Remember that it's a summary, so don't write too much. Experience of managing parental expectations = 3 years successful experience as form tutor years 7-9, with parental thanks. Attention to accuracy and detail = write approx 250 progress reports each term, Head of Year praises accuracy See the sort of thing? I'd leave out any personality things, let them see that when they meet you. I should imagine that your major problem could be if they ask for experience of boarding; you'll just have to talk about your success in your pastoral role in current school. Don't forget to check out the Welcome thread on the Independent Forum, and do a search there for "application" to get some more tips. You'll need to come out in your application letter about the wide contribution that you hope to make to the co-curricular life of the school. Best of luck! ____________________________________________________________ TheoGriff. Member of the TES Careers Advice Service.
