The headteacher of a failing boys and girls’ school in Neasden rated inadequate by an education watchdog has left his job.
Phil Hearne has stepped down as the executive principal of Crest Girls Academy and Crest Boys Academy in Crest Road.
The school was previously known as John Kelly Boys’ School and John Kelly Girls’ school until it was taken over by E-ACT in 2009.
Both schools moved into a £40m new building this month after merging to become Crest Academy.
Fiona Deegan, E-ACT’s previous principal director of academies, has been appointed as the school’s acting principal.
An E-ACT spokesman said: “Staff, parents and students were informed of the changes at the start of the academic year.
“E-ACT would like to thank Mr Hearne for his efforts during his time at E-ACT and we wish him well for the future.”
