A prank that saw a stripper perform in front of sixth formers at a top public school in England has been condemned by teachers.

Pupils at Marlborough College in Wiltshire booked the male stripper for Muck-Up Day - a tradition in which students play pranks on their last day before exams.

The Sun newspaper reported the stripper was dressed as a sailor and performed his act in the school's central courtyard.

The stripper, named only as Ross, told the newspaper: "I didn't know I would be performing at a school until I got there. I was told it was going to be for a girl's birthday.

"At the end of the day it was just a prank, and I didn't take all my clothes off."

The co-educational school charges boarding fees of nearly £35,000 a year and former pupils include the Duchess of Cambridge and Samantha Cameron, the wife of British Prime Minister David Cameron.

A spokeswoman said: "This was an inappropriate prank that was not condoned by the school."
