Lesbian Teacher Banned for Having Sex with Student


London: A games coach at a top boarding school has been banned from teaching after she had lesbian sex with one of her 15-year-old pupils at her parent’s house.

Lauren Chandler, 24, who was also a teacher and residential house tutor at the private £7,400-a-term Dover College, Kent, began the inappropriate relationship in October 2012.

The pair exchanged inappropriate and flirtatious messages and pictures referring to each other as ‘babe’ and ‘beautiful’ with repeated use of ‘heart’ symbols.

Chandler then invited the girl, referred to as Pupil A, to stay at her parents’ house over the half-term holiday, the National College for Teaching and Leadership heard.

A professional conduct panel found Chandler had slept with the girl and engaged in two-way sexual touching.
