A school spokesman said drug tests would be carried out "with proper parental consent, should it be deemed appropriate".

Headmistress Lucy Pearson introduced the policy after concerns that some pupils took illegal substances.

Fees at the school are up to 10,000 pounds a year. Around 1,400 boys and girls aged four to 18 attend the school.
