547. Royal Alexandra and Albert School

The Royal Alexandra and Albert School became the center of the investigation against former a school headmaster. As result of his terrible acts a former student became depressed and committed suicide. The courts sentenced the former school headmaster to 17 years in prison.

It is unclear whether the school has taken precautions to protect the students today against similar actions but it is safe to say that it could not have been fun to be there as student while the convicted teacher was headmaster.

    Having attended The Royal Alexandra and Albert School from 1983 until 1991 I can tell you that, as a student, it was a fantastic experience. But this may have been because Phillip Batten wasn’t (as you state) the Headmaster but rather was ‘a’ housemaster of one of the many houses at the school (there are 10 houses in total). I was never accommodated in his house (Gloucester House) and neither were the vast majority of Gattonians.

    This isn’t to play down his disgusting crimes, just to add some clarity and correct some errors in your piece.
