    The sparkly organisation are often seen as a 2nd choice to work for as they are profit making schools.
    The boot schools (there are 2 of them) are OK but not the best by any means. All of their PE dept left last year as they weren't happy.
     
  3. Thanks for the info. They are advertising a lot of jobs including head positions etc. How does it impact on teachers when a school is a for-profit organisation? Does it mean longer hours, less holiday? I guess it's difficult to generalise.

    It means that a proportion of the pupil income goes to the owner ie less goes to the school.
    This generally results in lower salaries, cheaper accomodation, lower health packages, fewer school resources.
    The driver in these schools is profit before education. This can also affect school philosophy in some cases.
