Monday, find out ofsted are coming in again.
Tuesday - get observed by ofsted - graded "outstanding". (yes that's an actual grade they use), then find out I have a job interview on Thursday
Wednesday - Ofsted take school out of special measures ending 18 months of shit.
Thursday - Do job interview, get job as head of science at a new academy in centre of town.

20% pay rise, slightly longer hours and shorter holidays (but still loads by normal standards)

And - its a 100% selective by audition performing and creative arts academy. They have fully equipped recording studios, broadcast quality TV & radio studios, Theatres etc. Students are actually likely to really get careers in showbiz - not just think they are going to like in most schools.

While I was there a group in the canteen actually spontaneously burst into song and some others started dancing...

I am head of science in a high school musical....

Congratulations but the school sounds terrible! Auditions to get in? Is Simon Cowell or some other gobshite going to judge? No wonder our country is going to the dogs.
