London, May 24:

A British teacher who spent two years trying to seduce a male pupil less than half her age has been banned from every school in the country.

Catherine Rayne, 35, a geography and history teacher at an East Sussex school, pursued the boy from when he was 15, sending him gifts, texts, Facebook messages and a letter inviting him to start a "romantic relationship", Daily Mail reported.

She was a friend of the boy's parents, but at one point Rayne visited the family home when the pupil was there by himself, a professional conduct panel heard.

The boy tried to telephone his father thrice, saying he felt uncomfortable and compromised being alone with the teacher.

She later texted the pupil to say "the offer is still open", and the boy's father made an official complaint to the school.

Rayne admitted engaging in "inappropriate behaviour" beginning in September 2009, when the pupil was 15. She used to give him private tuition at her house.

In September of that year she visited the boy's bedroom and asked him whether he wanted to be "just friends".

The same month his father complained to the school and Rayne was formally warned. But in March 2011 she sent a handwritten letter asking him to begin a "romantic relationship".

She resigned when the boy's father sent that letter to the school but still sent the boy a gift.
