In a blog in May this year Mr Forrest spoke of having a “moral dilemma” which left him “wondering how should we, define what is right or wrong, acceptable or unacceptable? He concluded: “I was satisfied that if you can look yourself in the mirror and know that, under all the front, that you are a good person, that you should have faith in your own judgment.” It is not the first time the Bishop Bell School has been hit by a scandal.
Earlier this year it emerged that a retired priest had been allowed to remain a governor for more than a year after child sex allegations came to light.
Canon Gordon Rideout, 73, was charged in June with 38 sexual offences against children and young teenagers dating back to the 1960s and 1970s.
Miss Clode, who attends prestigious independent school Dollar Academy in Clackmannanshire, reached for her mobile and took some pictures of the James Dean and Spiderman star, and then - as teenagers are wont to do – she turned the lens on herself and took some ‘selfies’ with the 35-year-old box office hit in the background.
Several hours later they were caught on CCTV at Dover, boarding a ferry bound for Calais.Sussex Police have been liaising with their French counterparts and descriptions of the pair have been widely circulated across the Channel.Last night, it was alleged Mr Forrest had been contacting Megan on Twitter over several months, with one message allegedly reading: “Me & you.Let’s just run away.” In another, he is reported to have said: “I wanna wake up naked next to you.” Mr Forrest, from Lewes, East Sussex, married Emily Faulder, a 31-year-old photographer, last year in Brighton.
Many of Megan’s fellow pupils took to social networking sites to express their shock at the news. You were like my favourite teacher as well.” Mr Forrest’s father Jim last night said the family “cannot believe” it and urged him to make contact.He added he had attempted to call the “popular” teacher, but said “his phone is off”.
