A TOP private school has been rocked by a 21-page dossier on "rape culture" compiled by pupils allegedly abused by classmates.

Some have accused the top private school in London of creating an environment where “harassment and abuse was a fact of everyday life for female students”.
The 21-page document includes 76 entries from pupils, The Times reports.
Allegations include pupils left traumatised and humiliated after being forced to perform sex acts on boys against their will.
Others claim they were threatened with sexual assault and jokes were made about students being "gang rape" victims.
The documents also accuses teachers at the school, which allows girls in at sixth form level, of not investing in their "emotional being".
It also says a male teacher bought a sex toy for a pupil and made inappropriate comments about his sex life.
A video allegedly shows an older pupil dragging a girl to a group of younger pupils and asking "who wants first dibs".
There is also reportedly a picture on social media of a pupil projecting an image of a female student on to a whiteboard to ask the teacher if they would "smash or not".
One dossier entry read: “I was raped by a very close friend at Westminster.
“He invited me over to his house, got me super drunk … when I physically resisted and asked him not to.
“I remember not having the strength to fight back. It was awful and I’m still dealing with the mental pain that event caused me.”
Another wrote: “I was sexually assaulted more than once by a friend at Westminster. I felt isolated and anxious afterwards, knowing I wasn’t physically safe around my friends and often coming to school exhausted after a sleepless night.”
One girl claimed: “It makes me sad that these boys who have had so many opportunities and come from such privilege were so unaware of human decency.
"It wouldn’t surprise me if every girl in my year had a story concerning some form of sexual harassment”.
The dossier is understood to form part of a "private school bubble" where boys would allegedly try to impress each other with sexual abuse and harassment.
Claims have also been made against St Paul’s School, Dulwich College and Latymer Upper School in London.
Robert Halfon, Tory chairman of the Commons education select committee, has now called for an inquiry.
He said: "The allegations that are coming out from all these different schools are horrific. There needs to be rapid reform in terms of respect and treating female students properly but also in terms of safeguarding.
“The safeguarding measures at all these schools need to be looked at to find out what’s gone on and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Westminster School was founded in 1394 in the precincts of Westminster Abbey with around a quarter of its 750 pupils paying almost £14,000-a-term to board.
Notable former pupils include Louis Theroux, Helena Bonham Carter, Nick Clegg, A.A. Milne, Nigel Lawson and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Headmaster Gary Savage said the school had launched a probe into "our ethos and values" last year that will examine "treatment of issues around race, sex and gender".
He added: "We take the very concerning issues raised by current and former pupils extremely seriously.
“The safeguarding of every single pupil in our care is the most important thing we do as a school.
“Behaviours and attitudes like these have absolutely no place at our school, or in society in general, and we are determined to help and support pupils past and present who are affected.”The school is based within the precincts of Westminster AbbeyCredit: Alamy
