‘Dangerous predator’ who sexually abused his young pupils at private school agrees to be banned from teaching

A former Aberdeen teacher branded a “dangerous predator” after he sexually abused five boys has agreed to be struck off.

William Bain targeted the five boys at a private school in Dunbartonshire, where he taught in the late 1980s and 1990s.

He moved to the school after eight years at Robert Gordon’s College in Aberdeen.

Bain – who went on to work at top boarding school Glenalmond College in Perthshire – was caught after one of his victims discovered he was still teaching and called the police.

He admitted using lewd and libidinous practices towards five pupils at a fee-paying school in Dunbartonshire between 1989 and 1995, and was jailed for more than six years in May.

Bain has now agreed to be banned from the teaching profession by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS).

At a hearing on Monday, the 62-year-old will be formally struck off.

During his court hearing, it emerged that Bain targeted boys aged between 11 and 12 at a fee-paying school in Dunbartonshire between 1989-1995.

The incidents happened in empty classrooms, a photography dark room and also his private flat at the school.

Bain worked in the north-east at Robert Gordon’s College from 1979 to 1987.

It is understood he was also a housemaster at the college’s Sillerton House, in Albyn Terrace, where boys aged eight to 18 boarded.

The school has previously stressed there were no allegations about Bain’s time working in the north-east.
