A school in London that is owned, funded and run by the Saudi Arabian government teaches students that Christians are ‘pigs’ and Jews are ‘monkeys’, a former teacher has alleged in an employment tribunal claim.

The Times of London reports that Colin Cook, who taught English at King Fahad Academy for 18 years, cited Arabic teaching materials used at the school to confirm his belief that the academy was “institutionally racist”.

“The schoolbooks presently in use describe Jews as ‘monkeys’ (or apes) and Christians as ‘pigs’,” said Cook, who was dismissed from the school in December.

After speaking to senior staff about his concerns, Cook, 57, claims he was told: “This is not England, it is Saudi Arabia.”

He is taking action against the school for unfairly dismissing him and because he alleges he suffered racial discrimination for not being a Saudi.

Neither the academy’s director nor any of its staff were willing to comment on Cook’s claim when contacted by The Times but the school’s bursar said it was preparing a response to his statements.

King Fahad Academy was founded in 1985 in west London to provide education to the children of Saudi diplomats and other Muslim families in London.
