I have been looking in all the press for a follow up to Adrian Jessett's prison sentence. He was sentenced in 2002 for 4 years. But, apart from the original reports in 2001 and 2002, I cannot seem to find anything further.
Does anyone have any reports from 2002 onwards?
Thank you.

Mr Clayton - glad to see you're still alive and well and survived the good ship DSS Wythenshawe and that there's still enough cheese in Stockport to keep an old mouse going. How do you fancy meeting up for a pint and a chat ?
Drop me a mail or do you go to county ? I live at the pie stand end of row E in the mainstand at Edgeley Park for every homegame, maybe see you there?

I was very moved to see a picture of my cousin, BRIAN KIRWAN, who sadly died in a car crash in 1979 - thank you for the tribute. I was only young when he died and it is really special to see that he was so well thought of. St. Augustine's is obviously a very caring School.

Well I guess some of us have not really moved on. I met a former pupil a few weeks ago and asked if he would like to meet his former tormentor down a dark alley one night and he told me he does, every Saturday night!!

Hi, I've found this site researching a feature on school uniform for PSR, a new magazine for private school staff and parents. I hope you'll allow me to quote from the headmaster's letter on uniform and on the uniform list. It does show how times have changed.

Is there a reason why nobody mentions the year the entire Upper Sixth were sacked early from their Prefect resposibilities? Is this incident so ignoble that all concerned have suppressed the memory?

"equum mortuum flagellare"

As you may know there have been some significant develoments at Beastland recently. The cones around the B of the Bang have been replaced and there has been a fresh delivery of ketchup to the hot dog stand.

To celebrate these momentous events we are pleased to announce that 3 members of our team have brought out books to cash in. Here is a list of the titles :

Football, I Must Try It Sometime (M Ball).

Playing To Win, I Must Try It sometime (S Pearce).

I've just spent a happily nostalgic hour browsing the site, and I think it is excellent. Very entertaining and informative, I loved reading the old Spike letters, he really was a one-off. I'm 51 now, and the memory is fading a bit, so it really brought it all back - I remember the nightmare composition of the 'Reverend and dear Father' letters...
