    I am going to apply for a job at an independent prep school and have been looking at their list of extra curricular activites.
    I have though of some new actvities I can offer that are not sporty but also a couple of existing things I would love to be a part of. Do I put all of them in my application or just the existing ones?
    What do you think folks?

  3. My opinion, for what it's worth, would be to put all of them.

    You need to show them that you are willing and able to make what many schools call a 'Generous Contribution' to their extra-curricular programme.

    So say what you currently do, say what you are keen to introduce that tjey don't do, and say what things you would be delighted to help out with from their list.

    Go to the independent Forum and read the Welcome thread there pinned to the top of the forum. I assume you have read the advice in our Welcome thread on here?



    Best wishes

    It is really important that you show yourself as willing to go the extra mile.

    Looking forward to you starting a new thread called Dear Theo, I got that job'
