A games teacher has admitted having sex with a pupil she taught at an all girls private school.

Emily Fox, from Bath, pleaded guilty at St Albans Crown Court to four counts of sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl while in a position of trust.

The offences took place in 2012-13, when Fox, 26, was a teacher at the Royal Masonic School for Girls in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.

Fox was released on bail and is due to return for sentencing on 5 September.

Fox, of Alfred Street, is not allowed to attend the school or have contact with anyone aged under 16.

She will also be added to the sex offenders register.

The Royal Masonic School for Girls was founded in 1788 in east London to teach the daughters of Freemasons.

It moved to its current site in 1934 and has a mixture of day and boarding pupils.
