Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Mr Melling was the headmaster of Waverley Abbey School when my daughter was a pupil there about 21 years ago...he was found guilty of child abuse a few years later and we realised that she had been a victim of this too ..she has had an easting disorder which we put down to this abuse and would like to know more about the case

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.

You don't have a right to access to his previous convictions. A person's previous convictions are private I'm afraid.

You were perfectly entitled to sit in court at the time but you did not for various reasons.

The only possibility now is to research back numbers of the local paper at the relevant library who may have reported the case.

Can I clarify anything for you?

thank you...disappointing but I understand

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
You might well find something. These things over often reported.

No problem and all the best.
