Highgate School ‘predatory paedophile’ brought to justice after 40 years

June 6th, 2012

Roger Bliss, a science teacher and house master at the independent Highgate School used his “charismatic” personality to prey on vulnerable prepubescent pupils in the 1970s. Bliss, who patrolled the corridors of the boarding house at night, would sit beside pupils in their beds and slide his hands under the covers to fondle the boys.

Bliss plead guilty to 19 counts of indecent assault against seven different boys and was sentenced to two and a half years but could be released on licence within 15 months.
