Deputy Head - workload

Discussion in 'Personal' started by newsforu, Mar 13, 2011.

  1. I am an Assistant Head (Secondary) working 50-55 hrs per week + some holiday time (but will do extra if needed) and am looking for Deputy Head jobs. I have read that average DH workload is 53hrs but that about 25% do 60 hrs, and top 10% do 65+ hrs. I don't want to end up working 70 hours per week as a Deputy for £4000 extra. How can I broach this subject with prospective schools without sounding work-shy? Can a deputy head have work-life balance?
