Controversial Durand Education Trust faces ‘misconduct or mismanagement’ inquiry by Charity Commission


A controversial trust set up by a south London academy school is facing an official investigation into whether there has been “misconduct or mismanagement” of its affairs.

The Durand Education Trust (DET), which owns land including a swimming pool and gym where proceeds are used to boost the executive headteacher’s pay to almost £400,000 a year, will be the subject of an inquiry by the Charity Commission.

It is responsible for the land used by its partner, the Durand Academy Trust, which runs a primary school in Stockwell, south London, as well as a boarding school in Sussex.
