A teacher has been sent to prison for six years after admitting having sex with three girls - two of them under age.
29 year old Christopher Drake from Ellesmere Road in Monton admitted two counts of sexual activity in a position of trust, 18 counts of sexual activity with a child, one count of taking indecent photographs of children and five counts of possessing indecent images.
He sexually abused three girls aged between 14 and 16.
Drake was arrested in his apartment block in the early hours of Sunday February 14th 2010 following reports of a disturbance.
Detective Chief Inspector, Bill McGreavy, said: "As a teacher, Drake was a role-model to young people and held a position of trust.
“He breached the faith placed in him by the school, pupils and their parents in the most appalling way.
“There are no excuses whatsoever for his actions and I hope his victims and their families can move forward with their lives and try and put these events behind them now that he has been sentenced.
"Greater Manchester Police, the school, the governors and local education authority worked together fantastically and our partnership was a true example of helping in the safeguarding of children."
