A former teacher has been charged with 47 offences following a police investigation into historic sexual abuse at a prestigious Altrincham Catholic grammar school.

Alan Morris, 63, of Rivington Road, Hale, has been charged with 41 counts of indecent assault, one count of outraging public decency and five counts of inciting gross indecency.

The charges relate to offences alleged to have been committed between 1972 and 1991, involving 29 boys aged between 11 and 17 during their time at Saint Ambrose RC College in Hale Barns.

John Dilworth, Head of the CPS North West Complex Casework Unit, said: “There is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and that it is in the public interest to prosecute this case.”

Morris is due to appear at Manchester City Magistrates’ Court on July 25.
