Two pupils expelled from Merchant Taylors’ School after cannabis incident


TWO teenagers were expelled from Merseyside’s top independent school for allegedly dealing drugs.

The 16 and 17-year-old boys were expelled from Merchant Taylors’ school, in Crosby, following reports they had sold cannabis to a younger pupil.

He has been suspended after the incident, which happened outside school, came to light last week.

The school is now working with Merseyside police to discover if any criminal offences were committed.

Head teacher David Cook has also taken a special assembly in a bid to avoid rumours about the incident.

It is the second scandal to rock the £2,727-a-term school after it emerged in January teacher Hannah McIntyre, 24, was under investigation by police for allegations of sexual misconduct with a pupil.

Mr Cook said: “We have a clearly defined policy and do not tolerate any incidents involving drugs, both inside and outside school.

“These boys were found to be in breach of this policy and therefore have been excluded.

“Dealing with drug-related issues is a problem for every school in the country and for society generally.

“At Merchant Taylors’, we try to achieve the difficult balance between educating our pupils about the risks and harm drugs can cause, and safeguarding our pupils.

“We follow government guidelines in relation to drug and alcohol advice to all students.

“Annually, we invite an outside expert to come in and talk to the boys in Years 9, 10 and 11 about issues surrounding drug and alcohol abuse.

“Parents are also invited to a separate session.”

A police spokesperson said:

“Officers are working with the school to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident and to determine if any offences have been committed.

“No complaints have been made and we are working closely with the school to resolve this situation.”
