The report of the court case involving the false allegations against a teacher at this school by one of the pupils is deeply worrying. What does this case about the privileged boys(s) at this school - if this was the 'local comp' wouldn't there be leader columns in the mail and the DT.

Well on the bright side it shows that boys at independent schools are as normal as boys at state schools - good, bad, ugly and smelly.

I wasn't aware of this case so I googled it. The teacher sounded incredibly naive. How did the boys know where she lived? Why did she buy them cider? Why didn't she call the police? How could she go to bed (and it appears the door wasn't locked) with the boys still in the house? I'm not saying that anything happened, just that she displayed extremely poor judgement. :shock:

I Googled it and found what must be the account you're describing. I could hardly believe what I was reading! If that account is accurate then I have to say I'm not surprised that the teacher lost her job. Not because of the allegation, which has now been found to have been a lie, but because of what she *admitted* having done.

The school in question was local to me when I was growing up, and it used to have a good reputation. I bet they experience a significant drop in applications now, in view of the way some of the boys are allegedly allowed to behave in class :shock:

This is not 'normal' behaviour by anybody's standard.

The teacher was on GMTV this morning, she said she wasn't required to be qualified as a teacher to do this job, which sounds a bit worrying. /She was incredibly inexperienced. Also that there is a chance she could be reinstated but does not want to go back to teaching anymore. She did add that it is an excellent school.

In the DT there was.

Her behaviour was completely unprofessional and must have violated any child protection policy the school had in place.

Even if she did not have a formal teaching qualification, the school should have ensured she fully understood child protection policies and understood the boundaries between pupils and teachers before taking up her post.

If the students were under 18 she should have been prosecuted for supplying alcohol to minors.

I would certainly be asking the governors a few questions if I were forking out £8k a year for my child to be a pupil at this school.
