Just after some advice from those of you in the independent sector. Having decided (after much soul searching) to move from state to private I went to look round a lovely prep school. The school are advertising for two leading roles-maths and science and was encouraged by the head to apply for one of these, but do I have enough experience? Have only worked in the state sector so not sure of the workload for a lead in a prep school. I have been teaching for 5 years and have held a few small lead roles and I think I could do the job but do not want to ruin my change of securing the teaching post if I apply for a lead role and do not get it. I'm aware it looks unprofessional to say I'm interested in both positions on the application form but I am interested in both!
