A former deputy headteacher living in Preston has been summonsed to court to face a total of 46 historic sex offences.


Grahame Brennand, of Calder Avenue, Fulwood, is accused of 22 offences of indecent assault and cruelty against a total of 11 victims.

The alleged offences were committed between 1973 and 1996 at St John’s Primary School in Baxenden, East Lancashire.

Mr Brennand is alleged to have indecently assaulted both male and female pupils.

The new charges come following existing charges put against Mr Brennand in March by Lancashire Police who brought 24 counts of indecent assault against 13 former female pupils at the same school. The offences took place between 1974 and 1988 when Mr Brennand was a teacher and then deputy head teacher at the school.

Investigating Officer Keith Hill from Lancashire Constabulary’s Operation Fervent Team is leading the case and anyone with any information should contact him on 01772 412972.

Mr Brennand is due to appear before Preston Crown Court on June 23rd 2017.
