London council slammed for spending £95 million on school with ‘toxic culture’

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has come under fire for handing £95 million to a school with an allegedly ‘toxic culture’.

Opposition councillors have criticised the council (RBKC) for spending so much money on Holland Park School – which is now being investigated after more than 100 pupils signed a petition complaining about the school’s allegedly toxic atmosphere.

The school’s finances have previously faced criticised after it spent £15,000 on luxury paint and £6,000 on scented candles between 2016 and 2019, according to School’s Week.

The academy has also been criticised for paying its headteacher Colin Hall £280,000 a year, which makes him one of the highest-paid teachers in the country.
