Pupils at top boy's school Harrow discovered saucy snaps of their art teacher and former model, Joanne Salley, on a memory stick in the school's photography lab.
The shots - which had been taken by another member of staff, fellow art teacher Fiona Corthine - were soon doing the rounds of the £29, 670-a-year school - and beyond.
Miss Salley, 32, was said to have left the school in tears after students confronted her with the images.
Despite this, one pupil told reporters: 'The pictures are wicked. She's looking properly fit in them.
'They went around like wildfire. Everyone was texting or bluetoothing them. She must be the most popular teacher in Harrow's history.'
The school's headmaster Barnaby Lenon issued a statement saying: 'Joanne Salley is a long-standing and successful art teacher at Harrow who has in the past been a model.
'Photographs of her modelling were taken by a professional photographer who also teaches at the school. The pictures were stolen without the agreement of the photographer, who holds the copyright. The matter is being investigated.'
What do you think? Should Miss Salley continue teaching at the school after such an incident? Or is it all just an amusing incident which will soon be forgotten?
