    Hi Theo!
    Well, after much thought, I'm attempting a move onwards and upwards. The post is an AHT position, I've been to the school, and have started my letter and ES. However, I've just loaded job description again and noticed it's online applications. Well it saves me a drive via the school on Monday morning I guess, though I thought handing it over would help connect face with name again. The biggest issue though is the fact it says I can only upload two pages of supporting documents, and I'm sat here with 2 sides of letter and 2 sides of ES.
    So would you advise making both one side each (without making font a daft size). It's hard to get all my experience onto that but I'll try and prioritise.

    I felt just sending letter maybe too lengthy and just ES would be too succinct without chance to talk about my philosophy and me.

    Thoughts most welcome, thanking you in advance!

    2 sides E.S. could be too much - one side is better . . . but that's not the problem here.

    2 sides for the letter is about right. You do not want to trim that down.

    Is there a box on the application form where you can include the E.S.? If not, you may have to jettison it . . . but making sure that your letter isn't too blurby, and addresses the main points that are in the E.S.

    Best wishes

    Ah ok! Thank you for such a quick response...
    Well, whilst pottering on laptop I've got it down to two sides using 10 font and being more succint in my answers. I now need to consider your advice - off to make a cuppa,...
