Q: Can I ask to visit the school before the interview?

A: Much probably depends on how many applications a school is expecting to receive. For main- grade posts, in areas where many applications may be received, it might just not be practicable. There is a lot you can find out about a school online these days. Maybe someone on The TES website (www. ) could offer an opinion about the school.
