Ex-Queen Ethelburga boarding school teacher banned for pupil relationship

A former teacher who had a sexual relationship with a sixth form pupil has been banned from teaching for life.

Dr Howard Britton, 64, taught economics at fee-paying boarding school Queen Ethelburga’s School, near York, between 2001 and 2005.

A disciplinary panel heard his sexual relationship with the girl began on the day of her final exams.

Dr Britton stopped teaching after the relationship ended due to his “disgust” at his behaviour, the panel heard.
