The Needleblog site has a database of convicted paedophiles in relation to institutional paedophilia.
Aleister Crowley went to such schools and reported that such things went on quite a bit, even that his room mate used to sell himself to older boys. He had himself removed from that particular school when he reported the facts to a member of his family.

I suppose the trigger could be that people are taken from their families and put into a place where there may be little emotional support, at least in the old days. Finding some form of comfort in another person of the same sex would probably occur quite easily then develop from there.
