Stonyhurst indiscipline claims

A FILE alleging serious disciplinary problems at Stonyhurst, a leading Roman Catholic boarding school, has been sent to the Government's independent schools' registration team.

It is understood to contain claims of indecent exposure, including an end-of-term "streak" by up to 80 boys and girls, a sexualassault, attacks on staff and possession of weapons.
