Hi all, Hoping to get some help with a dilemma I’m facing. I’ve been teaching at my current school for three years now and am seriously considering leaving. It’s a nice school with lots of experienced staff and and teachers are generally treated very well and students are mostly polite, well behaved and high achieving. I’m considering leaving for a few different reasons 1. I’m thinking about moving to London (I’m currently only a short distance away) as I would like a higher salary so I can save up more to buy my own place. Schools are seriously underfunded at the moment and I know my current school won’t be able to match the London payscales. 2. I’m in no rush to progress up the ladder but it is something that I want in the future and as this school and my department are so well established (I’m the least experienced teacher) I know that I’m not in mind for any future promotions. I really enjoy learning from all my experienced colleagues but I am wary that those in charge still see me as the NQT I started as and changing schools would be a fresh start. 3. Diversity. I realise this may sound silly to some but I grew up in a very multi-cultural community and my current school is very different to this and in some ways it makes connections with students feel slightly harder. I suppose my question is: does the above sound like reasonable ideas for changing schools or, considering the current teaching climate, am I silly to leave the great school I’m currently at. Thanks in advance for any help.
