Hi, I have made a few applications in the past (not a huge amount) and have been invited to interview at all of the state schools (including a couple of top grammars) I have applied to but none of the independents. I'm happy to work at either a state or independent school, it depends more on the philosophy and location of the school (as I'm a bit restricted geographically and there are quite a few independents locally) but obviously this is something I have noticed. I'm looking for some advice on what the biggest reason might be that independent schools are not pursuing my application. In addition, could anyone tell me if it's better to post or email applications if both are indicated, or whether it doesn't make a difference. Thanks for your help!
