Former Garth Hill School pupils urged to contact police over investigation

STUDENTS and employees who attended a Bracknell school around 40 years ago are being asked to get in touch with police to help them with a sex offence investigation.

Earlier this week, Thames Valley Police released its appeal asking for anyone who was at Garth Hill School, Sandy Lane, in the late 1970s and early 1980s to contact them.

A spokesperson said: “It’s in connection with an investigation into allegations of non-recent sex offences against girls aged 12 to 15.

“Officers have been investigating the offences by tracing former students and other potential witnesses in the case.

“A 66-year-old man was Windsor was arrested in November last year and has been released under investigation.

“Anyone who was at the school in the late 1970s and early 1980s who has any information that may assist our investigation should call 101 quoting reference number 43170093913.”
