Philip Dyke, Convicted Sex Offender

Mr Phillip Dyke, was convicted of charges of gross indecency and indecent assault in 2013.

A former teacher at the school, Dyke held the position of loco parentis, taking responsibility for boarders. Over an eight-year period Dyke abused his position, taking students to his flat on the school grounds, to sexually assault them.

After one former student came forward about the abuse, police appealed to several others who attended during this period. From those contacted, 30 responded with information relating to Dyke and he was eventually charged with indecent assault, gross indecency, buggery and of taking an incident photograph. He was convicted at St Albans Crown Court in 2013, to 8 years in prison.

It was heard that one of the things which attracted Dyke to the school was the chance to see naked boys showering. One victim claimed that Dyke waited for him after taking a shower and approached him wearing only a towel, asking him to go to his flat. Others claimed that they were groomed with alcohol and cigarettes to spend time with the teacher before they were eventually assaulted.
