Ever since i started my new post in september i have been desperately unhappy. I was not told that there had been 10 hods in 11 years and numerous members of staff leaving with stress. After the first term i stepped down as HOD as it was near impossible with 3 frees and a whole new team. The problems have not really been solved i decided today to have a frank chat about leaving. I have already been in hospital and one two sets of antibiotics this term due to stress related illness (having been in perfect health prior to this). My head will not let me leave before easter now even tho i said i would rather give 3 months notice and leave in feb without having to go off sick. They say if i stay they will take some.pressure off but ive heard all of this before. Any advice? Thanks.
