Underley Hall was an independent residential school for boys operating between 1976 and 2012. It closed down following an Ofsted inspection which deemed the school to be inadequate.
An investigation began in 1997, however this stopped when the key alleged abuser committed suicide. A more recent investigation commenced under the name ‘Operation Tweed‘, investigating allegations of physical and sexual abuse between the 1970s and 1990s. Derrick Cooper, former owner of the school was found guilty of one count of assault and one count of child cruelty in a trial which concluded in March 2018.
