A school has been branded a ‘high security prison’ after it installed 112 CCTV cameras to spy on its pupils.

The sheer number means that there is now an average of one camera per 10 students at Stoke Park School and Community Technology College in Coventry.

The school – which has 1,090 pupils aged 11-18 – has 33 CCTV cameras covering the outside and 79 fixed inside the buildings and outside classrooms.

Governors spent around £10,000 on the cameras in the past 12 months after a spate of break-ins and thefts.
