The school was set up in 1942 and looked after children aged between seven and 19 with learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

73-year-old David Hennessey of Westfields, Narborough, Kings Lynn has been charged with 16 counts of indecent assault.

The other men, Colwyn Baker, 70, of Morningside, Edinburgh and 61-year-old Nigel Putman of Kings Road, Slough, Berkshire are charged with a combined amount of 37 assaults.

A spokesman for Kent Police said: "These charges follow a lengthy and and complex investigation."

All three men are due back in court next month.
