Wanted: GSOH;Diary

23rd April 1999 at 01:00
A CHALLENGING job arises in north London. Brookfield primary wants a second deputy head, but warns that the usual dynamic, confident, outgoing individual will not be enough. It wants someone who will also be "millennium compliant".

So you want someone who won't crash out at midnight on December 31? we ask head Maggie Pyne.

"No, it means being informed and aware of current issues, so you'll sail into the next millennium without any difficulties," Maggie tells us before confessing: "We're looking for someone with a sense of humour.

"The TES is full of adverts for deputy heads. We want to make people stop and read ours."

It worked - 17 people rang in the first three days. "Some people ask in a very worried voice what it means. You can tell they'll be no good."
