Visiting another school

    This is a strange thing that I have heard of a lot in primary education (where I understand a bad or failure to visit can condemn you without interview), but never come across in secondary

    I don't believe 'not visiting' can condemn anyone prior to interview. It is a practice that hails back to the days when schools desperately wanted to attract applicants, and when perhaps teachers could pick or chose the 'type' of school they might want to work at. In this climate however it would be naive to believe that that is still the case, and in practice having 'potential' applicants pop in for a visit takes up time and is a complete ball ache.
