Hi, I'm hoping for some advice! After 5 years teaching in a state school I have just gotten a job in a private school starting in September. Does anyone have any tips, advice, stories etc that will help with my transition into the private sector? I'm so excited and it's a gorgeous school but i'm not quite sure what to expect! It would be great to hear from anyone working in the private sector, especially if they have experience in state schools and can compare them! Are the parents different, are expectations for staff and students different? What are staff relationships with pupils generally like? Do you have to dress differently for work? What is it like working Saturday mornings and what impact has it had on your family life? So many questions! Thanks in advance!
