The 51-year-old, of Westholme Road, appeared in front of magistrates in Worcester last Friday (7th March) where his case was sent to crown court.

He was released on conditional bail until a hearing on Monday 23rd June.

The voyeurism charge relates to an alleged incident at Evesham Leisure Centre on 17th July 2013. Afterwards, a 26-year-old woman complained to the police.

In a statement, Walkwood Middle School said the charges were “unrelated to children or his former role at the school.”

“Mr Doubtfire has not been at Walkwood since we were informed about the police investigation and formally resigned as head when the charges were brought,” it added.
