Drama teacher struck off for life after begging ex-pupil for sex and drugs

Former teacher Robin Kyne, 54, has been banned from teaching for life following a sexual relationship with one of his former pupils.

The 54-year-old had been a married drama teacher in 2004 and was made assistant principal of the college in 2007, leaving the role in 2010.

An anonymous student came forward about the relationship between themselves and Kyne, alleging that it took place in 2007, culminating in inappropriate behaviour during drama lessons, LeicestershireLive reported.

A Teaching Regulation Agency made the decision to ban Kyne from teaching for life, with the board hearing the former drama teacher had gotten the student's contact information while at school, claiming to contact them about homework.

Contact from Kyne, the pupil says, was not usually about homework and following their departure from college, the contact increased and "very quickly became graphic and sexual in nature".

A total of 467 pages of messages were presented to the panel and showed an exchange between the pupil and Mr Kyne on Facebook between July 5, 2007 and January 16, 2010.

One message revealed Kyne "had a bit of a crush" on the pupil and another message where the teacher admitted "there were times when I could have just pulled you behind the curtains in the studio".

He noted though that he "never would have" as "that would have crossed the line".

The panel also heard that Kyne had sex with the student in October 2007, noting that the pupil would "visit his house when his wife was away."

Kyne appears to have also demanded the pupil "get me loads of drugs" and threatened to break off the relationship if the pupil did not do so.

The panel found that Kyne's behavior was a "serious departure from the personal and professional conduct" of the board's standards.

Concluding, the panel found that Kyne's actions were "deliberate" as well as being "calculated and motivated", leading to his indefinite suspension from teaching in any school, sixth form college, youth accommodations or children's homes.
