Protest grows over sacking

Parents protesting against the sacking of the headmaster at Cheltenham College have threatened to stop paying fees unless its governors resign.

They plan to withhold the money until Peter Wilkes, dismissed after the school dropped from number 47 to 205 in school league tables, is reinstated. An inquiry into the dispute is being carried out by Tony Higgins, chief executive of the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service. Fran Abrams
