My Dear Dame
As you have probably read Lord Adonis has been making noises about the salaries of Academy head teachers:-
"Calls are growing to cap the salaries of academy school bosses after it emerged more than 100 earn more than the Prime Minister at a time when school budgets are being cut and parents are being asked to pay for textbooks at state schools.
Department for Education statistics revealed 111 academy trustees - including headteachers and chief executives - earned more than £150,000 in 2015 and at least seven chief executives earned between £200,000 to £300,000.”
The 2016 Annual Report for the Holland Park School Academy show that Colin Hall and indeed his deputy fall into this category.In 2015 Hall's salary was £190-£195,000 RISING TO £220-£225,000 in 2016 an increase of some 15%.
His deputy, David Chappell's salary was £140-£145,00 in 2015 rising to £155-£160,00 in 2016 a rise of 10%
On the other hand, David Benson who leads the Kensington Aldridge Academy received a salary in 2016 of £110-115,000 half that of Halls and indeed unchanged from 2015
