An Oxford teacher who was forced to leave one school after calling a transgender pupil a girl, and another after saying Muhammad was a false prophet, will appear at a professional conduct hearing.

Joshua Sutcliffe – who taught at the Cherwell School, Oxford, and after that a school in London – will appear at a professional conduct hearing held by the Teaching Regulation Agency between January 9 and 13.

The Cherwell School suspended Mr Sutcliffe in 2017 after he praised a group of pupils by saying “well done girls” – despite one of them identifying as male.

The academy said his ‘misgendering’ flouted its equality policy.

Mr Sutcliffe left The Cherwell School and reportedly began teaching at a London School soon afterwards.

Shortly after beginning work at the new school Mr Sutcliffe was suspended because of comments made in a video he uploaded to YouTube.

In the 12-minute video, titled ‘what does the Bible say about false prophets?’, the former teacher said Muhammad is a false prophet.

“I know this is controversial and I know that people might be offended by what I’m saying but I do it in love and because I want to speak the truth,” he says.

“I believe Muhammad is a false prophet, I would suggest that Muslims have a false understanding of God because they’ve been led by a false prophet.

“Jesus is the only true prophet because he is God in the flesh, he is the voice of God, he brings true revelation and understanding because he is God.

“We have other false prophets in this nation, never mind those that are following the teaching of Muhammad.

“What about someone in culture like Russell Brand, he is teaching a generation how to think.

“He’s got this multi-faith idea and that all faiths lead to the top of the mountain.”

In a separate video on his YouTube channel, viewed almost 14,000 times, Mr Sutcliffe said he was bullied by the ‘LGBT mafia’, which got him kicked out of The Cherwell School.

He then discusses the second sacking, saying “this time it was an Islamic mafia.”

“Both camps used bully tactics and intimidation and they’re getting people sacked all around the country,” he said.

“This is very dear to my heart, I love education, I love teaching and I really enjoy teaching maths.

“The sad thing for me is that I’m not allowed to be me, I do my job excellently, I teach maths very well and I understand the curriculum.

“The problem is that we’ve got the LGBT mafia which got me kicked out of one school and the Islamic mafia who got me kicked out of another.

“Teachers are scared stiff of these bullies.”
