  3. Matthew P says :

    £9999 is more than enough reward to run a school managing over 100 teachers and the same number of support staff, managing a budget of millions and having the entire social system (politicians, industry, parents), with massive expectations of all the students passing out with 10 grade As.

    BTW – it’s been changed to six-figure in the article…

    • AngryTechnician says :

      Yes, it was changed by about 11am on the day, though they sneakily never changed the ‘last updated’ time. Note, however, that they only fixed it in the main body text; the picture caption still says five.
