School master guilty of child abuse and told he’ll be jailed

Gazette & Herald

A SCHOOL master who molested ten boys, including at Ampleforth College in North Yorkshire, has been found guilty and is facing jail.

David Lowe, 61, put pupils through years of sexual abuse while teaching at two of the country’s most prestigious boarding schools.

Married Lowe carried out the attacks as boys slept in their dormitories, during piano lessons and even in a sick bay.

Lowe, of Charlotte Street South in Bristol, sexually assaulted six boys at Westminster Cathedral Choir School and four at Ampleforth College in Ryedale – between 1978 and 1984.

Judge David Beddoe bailed Lowe ahead of sentence on February 5 and warned him: ‘It is inevitable that you will receive immediate sentences of imprisonment for the offences that you now stand convicted of.”
