Nick Clegg's former headmaster, 83, convicted of abusing five young boys at top prep school

Roland Wright was today convicted of
abusing five boys while he worked at
Caldicott Prep School in the 1950s and 60s
Nick Clegg’s former headmaster was facing jail yesterday after being  convicted of sexually abusing pupils over a decade at one of England’s leading prep schools.

Roland Peter Wright molested five young boys at Caldicott Prep School after luring them to his room to watch television and drink whiskey in his bed.

He taught French and sport at the all-boy school and targeted older pupils, aged 12 to 13, who were gifted athletes.

Now the 83-year-old paedophile faces jail after being found guilty on 10 counts of indecent assault and two counts of indecency with a child between 1959 and 1970 at Aylesbury Crown Court.

Wright was headmaster of the prestigious school – which is a  popular ‘feeder’ school for Eton and Harrow and charges annual fees  of £20,000 – for 25 years, retiring  in 1993.

The Deputy Prime Minister spent five years at the Buckinghamshire school from 1975, several years after the abuse occurred.  (more...)
