A school teacher was discovered lying naked in bed with a 17-year-old pupil, a hearing was told.

Elizabeth Smillie was allegedly found with the female student in her flat after inviting her over with a school friend to drink alcohol.

The classmate, who was referred to as Pupil B and also attended Gleniffer High School, in Paisley, Scotland, said she stumbled upon across the pair when she was looking for her friend.


‘I opened the door and Elizabeth Smillie was naked on top of her,’ she told The General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) hearing, which was being held in Edinburgh.

She added: ‘I could only see the teacher. It was incredibly awkward.’

Pupil B also alleged Miss Smilie had picked up her friend from outside a party.

The hearing was also told the music teacher kissed the girl, who she was apparently dating, and held hands with her previously.

Miss Smilie, who was not at the hearing, has denied four allegations, including ‘repeatedly engaged in sexual activity’ with Pupil C and kissing a 15-year-old girl, referred to as Pupil A, outside school when she had been drinking alcohol. She was also accused of sending X-rated Facebook messages with the same pupil.

The allegations span from 2010 to 2012. Miss Smilie could be banned from teaching if the GTCS rules against her. A spokesperson for Renfrewshire Council said: ‘We took immediate action as soon as we became aware of incidents taking place. ‘The employee no longer works for the council.’
