ACTING principal Malcolm Jacobs insists it is business as usual at Weymouth College, after more than half of his governors resigned.
It is understood the board became divided over the running of the college, following the appointment of an executive director, Paul Lardner.
This was followed by the resignation of the principal, Philip Done.
Eight of the college's 20 governors' positions are now occupied after 10 of them resigne, leaving just enough people on the board to be allowed to manage the college. According to corporation rules, 40 per cent of governors have to be present to make decisions, meaning all eight will have to attend future meetings until more governors are appointed.
"I would stress that the board is quorate and this does not affect the service we provide to our students, which continues to be of a high standard," said Mr Jacobs.
