    Yes, some good (if pale!) points there by Lara.
    I'll add mine:
    Dear Theo- writing prospective letters to schools
    Best wishes

    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Seminars. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate.
    I shall be doing the Moving into Headship or SLT seminar on Saturday 17th March.

    Thank you Theo and Lara for your advice - I know I'm limiting my choices but it is my lot really at this point in my life!! I am however quite well placed for a few towns and a city so there are a good number of schools within reach. I guess, as you say, I need to be vigilant for job adverts, make my application top notch (I've been reading all the advice here...thanks again!) and be interview ready!! Easy peasy :) My plan then will be to sit in my Art job until they wheel me out ha ha!
