“Around June 2016, Ofsted was conducting an inspection at the school; Mr. Tucker was sitting in the senior leadership team munching on garlic bulbs while smelling of alcohol.”

Mr. Tucker answered, “What does it mean to chunk out your bean?” The student responded, “Red-eyed and high,” to which Mr. Tucker replied, “I can guarantee you I am not.”

A teacher notified a superior in November 2018 that Mr. Tucker’reeked of alcohol’ and that she was not shocked because Mr. Tucker has a habit of coming to school on Thursdays smelling of alcohol.
