Exeter headteacher Steve Maddern has resigned with immediate effect. It comes after it was revealed Mr Maddern was being paid more than £150,000 a year. Governors at West Exe Technology College described the last two months as 'a difficult period' for those connected with the school.
In a letter to parents of children at the school Peter Scott, Vice Chair of Governors, said the situation had damaged the school's reputation.
Not only was this damaging for the good name and successes of West Exe but also led to the distraction of school business, which is to teach and support students to the highest level.
