Help

A head teacher credited with turning around a school's fortunes has been suspended after an investigation into its finances.

Police have been called in to investigate at Quintin Kynaston School in St John's Wood, north-west London.

Jo Shuter, head teacher since 2002, said the allegations were "malicious and vindictive".

She was named head teacher of the year at the 2007 Teaching Awards and appointed CBE in June 2010.
