SCOTTISH CHILD ABUSE INQUIRY PUBLIC HEARINGS TO RESUME

The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry will recommence hearings examining the abuse of children in Boarding Schools on Wednesday 6 October.

Hearings will take place at the Inquiry’s new premises at Mint House, 20 West Register Street, which is centrally located in Edinburgh, just off St Andrew Square.

This phase of the Boarding Schools case study relates to the following five schools:

• Gordonstoun School, Elgin
• Queen Victoria School, Dunblane
• Keil School, Dumbarton
• Fettes College, Edinburgh
• Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh

Evidence will be taken both from witnesses in person, as well as remotely via video link. More scheduling details will be published in due course.

In May of this year the Inquiry heard evidence relating to Loretto School in Musselburgh, and Morrison’s Academy in Crieff (during the time it was a boarding school).
