A 75-year-old former teacher has been charged following allegations of non-recent sexual abuse at a school near Tunbridge Wells.

The offences are reported to have happened between 1979 and 1985, and concern alleged victims who were pupils at Holmewood House Prep School in Langton Green.

In May 2024, a man, from St Austell, Cornwall, was charged with four counts of indecent assault and five counts of gross indecency with a child.

On Tuesday 11 June, he appeared before Maidstone Magistrates’ Court where he pleaded not guilty to all counts. He was bailed to a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on 9 July.

Anyone with information which may assist the investigation should contact Kent Police on 01622 604100, quoting reference 46/YY/12142/23.
