The head teacher at the Purcell School in Bushey has resigned.
No reason was given. His deputy replaces him. Parents have been informed and a short notice was placed in the local newspaper:
Peter Crook stood down on Tuesday and Paul Elliott was installed by governors as acting headmaster at the Aldenham Road school.
What on earth is going on? No-one’s saying.
It is highly unusual for a head to resign in the middle of term and rumours have begun to circulate. A fuller statement is required from the governors if they don’t want the tabloids to come sniffing the Bushey air.
