Second pupil removed from school where one student ‘could be as old as 30’

Another pupil has been removed from a secondary school where a first pupil’s age is being investigated following reports that he could be as old as 30.

The first pupil, in Year 11 at Stoke High School in Ipswich, is reported to be an asylum seeker who claims to be 15 and joined the previous term.

A spokesperson for the school said:

“We cannot comment further on individual cases but we have followed Government and local authority policies and guidance, as we do for any admissions matter.
