The pupils, aged 16 and 17, flew to Ghana on the trip that was meant to give them the “opportunity to experience life in a developing country”.

The girls and their teacher, who cannot be named, were understood to be recovering from their traumatic ordeal in a British hospital on Sunday night.

The compound where the incident happened

They landed back in the UK in the early hours of Sunday morning.

They were part of a larger group of ten schoolchildren who paid £1,200 each for the trip.

The school, which also cannot be named, partners a West African volunteering charity that supports disadvantaged Ghanaian children.

Pupils stayed in guesthouses within a “secure walled” compound and gardens a few minutes’ walk from a local beach. The dormitory-style rooms house up to six guests at a time.

A Ghanaian caretaker and private security team also live on the site in a separate staff block.
