Parents at Bury Lawn have presented Gems with a list of demands
Pupils marched out in protest last week when the school's latest acting head Mark Olejnik was dismissed days before the start of A-levels. Mr Olejnik, who had been a history teacher and deputy head at Bury Lawn for 15 years, was replaced by Gems with Dr Sheila Kaye.
A group of 250 parents this week drew up a list of demands for Gems, including that the company give parents a say in the appointment and dismissals of staff and explain why it replaced Mr Olejnik.
The company said in a statement that it had greatly improved Bury Lawn's facilities and curriculum and reserved the right to make staff changes when it deemed them necessary.
