Summary
In December 2013 Peter Wright was convicted of 12 offences against children committed at Caldicott while he was head teacher. He and Hugh Henry, who pleaded guilty to abusing Mark Payge and others, were due to be sentenced in Feb 2014, but Hugh Henry was killed by a train in Amersham the day before sentencing was due to take place. Peter Wright was sentenced to 8 years. In 2003, Martin Carson admitted the buggery and indecent assault of two Caldicott pupils. And last year John Addrison, pleaded guilty to 13 charges of sexually abusing two boys at the school and four at another prep school and was sentenced to five years. Keith Geddes, charged with five sexual offences against four Caldicott boys, was acquitted this year after a retrial. Awards BAFTA for Best Documentary - in 2009 Mental Health Awards - Best Documentary Nomiee - in 2009 Mental Health Awards Speaking Out Award Winner - in 2009 Broadcast Award Best Documentary Nominee - in 2009 "It's that rare thing: a documentary with worthy intentions that's neither overly manipulative nor heavy handed...it's sometimes easy to forget that documentary can often be used as a tool for good: Chosen reaffirms that possibility." - The Scotsman. "Raw, emotional and intense beyond words...." - The Independent. "Well and away the most wonderful thing last night was Chosen...I do not recall hearing truth so stripped and shivering before. They described unsparingly the grooming, the abuse, the guilty sense of being complicit in their own destruction." - Nancy Banks Smith, The Guardian. "A masterpiece. So perfectly done, with so much art, dignity and compassion, that it commands attention." - The Telegraph.
