I have read your information on prospective applications and it makes complete sense. I would like to ask advice about my specific situation. I currently work in a very nice school an hour away but have found a school I am very interested in working in much closer to home which also offers my specialist subject at A Level which is relatively unusual. I currently teach physics but would like to teach geology alongside. This would also be the school my children could attend in a few years, I want my daughter to attend the school I work at for various reasons. I currently have no connections there but have received good feedback. Can you offer any advice to someone who has their heart set on teaching at a particular school? No position is currently advertised and I am content where I am but would like to maximise my chances of getting a job there in the future!
