A deputy headteacher is accused of underage sex misconduct with 16-year-olds
Jonathan Norbury, 35, is alleged to have got a 16-year-old girl drunk in a park and persuading her to sexually touch him.
A disciplinary hearing in Cardiff was told, the man had the teenager take off her clothes before “making her” walk home in early morning hours.
Norbury said at the hearing the girl known as Girl C was 18 and a “willing participant” in what happened.
The man faces six allegations, three of which relate to teenage girls.
The father-of-three denies doing anything without Girl C's consent
Cadi Dewi, Case Presenter, asked the defendant: "Taking her into the woods when she was just 16, getting her drunk on alcohol, taking her clothes off, engaging in sexual touching then making her walk home at midnight – would you say this is unacceptable professional misconduct?"
The father-of-three answered: "If she was under 18, yes. But she was over the age of 18."
"I don't know what her motivations are for saying this, but she was a consenting adult at the time.
He added: "She was a willing participant. There was no force."
The teacher also denies 'inappropriate' text messages to another girl
The Education Workforce Council hearing in Cardiff heard Norbury was in a short-term relationship with the girl before “it fizzled out”.

The teacher from Swansea admitted to another relationship with Girl B, which he agreed was “inappropriate” due to a nine-year age gap between the two.
He denied sending her improper text messages, as well as sexually touching and kissing the 15-year-old.
Norbury claims the girl turned 18 before they had a “fling”.
He said: "We would meet up, but she was a consenting adult. She was 18. Never younger than that."
Norbury was alleged to have had sex with a virgin pre-16-year-old, which he denies
He denied another allegation of having sex with a virgin Girl A on his parent’s lounge floor before she turned 16.
Ms Dewi told the hearing Norbury now stands accused of having sex with two girls before they turned 16 as well as performing oral sex on a third when she was 16.
Norbury denies all claims of sexual contact with three underage girls between 2005 and 2008.
