Former PE teacher faces prison after admitting carrying out a string of sex attacks on vulnerable schoolgirls

A former PE teacher faces prison after admitting carrying out a string of sex attacks on vulnerable schoolgirls over a 17-year period. 

Glyn Jones, 57, admitted carrying out a catalogue of sexual offences against girls as young as 14 over a 17-year period.

Jones admitted seven indecent assaults against six victims, who were 16 or under at the time, between 1979 and 1996.

The vile sex predator exploited his position as a popular and respected teacher to clinically target youngsters, a court heard.

Ruthless Jones even attacked one victim when he was a 19-year-old trainee teacher, Norwich Crown Court was told.

The sick pervert taught at Lynn Grove High School in Gorleston, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, and Hellesdon High School, Norwich, before he emigrated to Australia.

Jones was charged with the historic offences in January last year following an in-depth investigation by Norfolk Police after cops were tipped off.

The serial offender initially denied doing anything wrong but changed his pleas just before his trial was due to start.

Richard Kelly, prosecuting, said Jones abused his position of trust to sexually assault the young girls.

The sly master cunningly groomed his victims by showering them with gifts and flowers in a bid to make the impressionable young girls feel ‘special’.

Jones took one girl, who was 15 or 16, in his car to popular Norwich beauty spot Mousehold Heath before sexually assaulting her.

The sex-crazed maniac also attacked another girl, who was about 14, on a school trip to a packed local amusement park.

One victim said she was now a mum with daughters of her own and realised just how ‘incredibly wrong’ Jones’s behaviour was.

Mr Kelly said another girl was sexually assaulted on a school ski trip when she went to his room.

Jones is set to be sentenced at Norwich Crown Court tomorrow.
