Wallace v Secretary of State for Education  EWHC 109 (Admin) The Appellant held the role of "Super head" of five formerly under-performing schools ("the Schools"). This case arises from his relationship with IT company C2 Technology Limited ("C2"), which in the period 2008 to 2013, received payment for services of more than £1 million from the Schools. The Appellant had not disclosed the fact that he had acted as company secretary to C2 between 1999 and 2004 and that his friend and partner was the company director. There was a clear, undisclosed conflict in existence and this relationship was only identified following an internal audit in 2013.
Anwar v National College for Teaching & Leadership  EWHC 2507 (Admin), Phillips J The Appellants successfully appealed the finding of the National College for Teaching & Leadership ("NCTL") that each had been guilty of unacceptable professional conduct following a "Trojan Horse" investigation. The case is likely to be of interest to regulators and practitioners involved in separate sets of related disciplinary proceedings with the same underlying facts; Phillips J's judgment, highlights the need for a careful assessment of disclosure of materials between the two (or more) cases.
