Teacher sacked 'for having lesbian affair with pupil - which father discovered when he spotted love bite on girl's neck'


A misconduct hearing was told that art teacher Nia Davies, 31, began a "sexually-motivated relationship" with her pupil and shared a bed with her on trips to London galleries


A female teacher has been sacked following an alleged affair with a 17-year-old girl - after her policeman father spotted a lovebite on his daughter's neck, a hearing was told today.
It heard tutor Nia Davies, 31, allegedly began a "sexually motivated" relationship with her teenage pupil while teaching her including sharing a bed on trips to London galleries.
Miss Davies is accused of taking her on weekends away to conduct their alleged affair in secret - and is now facing being struck off.
A misconduct hearing was told media and film lecturer Davies exchanged "thousands" of inappropriate messages with the girl during their ten-month relationship.
The police investigation led to Davies being arrested and bailed. But the hearing was told she was never charged.
Her college in Llanelli, West Wales, launched their own investigation which led to Davies' dismissal in August last year.
Ms Dewi told the hearing: "Davies' conduct amounts to inappropriate misconduct, when you take into account her role as an educator and the girl's role as a learner."
The girl, now 19, was described as a "outgoing and bright pupil" - and was identified on as "Learner A" when she gave evidence.
She told the hearing she had never been in a sexual relationship with Davies.
The teenager denied she had previously admitted to police, her father and mother that she had kissed her teacher - saying they must have been "confused."
She said: "We sent texts but they were social texts. They were only in the tens, not the thousands.
"I never admitted kissing Nia to my father, it's completely untrue. That conversation never happened and I can't explain it.
"We've had a conversation about my sexuality before, and I think there's a lot of confusion to be honest.
