POLICE are investigating after a teenage boy was assaulted at a secondary school.

The incident saw paramedics called to Brune Park Community School, in Military Road, Gosport at 1.20pm on Monday.

A spokeswoman from South Central Ambulance Service said one patient was taken to hospital.

Headteacher Richard Kelly said the boy, believed to be a 14-year-old, received injuries to his face and shoulder after he was pushed into a wall on the school stairs by another pupil. The boy was off school yesterday as a result.

He said: ‘An ambulance was called to the school following a bit of horseplay that got out of hand.’

Mr Kelly said that both boys had been spoken to and they had both admitted to pushing each other.

He said: ‘It was not a fight as some people thought it might have been. Teenagers sometimes are just teenagers.’

A spokesman from Hampshire Constabulary said: ‘It was reported to us at 1.30pm as an assault on a pupil by another pupil. There have been no arrests and we are investigating.’

One parent, who didn’t want to be named, said: ‘It is disgusting.’
