  1. Hi there,
    I realise this thread began some time ago but I was wondering if you could contact me with the interview questions as interviews are not my strong point. I am also applying for a head of year role.

    Thanks for your time,

  2. I am also applying for a HoY position and would be extremely grateful for any suggestions/help regarding interview questions. My email is patrick.mccarthy@hotmail.co.uk
  3. Hello,
    I am also applying for a head of year post. If you still have them, please could you forward me the interview questions you mentioned in your thread.
    Many thanks,
  4. Hi, any chance of emailing me a list of those possible interview Questions..? Currently applying for a HOY post.

  5. Hi can you please send them to me as well please? hollie_a@hotmail.com

    This drives me mad - no wonder there is a real problem of leadership and management in schools. You develop your vision and ideas first, you realise you're ready for the job... You don't just show naked ambition, go for any old post and hope that you can work it out later, and even ask for your application to be written by an online TES committe. *** pathetic. Truely pathetic.
  8. This original posting is years old. One thing I would point out is if you cannot write your own application then perhaps you are not ready for the job. I have just applied for a Head of Year job in my school and I wrote it myself. I used the job spec to help me and what I have done and could offer the school.
    I am waiting to find out if I am successful and am called for interview but if not at least I did the work myself.
    I don`t want to come across as rude and unsupportive but think about why you want to apply and what you can offer.
    I hope you are successful.

    The OP didn't come back to share the good/ bad news ...
    Is that the 'take, take, take' of naked ambition?

    I hope the OP now lives under a bridge with holes in their shoes and stains on their vest.

    Maybe that's why they've not had internet access to let us know how they got on with their committee-generated letter of application...

    I'd like to think that they all went for the same job . . . .
    Asking for help and researching and preparing answers for possible interview questions is fine but if you can't write your own letter, well . . . .
    Get over to jobseekers!
  13. Well I wrote my letter of application all by myself....and guess what? I have an interview! So folks it can be done! [​IMG]

    Very funny! Perhaps you could insert the word "the" between "of" and "year".

    Wandering if you’re got hold of any questions, I know you posted this
    awhile back. I am apply for a Assistant Head of Year.

    Or maybe you have some tips you could give me.

    I have already put through my application so I just need some idea of the style
    of questions they may ask, so that I can prep myself in the right route.

    I would really appreciate any help.

    Thank you

  18. Hi

    I am also looking for a selection of Qs that may be asked in a Head of Year interview... any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance.
