Fat cat academy bosses told to rein in mega‑salaries

Head teachers and academy trust leaders in the state sector are collecting “fat cat” pay packages with some pocketing nearly half a million pounds a year, a Sunday Times investigation has found. Perks can include company BMWs and all-expenses hotel stays.

In 112 academy trusts — more than a third of those examined — 128 staff were paid more than the prime minister’s salary of £150,000, and 39 staff in 34 trusts were paid more than £200,000, according to the findings of the biggest investigation to date into school leaders’ pay. Six of the top-paying trusts operated just one school.
