A former teacher at Eton College faces trial in November accused of sexually assaulting three boys.

Matthew Mowbray, 48, was dismissed from the school following his arrest in May last year.

He is charged with 11 offences, including seven counts of sexual assault relating to three alleged victims, voyeurism, and three counts of making indecent photographs.

He was not required to attend a plea and trial preparation hearing at Reading Crown Court on Tuesday, which was held over Skype.

Judge Heather Norton said Mowbray faces a seven-day trial starting on November 16.

The court heard the Crown Prosecution Service has instructed John Price QC, while Mowbray's legal team also plan to hire a QC.

Mowbray, who lives in the village of Locks Heath, near Southampton, is on conditional bail and is yet to enter any pleas.
