Description

In this programme two new heads of department work through their first crucial summer term, and their colleagues reveal what they really think of them.

Andy Barnard is head of geography at St Peter's School in Gloucester. At 25 he is an excellent classroom teacher but can he learn to manage a department of experienced staff, most of whom hold senior positions in the school?

Jo Polle leads a staff of nearly 40 as head of learning development at Waingel's College in Reading. She is an experienced manager from further education but her challenge is learning to cope in a school.

With meetings before and after school, and mounds of paper work, how are they coping with all the stress of the extra work?
