ANGRY parents called for the resignation of Steve McKenna, headteacher of Queen's School, Wisbech, after they attended a meeting to discuss its recent damning Ofsted report.
Up to 500 people attended Monday's meeting to discuss the next step for the school.
Numerous parents took to the floor asking why the head still remained in post despite Ofsted's findings, which heavily criticised leadership at the school.
The meeting had been called in order for parents to find out more about what the next steps would after Ofsted inspectors branded it inadequate in almost all areas.
There was outbursts throughout the meeting by parents who felt the school was not doing enough to address issues such as bullying, shortage of teachers, lack of homework being set, attendance and Mr McKenna's failure to respond to parents.
Parents were told a recovery plan had already been drawn up for the school by Cambridgeshire County Council which included bringing in a consultant headteacher who would work with Mr McKenna.
