Interesting...I never realised there had been a revised edition. Given that they're accepting orders for the book I think its possible there could be some confusion and Paul Swallow was referring to the 1st addition. So it's probably worth double checking. Andrew Hogg and Peter Hounam are also membe...

I've never tried it but I think it's pretty easy to append things on.

I also suggest you do a search for posts by a poster called "temporarily duped"

The easiest way to do this is to look their name up in the 'Memberlist' at the top, then click on the link: "Find all posts by temporarily duped", for example.

Just to set the record straight...

I recently met up with the ex-St Vedast pupil who told the inquiry he was beaten hundreds of times by Debenham. It turns out that this was in fact not a “lie” or a “gross exaggeration” (as Townend concluded). It took place between the years of 75-80 when for most of that period Debenham, ill...

What you say is true, Sly. However, there is one critical difference which you have failed to point out: With catholic schools there is total transparency up front about exactly what kind of an organisation it is BEFORE you part with your money and BEFORE you send your beloved children there. Unfort...

Everyone I've spoken to on here (5 or so) has no knowledge of this 'plan'... but maybe I've been speaking with the wrong people!

Re net searches, I am guessing that your experience in academe must make you a bit of a whiz net-searcher - it's been discussed in other threads how little comes up doing a net search on the SES; even in 2006! Yes you can get lots of results, but with such common words as 'school' 'economic' 'scien...

Pincham?s reply to my open letter is currently being circulated to its 91 signatories. Now that it has also been posted here I thought I should clear up any confusion surrounding paragraph 3 of the open letter: The assurances Pincham has sought (and on which the governors? consideration of the lette...

I complained frequently to the schools and became thought of as a troublesome mother with her own ideas. David Boddy said This is the first time the Governors had heard of all of this...They only became aware about past complaints against the Schools in 2004 via an Internet forum. David Boddy - you...

A firm of solicitors put St James on notice a year back that they were acting for a group of anonymous former pupils and gathering evidence for possible legal action. That threat stands. The calls by Alban and others for the governors to come on this site are, in that context, no more than rhetoric...

as I understand the letter was addressed to the governors and marked private and confidential (Matthew please correct me if I'm wrong about this), how is Lambie aware that he signed it? As I said on page 1 of this thread: The open letter was sent to the St James Chair of the Governors. As the lette...

I?ve just recently learnt from a current parent that Mr Lacey continues to shout at his pupils today . The parent has had to warn the school that if this continues they will remove their child from the school. Is it not bad enough that this man has already been found to have perpetrated abuses? Is i...
