Dear Theo- I have my first ever interview and it is at a private school... HELP!

Discussion in 'Independent' started by AmaCol, Mar 7, 2009.

  1. Hi Theo,
    I am currently in my NQT year at a small rural school. I have applied
    for the few posts that have come up and have been invited along for an
    interview at a top all girls private school. As my current school is
    very small and rural none of the other teachers or SMT are in a
    position to offer me much advice and I am starting to worry.
    I have been asked to attend an interview that will "last most of the
    day" I know that I will have to teach a lesson and also answer some
    questions. Could you please give me some pointers as I am concerned I
    won't do myself justice on the day.
    Thank you,
    Ama

  3. Been wondering the same about you Theo. Bet we'd know each other by reputation at least.....
     
  4. Neither was I! GSA and HMC. Hard to hide if you're a girl in the HMC though.....

    Working with Fiona, Jen or Ann . . . Know all three, have the mobile number of 2 of'em. . .

    That looks really weird!
    What I meant was that I know them really well. And thinking of it, F hasn't had a retired Deputy, so not her. Unless you're the one who's recently not retired but moved to another role in education . . . but you don't sound like her.
     
  7. Actually I didn't mean a GSA/HMC school. I meant one then the other.

    It's a good game this.
    My turn now.....
    Which HMC region were you in?

    The smallest geographically.
    (Do you do the cryptic crossword? I drive Mrs TG crazy with it).
     
  9. OMG sooooo hard.
    Is that how you know Fiona and Anne then? cos they were admitted to that division when the montrous regiment marched in??

    Have I got it?
    Oh though, is Prague in that division? Do overseas attachments count to extend the geographical area...

    Was always a T2 girl myself. Rubbish at crosswords. Mr Sad does indeed drive me mad doing them. Maybe its a man thing.
