A PE teacher was suspended yesterday after pupils reportedly discovered pictures of him posing naked on gay porn websites.

Sam Handley, 25, is a teacher at the boys-only Harvey Grammar School, in Folkestone.

According to the Sun, he was unaware that the link to the porn website had spread around the school via Facebook and mobile phones and turned up for lessons as usual, before being sent home by the deputy headteacher.

The images showed Handley fully naked with an erection, while a profile described him as “straight . . . but not shy about showing off his body”.

When questioned about the images, Handley told the newspaper they were not pornographic.

A school spokeswoman said: “The principal yesterday suspended a member of staff following certain allegations and an investigation is under way. It would not be appropriate to make any further comment at this time.”
