Accused: Teacher Jenine Saville-King
A teacher took a pupil to her home for 'hundreds' of sex sessions while her husband was out at work, a court has heard.
Jenine Saville-King would collect the 15-year-old boy and drive him off for regular trysts.
The pair began seeing each other after chatting over the Internet and exchanging texts before the relationship became more intense.
Saville-King, then 26, would take the boy to a car park where they would kiss but they soon began going to her home for all-day petting sessions, it was alleged.
The boy, who is now 18 but cannot be named for legal reasons, said: 'It was a regular thing, two or three times a week. I had strong feelings towards her.'
Saville-King, an assistant head of year at the school, began having sex once the boy turned 16 but the relationship soured when she fell pregnant, although she denied the child was his, St Albans Crown Court was told.
The boy told jurors: 'I was upset. I was not sure if it was mine or not.'
When the boy left the school, Saville-King kept working there.
Their relationship continued while she was on maternity leave and they continued having sex, once just three days before the baby was born.
The teenager got a job where he met his current girlfriend and tried to end the affair but Saville-King began harassing him, it was alleged.
He said: 'I wanted to move on. She was not happy about it. I kept saying, 'Please, please don't do this to me'.'
Saville-King, of Hook, Hampshire, denies seven charges of sexual activity with a child and one of abuse of trust.
The trial continues.
