WE WERE TALKING ABOUT MATHS, SAYS SCHOOL BOSS ‘CAUGHT NAKED’ WITH SEMI-CLAD HEAD
A FORMER school governor allegedly found naked with a headmaster has insisted they were merely talking about maths.
Keely Huxtable, 33, has been accused of being in a compromising position with Richard Tattersfield, 45, when he should have been at Dame Elizabeth Cadbury Technology College in Birmingham.
The married head has now been suspended after his wife allegedly caught him sprinting from his bedroom in his boxers with the “naked” Mrs Huxtable, who is the school’s chair of governors, in his bed.
But Ms Huxtable – labelled a Cameron Cutie after she became the youngest woman to be selected to stand for the Tories in the 2010 General Election – branded the claims “rubbish”, saying the couple were “fully clothed and working”.
She said: “The school had been found to be weak around humanities and maths and we had to re-write the school’s management plan, that’s what we were doing.”
The alleged affair came to light after Mrs Tattersfield claimed she found the pair together in early December last year.
Mrs Huxtable’s husband only found out about the alleged incident when Mrs Tattersfield telephoned him to say that she had caught the pair in bed together and that the affair had been going on since January last year.
He said his wife only admitted she’d been sleeping with Mr Tattersfield after he confronted her in December.
He later discovered the pair had gone for a two-day luxury break at a hotel-spa over Valentine’s Day, claiming it was a ‘school conference’.
The couple say it is a “witch-hunt” and they were working on “strategic leadership planning” when confronted by Mr Tattersfield’s wife, Jan.
Mrs Huxtable says that their relationship has “never been about sex” and they became close because of a “passion” for education.
The headteacher was suspended on December 15 after Birmingham City Council launched a probe into “serious allegations”.
Mrs Huxtable, 33, resigned the following day as chair of the governing body at the state school. She is not being investigated but it is understood her relationship with the headteacher forms a significant part of the council investigation.
Sources claim the probe includes an allegation the couple were found by the head’s wife at a house he was renting after they separated.
It is claimed he was in his boxer shorts, while his chair of governors was naked in bed.
The school was informed of the allegations the same day and the headmaster was suspended the following Monday.
A Birmingham City Council spokesman said: “On the basis of the seriousness of the allegations made, the head teacher was suspended in December, pending an investigation which is currently under way. The chair of governors also resigned in December.”
It is understood the school has received allegations that the headteacher had used the Cotteridge property to meet Mrs Huxtable on a number of Friday afternoons PROBE: Head with his wife and (
Keely in November and December, during school hours.
On December 12, sources claim Mrs Tattersfield went to check on the Cotteridge house and discovered her husband and Mrs Huxtable.
It is also claimed Mrs Huxtable once sent a poem, entitled How Do I Know I Love You? to the head.
Sources alleged she told her husband – local Tory councillor Timothy Huxtable – that she was leaving him on November 1.
Mrs Huxtable once had political ambitions of her own being selected by the Conservative Party in 2007 to stand in the 2010 General Election.
Hovever, she failed in her bid to win the seat of Northfield, which was retained by Labour MP Richard Burden. DENIAL:
