A principal whose school community has split into warring factions has resigned.

West Auckland's Matipo School principal Paul Wright has seen a 65 per cent staff turnover since he started in October 2017.

The school's entire board of trustees resigned a year ago and the Ministry of Education appointed a commissioner, Dennis Finn.

Almost 250 parents signed a letter of no confidence in Wright two months ago.
