A British school called police to remove a star student who is so "obsessed" with studying he refused to leave the library.

Jamie Gagliardi, 18, was expelled from Ifield Community College in southern England, after refusing to leave the library, the news media reported.

The school accused Gagliardi, who is expected to be a grade a student of being "obsessed" with learning after school and said they called police because the student was causing a "nuisance."

Gagliardi, who was forced to call his mother to pick him up, said, "I have been punished for wanting to do well. I am a hard working and dedicated student, and this could have such an impact on my future."

The student went to the library despite being banned from the premises for the day as punishment for disrupting the school principal during a meeting to request special meetings --- review.

Marilyn Evans, director of school administration, said: "He became loud and angry that he could not study after school."

Gagliardi is described as a "best student", which wants to do well on tests, but said he had been "causing a nuisance and a disturbance on the property," adding: "He is obsessed with making the revision after school ."

A police spokesman confirmed that officers were called to the school to remove a "disruptive" student who refused to leave the premises, but said Gagliardi will not face charges.
