He even sold wife for sex!

A PE teacher who was jailed for run­ning a BROTHEL af­ter class has been found guilty of pro­fes­sional mis­con­duct.

Tim Blake-Bow­ell, 51, pimped out six pros­ti­tutes – in­clud­ing his ex-wife Lisa, 40, who used the name “Brandy”.

He was jailed for nine months in 2009 for run­ning the brothel from a rented flat in the cathe­dral city of Can­ter­bury, Kent.

Blake-Bow­ell moon­lighted as a pimp while work­ing as a teacher at King Ethel­bert School in Birch­ing­ton, near Mar­gate, Kent, be­tween 2004 and 2007.

He was found guilty of breach­ing the teach­ing code of con­duct when he ap­peared at a dis­ci­plinary hear­ing of the Teach­ing Agency in Coven­try.

The dad-of-two, who also hired him­self out as a male pros­ti­tute, was told he was in “di­rect con­tra­ven­tion” of the teach­ing code of con­duct.


Pre­sent­ing of­fi­cer Mary Page said: “The ex­is­tence of this con­vic­tion surely un­der­mines pub­lic con­fi­dence in the teach­ing pro­fes­sion and af­fects Mr BlakeBow­ell’s abil­ity to pro­vide an ef­fec­tive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment for his pupils.

“It is in di­rect con­tra­ven­tion of sec­tion eight of the code of con­duct, which state a teacher must main­tain rea­son­able stan­dards in his own be­hav­iour, al­ways try­ing to main­tain an ef­fec­tive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment and main­tain­ing pub­lic trust in the pro­fes­sion.”

The panel heard Blake-Bow­ell had been a “ded­i­cated teacher” at the 700-pupil school, which caters for chil­dren aged be­tween 11-16, where he was fa­nat­i­cal about hockey and cricket.

But af­ter work he sold his body and man­aged a team of six other pros­ti­tutes – in­clud­ing Lisa – from the rented prop­erty.

At his trial in 2009, Can­ter­bury Crown Court heard that Blake-Bow­ell was re­spon­si­ble for the fi­nan­cial side of the brothel, which was var­i­ously named “Gem’s”, “Pan­dora’s” and “Men for all Sea­sons.”

Lisa, 40, who had her­self worked as an es­cort in the city since 2004, was in charge of the day-to-day run­ning of the busi­ness.

She acted as a re­cep­tion­ist, worked out the ro­tas, in­tro­duced girls to clients and also pros­ti­tuted her­self.


Blake-Bow­ell ad­mit­ted a charge of con­trol­ling pros­ti­tutes for fi­nan­cial gain in July 2009 and was jailed for nine months.

He was re­leased af­ter serv­ing four months of his sen­tence.

Shortly af­ter his ar­rest in De­cem­ber 2007, he lost his job at the school.

Blake-Bow­ell, who at­tended the hear­ing, con­firmed he had given up teach­ing. He said: “I have no plans to re­turn to the pro­fes­sion.”
