwinks prospective parent...
