I am currently a DHT but aspiring to be a HT at some point in the future. During a professional development conversation my head asked me why I wanted to be a HT. I gave my answer which I thought clearly explained my ambition to lead a school so that it becomes integral to the community and that all children achieve etc etc. However, the head said to me that my answer showed I wasn't clear on the difference between DHT and HT. She wouldn't tell me what sort of answer she was looking for but said I will know I am ready for headship when I know this. Anybody fancy helping me out on your views of the difference between headship and deputy?
