A lawyer representing 26 parents at the school recently issued a complaint to the U.K.’s Department for Education saying the school’s teaching of race relationshas already become so extreme as to amount to a serious, systemic and ongoing breach of the Independent School Standards.

There are also allegations that anti-Semitic remarks were made about Jewish parents at a meeting of the school’s entire faculty of teachers earlier this month, just days before Appleby’s resignation announcement.

Teachers did not refer to parents by any of the words you’ve mentioned,” the spokesman told the outlet. “然而, 太太. Appleby and the school were concerned that the question contrasting the responses to racism and anti-Semitism could cause offense to members of the community, and this was addressed immediately.

We are committed to building and sustaining a diverse, equitable and inclusive school community and firmly believe this will lead to a better future for all our children,” the spokesman added.
