Top girls’ school sex claims

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

A TOP pri­vate girls’ school has found it­self at the cen­tre of a sex abuse scan­dal af­ter ask­ing for­mer pupils to con­trib­ute to a project about ha­rass­ment.

Two alum­nae of St Paul’s Girls’ School in west London have come for­ward to say they were abused in the 1970s and 1990s. The claims came to light as the drama depart­ment be­gan de­vel­op­ing a piece of doc­u­men­tary the­atre which is due to be per­formed at the Ed­in­burgh fes­ti­val fringe next year. The two com­plainants have not yet iden­ti­fied any al­leged per­pe­tra­tors.

The high mis­tress of the £24,000-a-year school, Sarah Fletcher, has writ­ten to them ask­ing if they are pre­pared to iden­tify them.

She has promised the school will do ‘all we can to sup­port’ po­ten­tial vic­tims.
