A former teacher has appeared in court accused of abusing pupils at a top boys school over a period of 21 years.

Alan Morris, 63, who is also a church deacon, denies 47 counts of sexual abuse against 29 boys.

The alleged offences are said to have taken place at St Ambrose College in Hale near Altrincham between 1973 and 1994.

It is claimed that at the time all the pupils were under 16.

Rev Morris was given bail at Manchester city magistrates’ court.

The case was adjourned until August 15 when he will appear at Manchester Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.

Rev Morris worked as a deacon at Holy Angels Church in Hale Barns, although he has not been involved in active ministry since his arrest.

He was charged with 41 counts of indecent assault,  five alleging gross indecency, and outraging public decency.

Rev Morris, of Rivington Road, Hale , spoke only to confirm his name and address and deny the charges against him.

The prosecution raised no objection to bail but he was ordered to stay away from prosecution witnesses and not to have unsupervised contact with children under 18.

The Shrewsbury Diocese said in a statement: “Such (alleged) offences are unrelated to his ministry as a deacon. In accordance with statutory safeguarding procedures, Deacon Morris remains withdrawn from active ministry at this time. We pray for all those involved in this matter.”
