On the day before Christmas Eve, some news about ongoing developments relating to St George’s School, Great Finborough, crept into the East Anglian media.
Operation Racecourse continues its investigation of St George’s. Gerard Singer, who taught languages at the school in the early 1980s, has been extradited from France and charged by Suffolk police with 34 offences, including 16 indecent assaults and 12 counts of gross indecency with a boy under 14. A preliminary hearing will be held at Ipswich Crown Court on January 5 and a trial hearing is anticipated between May 10 and June 17.
Interestingly BBC Suffolk chose to point out that “The current Finborough School on the same site is unconnected to St George’s School.”
That emphatic declaration is a bit surprising given that BBC Suffolk are surely aware that John Sinclair, formerly principal at Finborough School and father of current principal James Sinclair, was admissions officer at St George’s School during Derek Slade’s headmastership and along with other members of the Sinclair family, including his son, the present principal, he was a director of Anglemoss Ltd., the company that owned St George’s from the time of its foundation until 2011 when the company went into liquidation.
BBC Suffolk might have been expected to be more familiar with the ongoing saga of St George’s not only because the Slade trial took place on their patch at Ipswich Crown Court but also because of the locally high-profile trial of Simon Warr, a frequent contributor to BBC Radio Suffolk, charged with and acquitted of assaults against pupils at St George’s during his time as a teacher recruited during Slade’s time there.
Has this blog closed now? Gojam hardly ever seems to make new posts.
I sincerely hope not. Articles and comment on wider economic and geopolitical issues which will provide a context explaining the need for control of politicians by vested interests would be a good idea in my humble opinion.
