The arrested teenager was released with what was termed a ‘community resolution’.

West Midlands Police said officers were sent to the scene to ‘offer reassurance to students and staff’ after a fight began at around 9am yesterday. 

Teachers were also present to help usher pupils away from the school.

One 16-year-old student, accompanied by her mother, said the drama happened as Year 11 students sat an exam.

She said: ‘Police were there outside the gym as soon as we finished our exam. Our last exam is on Friday.
