Staff and parents from the suspended so-called superhead’s schools have staged protests demanding his return.
Greg Wallace – once described as one of education secretary’s Michael Gove’s “magnificent seven” – was suspended from his post in July.
The council is investigating allegations over the awarding of lucrative computer contracts to C2 Technology, which is reportedly owned by his boyfriend Tony Zangoura.
Mr Wallace started out as headteacher of Woodberry Down in 2001, and was deemed so successful he was drafted in to turn four more underperforming schools around – London Fields; Whitmore, Hoxton; Mandeville, Lower Clapton and Burbage, Hoxton.
They came under the umbrella of the Best Start Federation governing body who have also been stripped of their powers.
