From an article on BBC [4]

As an Industrial School, Haut de la Garenne was intended to solve problems of juvenile delinquency, by removing poor and neglected children from their home environment and placing them in a boarding school.

Solitary confinement

According to local historians, good behaviour was rewarded by treats, like cricket on the common and tea and cakes.

Poor behaviour led to deprivation of some sort, with flogging or solitary confinement for the worst offenders.

In the news

A body of a child was discovered in 2008. The existence became known to the authorities as result of an investigation into child abuse. The investigaton have already resulted in several arrests [1][2].
