Well I guess we have to try and trust Townend to respect our wishes. I am asking in my covering letter with my submission to be kept anonymous in the report, and have explained exactly why, so hopefully he will respect that. As to what happens to our submissions afterwards, well, I guess we just hav...

Someone asked me a question yesterday, and it made me think: What will happen to all the complaints we submit after the enquiry? Does anyone know? Is there any danger they could be passed to SES? After all, no point in my asking to remain anonymous in the report if they then get hold of my submissio...

I don't know for sure, but I think it's highly likely that my grandparents will. They've been so heavily involved for so long, I can't imagine that they haven't written SES into their wills.

That's great Mike! And please don't feel guilty for setting this up - I can only speak for myself, but it's been a great help to me, despite it bringing back old ghosts. It helps just knowing there are enough people out there who went through the same or similar experiences for there to be 3000+ pos...

Yes, that's the one! She did change her name (well remembered!) as she was married to a Mr Piper, who died. I don't have such good memories of Mrs West, although you're right, she was better than Caldwell (but then who isn't!). A stream about good teachers, and also more positive experiences of the ...

Hi Daska, Glad to hear I wasn't the only one - I can completely sympathise with an aversion to exercise, I have to struggle now to convince myself it's a good idea to do some! And I had a tutor at University who reminded me so strongly of Southwell that I couldn't be in the same room as him (he was ...

Thanks for all your replies. I think I might have given the impression that I'm more sorted out than I actually am! I've had a hard time over the last couple of days, since posting my original post. I think it's because, although I've told those stories many times, in an effort to get friends to und...

More about St James' Girls

Hi! I can?t really believe that this site exists, I think it?s great, and about time too! It?s strange, isn?t it, how we all seem to have thought that we were alone in those hellish schooldays. If only we?d realised at the time! I was at St James? Girl?s School from 1979 until 1989, from the age of ...
