A schoolgirl's suspicious mum surprised her by coming home early — and was horrified to look under the teen’s bed and find her math teacher.
He and the 16-year-old had sneaked back to the house on the last day of term when the mother suddenly turned up.
She began searching the house for a boy — and was aghast when she discovered the 35-year-old skulking under the mattress.
She called cops who yesterday confirmed: “A man was arrested on suspicion of abusing a position of trust.”
A source said: “The pair had gone back to the girl’s house because they thought no one would be there. But the mum came home earlier than expected and caught them.
“She went into her daughter’s room and found the teacher hiding under the bed. It was a terrible shock. I think she had only come home to grab some lunch. The mum went berserk.”
The teacher cannot be identified for legal reasons. The school head — whose staff were last year rated “outstanding” by Ofsted — refused to say if the teacher had been suspended.
Officials there said: “The school is co-operating fully with the ongoing investigation.”
A police spokesman added: “Officers and a number of partner agencies are investigating the circumstances leading up to the incident.
“This investigation will also look at any safeguarding issues that need to be addressed and establish if any offences have been committed.”
The probe comes barely a month after maths teacher Jeremy Forrest, 31, was jailed for running off to France with a girl aged 15. He got 5½ years at Lewes Crown Court in East Sussex for abduction and sexual activity with a child. His victim, now 16, has vowed to marry him when he gets out.
