Independent safeguarding review published

A safeguarding review into abuse committed by John Smyth QC against pupils and former pupils of Winchester College in the 1970s and 1980s has been published.

The report was written to share the accounts of the victims, to identify safeguarding learning from the events which took place and to stress-test the existing framework at the College to ensure the safety of current and future pupils.

Winchester College commissioned Genevieve Woods to undertake the review as an independent expert in safeguarding, with Jan Pickles OBE.
