I'll keep this short. Thanks if you bother to read & then advise.

This girl, same age. Hectored & harrased him for 2yrs. School has a file on events. I don't know if this is pertinent, & I honestly am not deriding children with learning difficulties, but she has mild autism. This has allowed her to behave abysmally at times, & excused.

As soon as she set eyes on Peter (not real name) it started. I tried to encourage him to just ignore, detach & concentrate on college work. Eg's of behaviour towards him : -

Walking up to him when he's talking with class mates, interupting & demanding his attention. When she didn't get it, she started to call the attention of security saying that he was bothering her. According to Peter, they immediately took the girl's side. Witnesses tried to tell security what happened. They weren't interested.

Disrupting the whole class. Shouting over the teacher. Her centre of attention is Peter. No one else. She's merciless.

Telling Peter in front of others that her father knows what's going on & he's coming into the college to "kick his head in".

Switching his computer off in class causing him to lose a whole lessons work. There's more, but it'll become repetative

I know it sounds pathetic & impossible, but it is going on & we're at our wit's end. Also, quite a few abusive texts. God knows why she's got his number! He's kept them, & I'm printing them off. He's anxious about going to college incase the dad follows through with physical violence. He's disheartened in class because he feels like the last 2 yrs are carrying on. He really needs to suceed here. He's retaking maths & english. He performed abysmally in his gcse's.

His older sister is in her final 6th form year at the same scool. She's gone to Peter's old form tutor & told him whats turned up. He just put his head in his hands in exasperation. He wasn't helpful. They're not his problem any more. He's got enough on his plate.

Has anyone got any advise? I just feel like crying.

Should've said. They're both 16.

Not really got much advice but I would say the college need to be involved and in the loop.. But no experience of FE/HE here so limited help.
