A woman has been sentenced to a total of 15 months’ imprisonment for drugs offences which took place while she was working at a school in Banbury.
Rachel Ryan, aged 41, of Fford Bryngwyn, Gorseinon, Swansea, was convicted and sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Friday (24 November 2017).
She pleaded guilty to three counts of being concerned in the supply of class C drugs, three counts of importing a class C drug with intent to evade a prohibition/restriction, and one count of possessing a class A drug – heroin.
Ryan was working at a school in Banbury as head of Business Studies at the time of the offences.
Another teacher saw a student texting in class, and after seizing the phone, realised that the student was texting Ryan. The school examined the content of the messages and were concerned that they related to drugs. Ryan was suspended and Thames Valley Police were informed and an investigation began.
It was established that Ryan had been offering Valium for sale, as well as ordering class C drugs to be delivered to her address in Banbury.
She was arrested on 24 June, 2016, and a quantity of heroin was found in her possession. The total amount of drugs seized had a likely street value of about £1,900.
“Rachel Ryan used her knowledge gained as the head of Business Studies in her role as a drug dealer.
“This was seen in one of her text messages where she offered a discounted price if a drug user purchased more than 100 tablets.
“Rachel Ryan had trust placed in her as a teacher. She had responsibilities and should have been someone for her students to look up to. She abused that trust and has let her students down.”
