WILLIAM Bain, 62, targeted the boys in empty classrooms, a photography dark room and also his own private flat at the school
A PAEDOPHILE teacher who sexually abused five boys at a top private school has agreed to be struck off.
William Bain was working as a housemaster at Keil School in Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire between 1989 and 1995 when he targeted his victims.
The 62-year-old was finally brought to justice after one of the former schoolboys found out he was still working as a teacher and contacted police.
Bain was immediately suspended from his £22,000-a-year teaching job at Glenalmond College in Perthshire when the allegations emerged.
In May this year he was sentenced to six and a half years in jail after pleading guilty to five charges of using lewd and libidinous practices while employed as a teacher.
Disgraced Bain has now agreed to be banned from the teaching profession by The General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) next Monday.
The GTCS removal with consent order state: “On 19 April 2016 at Glasgow High court, you were convicted of the following offences on indictment: on various occasions between 1 September 1989 and 9 April 1992, both dates inclusive, at Keil School, Helenslee Road, Dumbarton you William Graham Rannoch Bain, did, while in the course of your employment as a teacher at said school, use lewd, indecent and libidinous practices and behaviour towards a pupil there.”
The allegations add: “On various occasions between 15 December 1992 and 14 December 1995, both dates inclusive, at Keil School, Helenslee Road, Dumbarton and at a wooded area near to Loch Awe you William Graham Rannoch Bain did, while in the course of your employment as a teacher at said school, use lewd, indecent and libidinous practices and behaviour towards, a pupil there.”
Further details explain how Bain committed a string of similar offenses during the same timeframe.
The allegations conclude: “In respect of the above offences, you were on 17 May 2016 sentenced to six and a half years imprisonment at Glasgow High Court.”At the time of the abuse Bain was a teacher at Keil – one of Scotland’s leading fee-paying schools, and was subsequently promoted to housemaster.
He targeted boys aged between 11 and 12 in empty classrooms, a photography dark room and also his own private flat at the school.
It was revealed the predator targeted some of his victims several times a week with one former schoolboy revealing he was abused a total of 50 times.
Following Keil’s closure in 2000, Bain moved to Glenalmond College.
Bain will be removed from the teaching register next week during a GTCS panel hearing. SOURCE
