A man has been banned from teaching at any school in England after he told his student to buy "s---ty" underwear, and asked her inappropriate questions revolving around sex.

The 37-year-old man, Harry White, taught at The Sixth Form College Farnborough in Hampshire. A Teaching Regulation Agency conduct hearing found that he developed an "intense and inappropriate relationship" with a student.

The relationship reportedly continued between 2015 and 2017 while she was at college, and after she had left for university.

The panel said that his actions were "consistent with the characteristics of grooming."

White had told her to buy "s---ty" underwear, met her outside of college, asked her sexual questions and had touched her, reported BBC. He also asked her if she watched pornography and narrated a graphic scene from "House of Cards" 'in which an "older 50-year-old politician had performed a sexual act on a 19-year-old girl."

He also asked the girl if she performed sex acts on herself, and during a college music trip he shared a sexual dream he had, the panel heard, according to Daily Mail.

The panel was shown a text message the girl sent another student. It read, "I was gonna keep this to myself but on Thursday night he was quite drunk and there was point when he hugged me and we both slowly pulled away and I thought he was gonna kiss me."

Even after she left for university, he sent her gifts, asked her to send inappropriate pictures in her underwear, and performed a sexual act in front of her on Skype.

It was only after the former student and her parents wrote to the college about White's behavior that the allegations came to be known.

In August 2019, he was dismissed from the college for gross misconduct. The Sixth Form College Farnborough said that once it knew about the allegations it "acted decisively and a matter of urgency."

The college said in a statement, "The College treats all allegations and complaints of this nature with the utmost seriousness, placing the highest priority on the safeguarding of all students in its care. Such instances are very rare.

"However, whilst we are confident that the disciplinary procedures followed on this occasion were supportive, robust and effective, the College has taken the opportunity to reflect on the issues raised by this case and is, accordingly, reviewing its staff training, policies and practice."

White had denied all the allegations. But the panel noted that they found the student to be "a compelling and credible witness" while "there were a number of inconsistencies in his evidence."
