'Christmas cancelled' at Trojan Horse school, tribunal told
The former assistant headteacher of a Birmingham school at the heart of the so-called Trojan Horse scandal described how Christmas was "cancelled" as the school became more "Islamised".
Hilary Thompson, previously assistant head at Nansen Primary in Alum Rock, said celebrations from non-Islamic faiths were "squeezed out" – just two months after the failing school was taken over by Park View Educational Trust in October 2012.
Mrs Thompson's claims as she was today giving evidence at a National College for Teaching & Leadership (NCTL) hearing, where five senior teachers from the Trust face allegations of professional misconduct.
