A Head of Year position has become available at my school. I have more academic experience over pastoral, but it is something I’m becoming increasingly interested in. There is no prospect of progression within my dept, and I do not wish to move schools, so I’m considering applying for this HoY post. The school has asked for an email to explain why I would like to apply for the job - am I right in thinking that this is ‘why I want it and why I’m a good fit for the role?’ type statement? Also, any recommendations/links to reading material for the application and/or a realistic insight into the nature of the role will be greatly appreciated!
