    Mowbray denied nine counts of sexual activity with a child in front of a packed courtroom

    Detectives had been investigating allegations for 10 months after initially arresting the teacher in May 2019.

    Mowbray was accused of nine sexual assaults on young students over a 10 year period while working at the world-renowned school, which had previously been attended by Princes William, Prince Harry and Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

    Today the jury of six men and six women was selected and then sent away before the trial could be opened.

    Mowbray, of Locks Heath, Southampton, Hampshire, was expected to stand trial at Reading Crown Court over a fortnight with as many as 28 witnesses expected to give evidence.

    Seats in the public gallery were reserved for five members of the different complainants’ family members and four seats were reserved for the family of Mowbray.

    The 600-year-old £40,000-a-year Eton College, founded by King Henry VI, lies just across the River Thames from the Royal Berkshire town of Windsor.

    The college – which hosts 1,300 pupils – charges £12,900 per term and is renowned for its academic excellence with a third of the boys attending the top Oxford or Cambridge universities.

    The trial is set to be opened by prosecutors John Price QC and barrister Charles Ward-Jackson.
