On the advice of the Thames and Chiltern Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), two men have today been charged by police with committing a number of sexual offences against a number of children, more than 40 years ago.

CPS Thames and Chiltern Complex Casework Unit lawyer, Luke Bulpitt, said: "I have today advised charging Roland Peter Wright, 81, of East Burnham End, Crown Lane, Farnham Royal, with seven counts of incitement to commit gross indecency and 18 counts of indecent assault.

"I have also advised charging Hugh Henry, 80, of Pomeroy Close, Amersham, with two counts of incitement to commit gross indecency and eight counts of indecent assault.

"This case involves sexual assaults allegedly committed by the two men, who were teachers, against 12 victims, all young boys at Caldicott Preparatory School, Farnham Royal, in Buckinghamshire, between 1959 and 1970."

Wright and Henry are due to appear at Aylesbury Magistrates' Court on 21 December 2011.
