Eton college teacher 'groped boys in school dorms during night visits'

AN Eton College teacher indecently touched boys in the school’s dormitories, a court has heard.

Police were called after pupils complained about “years of nocturnal ­visits” by Matthew Mowbray, 49, to their bedrooms at the prestigious school.

On his laptop they found thousands of indecent images, including of school­boys superimposed on photos of naked children from the internet, Reading Crown Court was told.

Prosecutor John Price QC said of the Berkshire school dorm ­visits: “Mowbray sat on the bed and would stroke the boys’ arms or, through the covers, upper legs.

"It is alleged this was done for his sexual gratification. In each case it was in the bedroom of a boy alone, partly clothed and in bed.

“Mowbray would sit on the bed when a chair was available. The door would be closed and the light off.

“If a boy switched it on, Mowbray would turn it off again.”

One ex-pupil told of several “lights out” visits when the master “stroked me from my knee to my groin”.

Mowbray, of Locks Heath, Hants, denies nine offences of sexual activity with a child, involving four Eton schoolboys and a girl who did not go there.

He has admitted six indecent image offences. Trial continues.
