A police investigation into the allegations of fraud was dropped
The head teacher of a Nottingham school at the centre of allegations of financial irregularities has resigned.
Max Kay has left his post after being suspended from Bluecoat School in Aspley for the past 15 months.
An independent inquiry found evidence of what it called "fraudulent activity" over the use of government funding.
A police investigation was launched but then dropped after the government said it did not wish to pursue the matter any further.
Earlier this week the school's former site manager Kevin Darby, who was also suspended after raising the original concerns in 2007, was sacked.
Both men were subject to a separate investigation over gross misconduct.
Mr Darby was given a warning for misconduct after the investigation but was sacked for talking to the media. He said he intends to appeal against this decision.
The Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham confirmed it had received Mr Kay's resignation and would, along with the school's governors, move quickly to appoint a new head.
The school declined to comment as Mr Darby's appeal was ongoing.
