A 16-year-old boy was due to appear at Bristol Crown Court today (Wednesday) after being accused of a serious assault on another boy at a Weston-super-Mare school last year.

The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, faced a charge of wounding and possession of an offensive weapon on a school premises after an incident in March 2016.

The school, too, cannot be named for legal reasons.
