‘The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) is holding a public hearing in the Residential Schools investigation from 30 September – 11 October. The scope of the investigation is here; the hearing will examine child sexual abuse in residential music and special schools, as well as institutional responses and safeguarding procedures. The first week will focus on residential music schools: Chetham’s School of Music; Wells Cathedral School; Yehudi Menuhin School; and Purcell School. These schools were chosen “because of the issues arising from their specialist nature, including one-to-one tuition, an intimate atmosphere and an imbalance of power in teacher/pupil relationships”. Residential special schools will be examined in the second week of the hearing, including Appletree School, Southlands School, Stony Dean, Stanbridge Earls and Royal School Manchester.’
