Girl bought cannabis from classmates in St Simon Stock

A secondary school has taken action after a 14-year-old girl bought £10 of cannabis from two pupils in Year 9 during class hours.

One pupil at St Simon Stock in Maidstone, who bought the drug, has been excluded while a further two girls are in the process of finding new schools.

Head teacher Brendan Wall revealed the two girls had brought in marijuana after finding it at one of the girls' homes and are now facing the consequences of their actions.

He said: “We discovered a drug incident in school. We have a zero tolerance policy on that and therefore one of the students was excluded.

“It was the end of a long line of suspensions and we were trying to change her behaviour but she is going. It was the last straw.

“The other two were very naive and brought drugs into school. They are in the process of getting new schools.”

The two girls who sold the illegal substance have not been excluded, but Mr Wall and the girls’ parents have agreed it would be best for them to leave St Simon Stock, in Oakwood Park.

He said: “It makes their position untenable with other students.

“These are two good kids who found the drug and stupidly brought it into school.”

The father of the teenager who has been excluded felt the two other girls should have suffered the same fate as his daughter following the incident on Friday, November 3.

The father, who did not want to be named, said: “There was a group of girls and one was my daughter’s friend.

“They were egging her on to by cannabis and she caved in and bought some for £10.”
