In a letter sent to alumni on Wednesday, St. George’s School announced that Bob Weston, Associate Head for External Affairs, had been place on leave in January after receiving “secondhand allegations” regarding the administrator’s “boundaries with students”.

The allegations and Weston’s future at St. George’s is pending the outcome of an independent investigation.

St. George’s first found themselves on the front cover of the Boston Globe back on December 15th in a story written by Bella English that included former students from the 1970’s that alleged they were sexually abused.
