Former department head Kato Harris, 36, is charged with three counts of raping a girl under the age of 16 in 2013.

He is alleged to have attacked the schoolgirl on three separate occasions on school premises between October and December 2013.

Harris, of Montague Road, Richmond, pleaded not guilty to all three charges during a hearing at Isleworth Crown Court.

He was bailed to reappear for trial on July 18.
