Just visited a school where a Headship is being advertised and I fit the brief well and it is exactly the kind of school I would love to lead. I arranged a visit and went today. The Head welcomed me and showed me round but hardly spoke to me at all. She didn't ask me where I worked, she didn't ask me anything at all about myself, she was very factual. She introduced me to her Deputy and another SLT member but not to any other staff. She was distant and a bit off, really. Literally it was like, here is Y1, here is Y2 and here is the playground, etc. At the end she asked me if I had any questions but said that everything I needed to know was on the website. SHe made it clear that she didn't want to talk to me, really. She told me nothing about herself or the school. I was a little surprised because at every other visit for any other job I have gone for, the Head usually talks at length about what they are looking for, what kind of a school it is, what the area is like etc. They chat to you and make you feel welcome. This was not the case. She said that she didnt want to talk to me in any way about the role because she wanted for it to be fair to other candidates, which I thought seemed fair. Do you think this is true? I guess she might be unhappy about leaving and so finds it difficult to show prospective people around. It's made me come away feeling unwelcome and as if she was trying to put me off.
