A high school science teacher “who preyed on innocent girls for his own sexual gratification” was today told he faces a lengthy prison sentence.

Brett Meeds, 28, groomed three pupils aged 15 and 16 at Dereham Northgate High School and “abused his position of trust” by having sexual activity with them.

Prosecutors said the teenage victims, who cannot be named for legal reasons, “were the subject of sexual abuse on several occasions.”

Meeds was a science teacher at the school and Dereham Sixth Form College betweeen 2005 and when he was suspended earlier this year after allegations against him were made.

At Norwich Crown Court today Meeds, who used to live in Norwich but has been living in Orton Goldhay, Peterborough, pleaded guilty to two offences of sexual activity with girls and five offences of sexual activity with girls which breached his position of trust.

He also admitted two charges of possessing indecent photographs of two girls.

The charges all relate to a period between March 2008 and May this year.

He denied two offences of sexual activity with two of the girls and they were ordered to lie on the file.

Meeds had been on bail but was remanded in custody after his barrister Matthew Gowen did not reapply for bail.

He will be sentenced during the week beginning October 5.

Recorder Simon Spence told Meeds: “These are very serious offences. You have pleaded guilty and it will inevitably attract a lengthy custodial sentence.”

Prosecuting lawyer Lorraine Irwin said: “We are pleased Meeds has taken some responsibility for his crimes, as putting these vulnerable young girls through the ordeal of a trial would have been very traumatic for them.

“Meeds was in a position of trust as a teacher and abused this trust and preyed on these innocent girls for his own sexual gratification.”

Miss Irwin added: “Hopefully the victims can now begin to move on positively with their lives. We are grateful this case has reached a successful conclusion.”

Taught me Physics for a bit! It was sad really as everyone in the school and sixth form had known about what was going on for over a year before he got arrested and all, and it had been reported previously with no action taken... He was with another pupil but she was over 16 and wasn't actually teaching her at the time so it wasn't included in this case.

Still wierd to think we were all in a classroom with him :/

It really does defy belief that teachers think they will get away with this.
What goes through the mind of someone in such a position. "i know, il fondle a few kids, whos going to notice, i've never seen anyone get caught for this before, yeah this is a great idea."

It like walk in front of machine gun fire and hoping you wont get hit. Idiot.
(not to mention of course its wrong)

To be honsest, he should've just dipped it in the 16 year old. At least that way he'd only have lost his job and not have to live with the fear of becoming prison's latest rapetoy.

'were the subject of sexual abuse on several occasions' did he actually get done for rape or did they just chew him off or something. Im sure this happened at my school with girls who were around 16 and wanted certain teachers.

On a side note by spanish teach got put a way for a while for having loads of kiddie porn on his pc. Thats loads worse. He was a right *** too, so i was extra pleased when i found out

We had a bi-sexual PE teacher who used to like hanging around the showers and complimenting the boys on their muscles.

He'd dead now though, the idiot fell off a mountain.

None of the cases were rape. Was not just a "chewing off" as you put it, though :p

We had a pe teacher at high school about 6 years ago when I was there and he was known as a peado, thing is my sister is 16 years older than me and he was there when she was. He was suspended for looking into the girls changing room for swimming, his excuse was to check to see if they were all out.

The last I heard he was still there.


I loved it though because there was no proof and he came back and because everyone of the girls parents (bar one) weren't happy, when he came back they all handed him notes saying they weren't participating in the session because they weren't satisfied that the matter was resolved.

I think you'll find sexual activity with a 15yr old is statutory rape. So he's going to be in prison for a long time...

Well, yeah..shh. The pupils in question were consenting at the time though, even though they can't legally be. I'm not sure how they testified, though.

we had a case go the other way round at our school - basically shortly after leaving school we found out that a guy in our year married one of the music teachers......

thing is she was like 50-ish and he was 18..... however she'd been giving him 1-on-1 music lessons throughout the time he was at school and no-one really knows at what point they actually started seeing each other......... could well have started when he was say 15 or so....

Not sure what to think of this case tbh... - yeah girls can sometimes look older but 15 is still very very wrong..... you could maybe understand a 22 yr old student teacher falling for a 16 yr old in her last term (at best...) but wtf drives these people.... even an old looking 15/16 yr old looks 17/18 at best..... still too young for a 28yr old tbh....

I'm in my late 20s and felt slightly odd when I dated a 19yr old last summer - didn't last too long tbh....
