Regester was rumbled after a parent at the school found the controversial remarks and reported them.

In one post, he wrote: ‘One seriously mixed day. 2nd set Y10. The kids are C****…Y9set2 excelled themselves to piss off. One little scrote.’ 

Another read: ‘Yesterday was about ripping new c**** & a********. Today: ripping off heads & s******* down necks! All in the name of education.’

He was also found to have shown a ‘lack of tolerance and respect for the rights of others’, as well as providing false information to a recruitment agency and lying, the DfE found.

He has since been banned for life for ‘unacceptable professional conduct’ and ‘conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute’.

In a statement, he wrote: ‘I may have expressed intolerance towards regimes and practices that themselves promote general intolerance.

‘It is my belief that I, my family and friends, have the right to live in a society that is free from oppression.’
