Ex-housemaster charged with indecently assaulting seven boys

A former housemaster from Bristol who worked at two boarding schools has denied sexually attacking seven boys.

David Lowe, 60, of Charlotte Street South, is charged with seven offences at Southwark Crown Court.

The attacks allegedly happened at Westminster Cathedral Choir School, central London, and Ampleforth College, North Yorkshire.

The boys were aged 10 to 14 at the time of the attacks between 1978 and 1984, the prosecution said.

Mr Lowe was a housemaster at Westminster Cathedral Choir School, an academically-selective fee-paying Catholic prep school in Victoria. He also taught at Ampleforth College.

Judge Anthony Leonard QC bailed Mr Lowe to appear for trial at Southwark Crown Court on 12 January.
