Here's the situation: I am HoD at a "bog standard" comp (sat aspiring to be good) I am 48 and my family's chief wage earner on UP3 + top 2 TLR <u>If</u> I want to finish my career elsewhere I need to move (I reckon) before I'm 50 I've seen a job advertised at an accessible private girls' school - salary would prob be equivalent to UP3 + TLR 1 I was privately educated myself, as was my husband and both our children went to private primary schools so I have no ethical difficulties with paid-for education. Questions: <ol>[*]Despite my personal experience of private schools, would they laugh in my face because I have only worked in "ordinary" state schools? I speak quite "posh" even when surrounded by my chavvy darlings![*]Do I want to/Should I apply? or am I just being tempted by greener grass? [*]I feel this might be a happy way to end my career - am I dreaming????</ol>Does anyone have any good advice? I have a fairly fragile ego and hate being knocked back!
