We were advised by a senior naval officer not to send our son because of serious child safeguarding concerns and a bullying culture. All those in my sons intake who went through Welbeck described appalling bulllying. My goddaughters brother is there at the moment and had witnessed horrendous bullying from older students. His mother complained and he was allowed to choose who he shared a room with, to placate her a bit. She considered withdrawing him but he wanted to stay as he hadn’t personally suffered.
