Apparently I received an honourable mention from the headmaster at last night's prizegiving ceremony at St. Benedict's School. Parents were told about this blog (though in indirect terms) and warned to be highly skeptical about what it contains.

If you are reading these words as a result of wondering what the headmaster was talking about, let me welcome you, and add that I entirely agree with the headmaster about not taking my word for anything.

Read as much as you wish, compare what I say with official documents, the Abbot's letters to parents, the school's child protection policy, what you have discussed with teachers or other parents, and then make up your own mind.

If you conclude that there is nothing to concern you, then fine. On the other hand, if you decide you do have a worry, then feel free to contact me in confidence. Send me an email, my address is


  1. The Ealing Gazette published a new article about the School yesterday. It seems that another teacher has been suspended.

    It just keeps getting worse.

  2. How dare the Headmaster, Mr Cleugh, attack this blog as anti-Catholic. It is not anti-Catholic, it is anti-paedophile. Perhaps Mr Cleugh and the monks consider Catholicism and paedophilia to be synonymous. I certainly do not. I agree with the Pope, who today spoke of how important it is that schools provide a safe environment for children and young people.

    It is high time that any connection with education was taken away from these accursed monks, who have done so much to blight the lives of so many young innocent souls, grievously injured by these fiends just as they were beginning their spiritual lives. Let them be cursed eternally, as Christ himself cursed them, and let their damned foundation be ground into nothing, and may that evil rabble return to their master Satan, stripped of the robes of piety. I feel very strongly in my bones and in my soul that there is a judgement being prepared for them now.

  3. Cleugh of course is another merseysider to add to Nelson and Shipperlee who are connected via of St Anselm's. So where does Carlile fit - only a few miles further south is the possible answer but it is likely to be something more subtle and opaque I speculate.

    Answers on a postcard please.
