Deputy headteacher Adam Williams, 35, jailed for affair with pupil
MARRIED deputy headteacher Adam Williams has been jailed for two years after conducting an inappropriate relationship with a pupil.
The father-of-two, of Ruardean Walk, Oakley, had performed sex acts with the teenager at the school and in the teacher’s car.
They were eventually caught when the victim’s sister found incriminating text messages and pictures on her brother’s mobile phone.
A jury heard that the stress brought on by the revelations caused the boy’s parents to lose their business and home, and for his siblings to suffer at school.

After a jury convicted 35-year-old Williams on all eight charges against him, the judge told him: “I have seldom seen someone in such complete denial of what you obviously had done.”
The pair had met on gay networking site Grindr when the boy was just 16-years-old. During the affair, they exchanged 6,500 text messages.
Williams, who was head of the sixth form at an Oxfordshire school, had denied all of the allegations, claiming the messages were part of a “fantasy relationship” which the boy was using to blackmail him.
The boy and school cannot be named for legal reasons.
Jurors returned guilty verdicts on seven counts of sexual activity with a child by an adult in a position of trust and one of being a person in a position of trust inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
Judge Julian Hall passed a two-year jail term on each count, all to be served concurrently.
Williams will also have to sign onto the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years and be placed on the Safeguarding Vulnerable People register.
The boy’s mother said after the sentencing: “Our family life has been one of no joy or laughter for the last 10 months.”
