Prom night students at posh school went on pub crawl with three teachers

PROM night students at a posh school went on a pub crawl with three teachers, a disciplinary hearing was told.

The Year 11 pupils — aged around 16 — and staff partied at three city centre bars after the do.

English teacher Liam Cocks gave one pupil a lift home at 4.30am despite drinking six pints of lager and some gin.

The story emerged after a complaint by the mum of a pupil at Cardinal Langley Roman Catholic High School, Manchester.

A Teaching Regulation Hearing in Coventry said Mr Cocks put the teen at risk. It said the school had done too little to “discourage teachers” from drinking with kids.

Mr Cocks was found guilty of misconduct but spared a ban for the “one-off error of judgment”.

He had already quit.

The school said staff “fell below” expected standards of behaviour.
