A former teacher at a now-defunct Suffolk school has appeared in court to deny 34 alleged child sex offences.

Gerard Singer, 68, had worked as a languages teacher at St George’s School in Great Finborough in the 1980s.

Today (March 11) Singer appeared at Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing.

He is charged with 16 offences of indecent assault, 12 offences of gross indecency with a boy aged under 14, three offences of buggery and three of assault with intent to commit buggery.

The offences, said to have involved nine boys, are alleged to have taken place in the early 1980s.

Singer pleaded not guilty to all the allegations.

Judge David Goodin remanded Singer in custody until his trial, which is due to take place in June.

Singer, of Rue Alanoy, Elnes, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais, was arrested in France and extradited to the UK.

He is a French national.
