College Principal Liz Myles has told Wessex FM it was difficult to tell parents and students about former Vice Principal Chris Birkhead who pleaded guilty to downloading indecent images of Children.

Allegations were made against Mr Birkhead in June 2011 and he was suspended.

He resigned when an internal investigation started.

The college say there’s no evidence he used college IT equipment inappropriately, and the charges relate to images on his personal lap top.

The 52 year old from Capstone Road, Bournemouth is due to be sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court on the 16 of November.

Liz Myles, the new Principal told Wessex FM's Luke de Costa staff at the College breathed a sigh of relief when it was revealed the indecent images were downloaded onto his own personal computer, outside the classroom and off College premises.
