Drugs drama at city schoolDec 15 2006
By Samantha Clarke
TEN children and a teacher were taken to hospital after a drugs drama at a Coventry school.
The year 11 students - aged 15 and 16 - complained of headaches after a bottle of liquid amyl nitrate was opened and spilled during a lesson.
The incident happened at Stoke Park Community Technology College, in Dane Road, Stoke.
A pupil is understood to have taken the drug into school.
All 11 people were taken to University Hospital in Walsgrave.
The drug is popular in nightclubs where revellers call it "poppers" and use it to get high.
A spokeswoman for Coventry City Council described the incident as minor.
She said: "Staff reacted quickly to deal with the matter and as a precautionary measure some children were taken to hospital.
No one was admitted to hospital and the children returned to school.
"The children's parents were informed and staff at the school are investigating the matter."
The news comes on the back of a report published earlier this year which revealed three per cent of pupils at 15 secondary schools across the city had admitted using crack cocaine.
That figure went up to four per cent at some schools, including Stoke Park, equating to about 40 of its pupils.
Although sometimes prescribed for medicinal purposes, amyl nitrate is widely available in clubs and often used to heighten sexual arousal.
Effects of inhaling it include facial flushes, perspiration and an acceleration of the heart rate, creating a rushing sensation in the head.
Jane Freshwater, deputy head of Stoke Park, said: "It was a school matter and was dealt with internally by the school.
"I have no further comment to make on the incident."
