Would you apply for a job at an academy? There is a job going locally at a school that I know to be well run and is graded Oustanding. It has an excellent reputation and a lovely feel to it. I fit the person spec and have always had it pencilled in as a school I would love to work in. However, it is applying for academy status. Politics aside, I don't know how this might impact on the school and the job, if I were to be successful. I am wavering now over applying. Another thumbs down for me is that it is a C of E school and I am quite atheist and against church schools really (but that's another topic). However jobs in well run local schools are hard to come by....... What do people think?
