Dominique Krief, 30, who worked with vulnerable pupils, preyed on the 14-year-old girls after taking them tohis home, Leeds Crown Court heard.
Krief, a former academy footballer at Leeds United, continued to meet one of the girl victims and sexual activity took place in his car. He also forced himself on a fellow teacher. Prosecutor Philip Standfast said Krief grabbed the woman in a sports room and tried to kiss her.
The court heard he then told her he was not going to let go of her until she told him she wanted to have sex with him.
The attack only ended when Krief, of Leeds, was disturbed by a pupil knocking on the door.The teacher, a semi-professional footballer for Harrogate Town and Farsley Celtic, pleaded guilty to six offences of sexual activity with a child and one of sexual assault.
At his sentencing on Friday the judge read a letter from Krief, who was engaged at the time of the offences, which said: “I took my dream life for granted and selfishly wanted more no matter who got hurt along the way.
“I accept full responsibility for my actions and the offences and make no excuses. I am full of guilt, shame, remorse and utter disgust at my behaviour.”
The offences came to light after one of the girls told a psychiatrist that Krief was the reason for her problems. Jailing him for four years and eight months, Judge Christopher Batty said: “You were sexually attracted to the children and you abused your position as a teacher in that school in order to get close to them with only one thing on your mind – your sexual gratification.
“It mattered not to you that they were your pupils. It mattered not that they were aged 14.
