Please may I ask your advice/ opinion. I was looking for schools for my daughter 7+ and there is an independent prep school ( a bit far from us) which offers bursaries and I am really tempted for my daughter to apply because I think she would thrive there. However, there is now a vacancy going in this school which would be a promotion and an exciting step for me. I wander if I apply for 7+ and put my application for the job - will the Headmaster look at my application as "Oh, he wants to get the kid into the school...that is why he applied". Will my application look manipulative because of this reason? In this case, I would not apply for 7+ ( she can apply for 8+ next year) and just put the job application for now as combining two things might be damaging for my application? 7+ place is a hard decision for us anyway as we cannot afford fees, we can only consider it on a bursary basis...I would really appreciate your opinion. Thank you.
