Dear All (but especially @TheoGriff), I have experience in comprehensive, state grammar and independent schools; I'm a current HoD, applying for a few HoD and AHT jobs in independent schools at the moment, and have come across a question for a HoD job which I suppose might become more common in the future, but which I haven't seen before. Next to my current salary, I'm asked to indicate an expected salary too. I'm currently on UPS1 with a TLR2, and I'm tempted - as this is a large and prestigious place - to simply add £5k on to my current salary. I've looked up their last submission to the Charity Commission and there are 20+ employees on £60k+. Am I underselling myself? Is it worth me writing something like '£xx,xxx with progression based on performance'? Many thanks for your help. FCF PS: As a lurker for a very long time, I've made sure to write an Executive Statement and to get rid of the little green Martian before posting to @TheoGriff.
