COMMENT –


The Old Rectory in Kent has been erroneously named here.
The old rectory in banham norfolk was the school subject to an investigation and criminal proceedings.
The owner Mr George robson was ironically honoured for his work with children by Princess Ann shortly before the investigation started.

    It may be coincidence but Jimmy saviles old pal Sir Anthony Blunt is in the news again, it turns out 3 of the little boys who named him as abusers at their care home died within a year, 2 within a month or so, these were now grown men in their sixties somehow i doubt if it was coincidence, that these men whistelblew about gay sex in orphanages all died in a short space of time

    Jeez what a list, I’ll bet a list showing no abuse would be a lot shorter. What the hell is wrong with this country?, it seems the gay mafia isnt something new. All us decent law abiding men should lower our heads in shame that we have let the perverts and homosexuals take over our land.

    Some good comments here .
    The catholic church has been blown apart by gay scandals.
    The C of E actually allow perverts to be preists as well.
    The Spiritualist church has also seen many pedosrise to the top of its assoc.
    My son was 6 when he came home from school saying he was being tought about gay sex.
    This perversion is wrong wrong wrong.

    I went to Garth House in Preston at about 7 years old (1977).

    Alltho I do not recall being abused myself I do remember one night when a member of staff came into my room (shared by another boy).

    I fell asleep to the sound of abuse, I remember hearing the member of staff (who was now in the other boys bed) saying “yes that is it, suck it like a lollypop or I will beat the fucking shit out of you”.

    I could go on about my further years in care, but I think this is enough, it sickens me, and as for the deaths of those who speak out about I have this to say.

    Bring it on you dirty old fuckers, try your best, I will never ever tire of hurting you, be brave and knock on my door, it will be the last thing you ever do.

    I was in Clwyd hall school and was abused by two male members of staff was bullied also by a mr Williams who became headmaster, I was bullied and abused for several years,,,, yet these convicts get silly punishments because they were government approved, myself I have not had a successful place in life, as im to defensive of myself in life as no-one was defensive of me during school life…. things were so bad when I turned 16 I changed my name by deed poll (and i’m now 47), so nothing would come back to me!, but now I see this and think its about time I came forward and help try and reconvict certain people, on behalf of all the poor lost souls who took there life because of there traumas,,, ( LET US ALL PRAY AND FIGHT FOR THE LOST SOULS THAT THEY ARE IN PEACE NOW)….I’m sorry im late with this but I’ve only just come across this problem, and thought I should voice my concerns….. the convictions that were given by the so called judge should be looked into as they were too lenient, maybe he was involved some way, as o know a father who hit his kids once and got 18 months sentence ,, so this was once , yet the abusers was constant for years and get silly sentences
    anyway if theres anyone from 1972 to 1978 who would like

    I was sent by my parents to Taxal convalescent home in Derbyshire circa 1959. I would not eat properly and consequently was underweight. My parents told me I would be there for 2 weeks, but there was a minimum stay of 4 weeks, which my parents lied about as they knew I would not go for that length of time. It was not a good experience. I have read some comments about other children’s experiences both good and bad. I now only have a few recollections of my time there. Notably the particular smell of polish used for either the floor or furniture which I have recognised elsewhere over the years. More notable still is the memory of being sexually abused by a young male doctor. We both had an interest in electronic devices and he befriended me via that shared interest. I do remember thinking that as he was a doctor and this is a place where my parents have sent me, this must have been normal behaviour. I was nine years old.

    I do not see Kerr House in Cosham being listed. I went into care to be safe from my parents, I forget the age.. I was in this home in the early 90’s at around 13 years of age. I have a recollection of being thrown down a huge flight of stairs and a male member of staff sat on my back when I reached the bottom, whilst holding my arm behind my back. Oh how I’d love to meet these people again some day…

    I was in Strawberry Fields from 1987 – 1992. I witnessed abuse, and was victim to it also.
    It was physical, sexual, mental and psycological abuse.
    My sister was abused, and she took the abuser to court, yet he got away with it, it was brushed under the carpet. She was moved to another home, and the abiser stayed, allowing him to carry on abusing more victims, including myself.

    That is my story

    another one to add is Forest view children s home in Sutherland Rd southampon hants. I was there in the early 80’s. so many things i could tell that happened there. but one that may have been a record of. I was in a room with another boy who was on a weekend visit to his home so I was alone that weekend.I was woken is the early hours, the room was turned upside down the other bed tipped over the wardrobe emptied out on the floor. the male house parent on duty was trowing things against the wall. When he saw i was awake he picked up a football scarf off the floor and wrapped it round my neck and pulled it tight. He told me to “close your fucking or im going to kill you”. I closed my eyes and he started slapping me around the head and punching me in the ribs. He then got off me and left the room. He came back a few minutes later with one of the girls and showed he what he had done , then he and her went into his room. the female member of staff on duty heard the noise but stayed in her room. He was suspended for a couple of weeks for this but returned to work again. I was never asked what happened that night or was the girl whom he spent the night with. I guess the guy who did this is probably dead now or in his 70’s 80’s but if i ever met him again i would kill him on the spot for what he did us in the home. He did much much worse than this to me and others in the home but as far as i know this was the only thing that every resulted in any action being taken.

    Can anyone help? My partner was sexually abused at cicely haughton school wetley rocks around the years 1984 – 1987. He cannot remember his abusers name, although he says he definatly remembers what he looks like. The abuser in question was maybe a care taker who lived in, and preyed on these young boys at night. Can anyone provide me with a list of the names of staff during the 80’s, or a link to where i can get more information from. He has come to a time in his life where he needs closure on this, he needs to know if this man was ever convicted of similar crimes, if he is now dead or indeed living the life of riley somewhere? Any information however small you may think it is would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Hello, I was in cicely haughtron barding school and left in 1984, I may well know you partner, I am now 41 and still do not have any closure on the abuse that I suffered. I am currently in the process of having my claims of abuse re looked at by staffordshire police, as much as i would like to help, I would say that you need to report the abuse in the first instance to the police. it would be highly inappropriate of me to give names over the internet and certainly to other victims who were abused in the same home. if the case ever managed to get to court, beleive me, defence barristers would have a “ball” in discrediting the victims along the lines of collusion. It is possible that I will know your partner and i would like to help, indeed, i have all the names recorded and have handed this to staffordshire police. The officer investigating my case is DC Sue Stanley of the Adult Protection Unit. Please, please, for the sake of yourself and that of other victims from that home, report what you know, with your help and others we can bring justice to those who have suffered under the terrible regime that cicely haughton in the 70’s and 80’s. I urge you to contact the police at the earliest opportunity. good luck for the future.

    Windlestone Hall is missing from the list, I was there between 1985-1989 and was repeatedly subject to physical abuse over that period of time.
    Has anyone else heard of this place, it’s in County Durham

    Dennington College, Swimbridge, North Devon. I know it’s already on here but it’s named as happening in the 70’s. I’d just like to clarify and confirm that it was going on in the early 80’s as well. Messed my life up real good. Not to mention that this was all reported to the police as well and nothing was ever done.

        They work in conjunction with Thatcham an Newbury. The mini bus would ferry us from, school to school. The white lands park an greenham house. Sadly most people who attended park Lane children’s home, former work house. Was whare the victims were first chosen. I was picked from a foster placement first. Then mum got me moved. My brother was suicided when he started speaking out in early 2003-4. Also there a exceptional high number of forced adoptions in those areas. My guess is a form of silencing. Iv previously tried to Wright on here but comment would deleat before it wouldnt send so much info missing but I would be happy to share gathered resources.

    Canterbury
    Kent.
    In the 1980’s.
    Care Worker had sex with one of the girls when she return after going to a disco.
    She told us (other girls) then locked herself in the bathroom and tried to kill herself.
    Other staff overheard us talking about it and gain access and got her out, bandage her wrists.
    Member of staff who did the act continued to work out his notice.
    He told us “he’d be alright. He’d get another job doing the same thing he did then.”
    Can’t recall his name now. Did know it up until I was 40. I have not forgotten the other children in ‘care’.
    I guess I wasn’t ‘suitable’ material for him. He had come in my room at night when I’d 1st arrived but I had made it clear he wasn’t welcome without realising his likely intention.

    Hi did anyone go to Barwick House School, yeovil? My brother went there and was abused and witnessed abuse and maybe murder. Children went missing during the night without anyone hearing them leave no ambulance no cars nothing. There are not many boys left from this school, I’m am talking about the 80s, my brother has struggled all through his life with low self esteem depression and drinks or takes drugs to forget. He is in his late 40s and it is still raw, I support him as much as I can, but someone must be brought to justice, the council or the family who benefitted from the school.

  46. My brother was abused he was in The Greenstead, Kent and Orchard house. still do not have any closure on the abuse that he suffered. He is currently in the process of having his claims of abuse re looked at by staffordshire police, as much as he would like to help, he would say that they need to report the abuse in the first instance to the police. But by certain teachers,being made to strip naked and stand at the pool,being beaten for something he did not do,I could go on,but it pains her to remember them. JM CareHomes Supported Living

    I was in redhill royal phillantropic in the 1970s, I spent 7months being beaten and tormented by staff and the older boys who the staff got to abuse us, my crime for going there was I didn’t go to school, yet I have had years of torment over what happened to me whilst in care, no-one cared then and nobody cares today, I found my file has been sealed for 75yrs and can under no circumstances be opened before then, there still covering it all up, yet I bet if I had killed someone they would open it and state some shit that happened to me as the reason why, I’m going to do better I am going to write all the gory details down and publish it and spend a copy to all the staffs family of the ones I know we’re abusing us kids

    The amount of cruelty and maltreatment of childrenrevealed on sites like this is appalling.
    In reply to ~Karen Cummings message above, who were these boys who alleged Antony Blunt had molested them, and which care home was it?
    I wonder if you still have a link if the nes was online or may be you read it in a paper.

    >>It may be coincidence but Jimmy saviles old pal Sir Anthony Blunt is in the news again, it turns out 3 of the little boys who named him as abusers at their care home died within a year, 2 within a month or so, these were now grown men in their sixties somehow i doubt if it was coincidence, that these men whistelblew about gay sex in orphanages all died in a short space of time

    I was at an assessement centre in Birstall Leicester approx1964-1965 as i had been taken into care as my mother was shall we say, not fit for purpose. Miss Sonia looked kind but was a bully and Miss Bell not much better.

    I was then placed in Rosehill at Mkt Harborough where the then houseparents, Mr and Mrs Fox and Miss Helen seemed great and I had no issue. They retired and awful new houseparents took over; they had a son but cannot recollet their name. Awful people and I always wondered what happened to a girl who was placed there with her brother; pretty girl who was there and then, she was gone. I was then sent to llive at The Poplars which was down the road with Mr and Mrs Bell as houseparents. They too seemed great. There were other houseparents living in but never experienced abuse at The Poplars.

    Perhaps the fact I was a bedwetter and a very plain child, I was not of interest. Also it might be relevant, I was taken into care as my mother took great dilight in knocking seven shades out of me so if I got hit or told I was dirty etc would be water off a ducks back. After all, it was the price of three meals.

    FWIW, Rosehill changed 1966 when the Foxes and Miss Helen retired; something, the atmosphere was heavy and it was a relief to be sent down the road to The Poplars.

  52. Dogman says:

    My sympathies to all that have been abused. Far too many people are in denial of the the volume of abuse and the justice system doesn’t help deal with it.

    Source of the following is ukpaedos-exposed.com, which does list all the most lenient judges.
    Out of almost 7,000 paedophiles found guilty of sexual activity with children, a shocking 2,862 avoided prison – more than 40 per cent.
    Most were given community sentences while 605 received suspended sentences and 41 got only a FINE. Another 1,700 sex offenders got away with police cautions last year, according to Government figures.
    Those given cautions are more likely to face jail in future after guidelines to give victims the right to challenge police decisions through the courts were unveiled last week. But the muddled system was attacked by Peter Saunders, chief executive of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood.
    He said: “A lot of the judiciary don’t understand the catastrophic nature of the crime and the damage it does. If more of them understood, they would say, ‘If you commit this crime you are going to jail for a long time.’”
    The figures, uncovered by investigations agency OpenWorld News, show child sex prosecutions in England and Wales between 2005 and 2011.
    Almost 6,941 defendants were sentenced for offences defined as sexual activity with a child under 13, with a child under 16, or gross indecency with a child. The numbers could be the tip of the iceberg as they don’t take into ­account offenders sentenced for other child sex crimes including porn, grooming and sexual assault, plus rape.
    Alarmingly, more than 1,000 of those found guilty in crown and magistrates courts – one in seven – already had at least one conviction or a caution for a previous sex crime.
    A total 429 of these had three or more previous convictions and cautions for sex offences.
    Magistrates let the vast majority walk free with fines and suspended or community sentences.
    Out of 844 sentenced only 80 were sent straight to prison – fewer than one in 10. Of the 6,097 offenders ­sentenced at crown court, more than a third avoided immediate custody.
    In 2009 more than 4,000 child abusers went on to commit more than 1,200 further sex crimes, including 330 against children, within a year of being released from their previous sentences.

    I was the 2nd person to be interviewed for “Operation Rose ” Newcastle . I had a bet with Doreen Telford . That no one would be prosecuted . She said she couldn’t bet . But she came to my home one day and if she wasn’t CID . I’d have won the money . How can anyone be prosecuted when they have gone from being staff in children’s homes to high up members of government that protect each other . Brian Roycroft Director of Newcastle social services . Knew and did nothing , but was honoured with awards . It’s almost laughable

    Werrington Appoved School,Rocester, Uttoxeter, Staffs.

    My childhood ended at the age of 10, my step father turned into a drunk and made my life a misery, beating and chastising me for no good reason, it was as if he enjoyed doing it, my mother could not cope and i was sent to a childerns home in Shrewsbury named Besford House, i was there for a short time for my protection, but while there i kept running away, it was for this reason that i was sent to the Werrington approved schools for boys, where i was at the school for a very lengthy and unhappy 4 years from 1962 up until 1966, when i became 16,i was 11 when i was first sent there, my house was Trent and my number was 90, (no names), whilst i was there i never did try to run away from the school (more like a prison even though it was open), the thought and fear of what would happen if i was caught prevented this, after seeing 8 boys who had run away in the middle of the night, and who where all caught within 3 weeks, where then paraded on the dinning room stage, where they ordered to drop there pants and to bend over the 8 chairs that had been placed in such a way to show there naked bottoms to the rest of the school, they where then severely caned on the naked backsides each in turn.
    I always remember my first day at the school and my first parade, which was at that time held out in the open on a square of concrete, i was asking the boy next to me what i was expected to do, i was then singled out by Mr Glynn (the gardener) who was taking parade, because he said i was talking on parade, he called me out of the parade to face him in full view of all the other boys, then for no reason he slapped my ear which was very painful and my ear bled a little, he told me not to cry or he would belt my
    other ear, since then i have to ware a earring aid on that ear, he had perforated my ear drum.
    Over the next 4 years i was bullied, not only by the other boys, but also to some extent by a few of the other staff, this was due because i was seen to be soft which stemmed from my first day encounter with Mr Glynn ).
    It was understood that when you reached 24 stars for good behavior you would be released and allowed home,
    some boys went home after serving 6 months, meanwhile because my parents where trying to sort out there relationship i was kept at the school for 4 years, 4 long years of a living hell, which seemed to go on for ever at the time.
    I now look back on those days with a hatred for the people and the establishment who had placed me in a very hostile environment,and who had robbed me of a possible and happier childhood. My negative experience of that time have remained with me for all time.
    The few friends which i made, who came and went over the 4 years i was at the school where Peter Dean, Michel Chapman, and Bland.
    I would dearly like to hear from any of the boys who think that they might have known me at the school between 1962 to 1966. My name is John, known only as number 90 at the school.
