London, July 20 (IANS) A well-known British school has been rocked by a sex and drink scandal involving 13-year-old students.

A boy and girl have been expelled from the 30,000 pounds-a-year Bedales for having a sexual encounter in a sandpit, Daily Mail reported, adding the other boy has been ousted from the school for stealing whisky from a store as part of the same incident.

It is being believed that the events occurred during the end of term party on the school’s extensive grounds.

The 120-year-old co-educational boarding school, based in Hampshire county’s Petersfield town, is renowned for its “liberal ethos and relaxed attitudes”.

None of the pupils wear uniform and teachers are addressed by their first name.

Bedales, with a roll of 462 pupils aged 13 to 18, three-quarters of whom are boarders, has been co-educational since the late 1800s.

Meanwhile, The Good Schools Guide says it is “still good for individuals, articulate non-conformists and people who admire such qualities”.
