Dulwich head suspended

1st September 1995 at 01:00
An internal investigation has been launched at a leading independent school following the head's suspension by the governing body. Anthony Verity, head of Dulwich College in south London, has been suspended from all his duties and staff and parents notified.

The Cambridge-educated head has held the position since 1986. The school was ranked 51st in the performance league tables for independent school A-level results last week.

Bob Alexander, clerk to the college governors, confirmed that an internal inquiry is taking place. Christopher Field, the deputy college master, has been appointed acting head.

Mr Alexander said: "We hope this will be cleared up as quickly as possible. It will involve further meetings with the governors and could take up to half a term to be resolved."

Police are not involved in the inquiry.
