A former teacher at Eton College has been charged with sexually assaulting three boys.

Matthew Mowbray, 48, was dismissed from the public school in Eton, Berkshire, after his arrest in May 2019.

The prestigious school charges fees of more than £40,000 a year.

Mowbray appeared at Slough Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday charged with 11 offences, including seven counts of sexual assault relating to three alleged victims.

He is also accused of voyeurism and three counts of making indecent photographs.

Mowbray, of Locks Heath, near Southampton, was granted bail and will next appear at Reading Crown Court on 31 March.
