This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was refused by West London Free School.

Dear West London Free School,

I would like to know how much West London Free School paid Randstad Education to recruit both Head Thomas Packer and Deputy Head Sam Naismith.

As Packer left after only two years and Naismith left very suddenly after less than three years, was the fee paid to Randstad Education considered to be value for money?

Yours sincerely,

H Gardner
