The 1980 Department of Education and Science Report into Chetham’s School of Music, National Archives ED 172/598/2

Below can be found the full text of the Her Majesty’s Inspectors’ report on Chetham’s School of Music prepared by the Department of Education in Science in 1980, copied from the National Archives file ED 172/598/2. There is no major ‘smoking gun’ here, nothing to suggest that the inspectors noticed much of the abuse which was going on at the time (though very little about issues of safeguarding too – much less of a priority then than now), but many who were at the school at the time will no doubt find this interesting to read.
