Anger as William Parker governors are forced to resign

A SCHOOL’S governing body has been forced to resign as part of its move to become an academy.

The governors of William Parker School in Daventry were asked to dissolve their organisation after being summoned to an extraordinary meeting last Wednesday.

Just two of the former governors remain as new executive members were brought in following the school being given the green light to pursue its academy bid.

However, the move has angered some of the ousted governors who say they feel forced out as part of the move to attain the status with threats of action from the Government.
