Teacher to be sentenced over pupil

A senior female teacher who had a sexual relationship with a teenage pupil will be sentenced today.

Suzanne Harrison, 38, a former director at Suffolk One in Ipswich, admitted four sex offences against the 15-year-old girl over a seven-month period at an earlier hearing at Ipswich Crown Court.

The offences are believed to have been committed while she was working at a former school in Colchester.

Harrison also previously taught at Otley College, Suffolk, before joining Suffolk One which has hundreds of students aged 16 to 19.

At the previous hearing Judge David Goodin warned Harrison that a prison term could not be ruled out.
