As far as I'm concerned they cant get paid enough, dealing with the little sh!ts that are around nowadays!

Those are the figures from the government website (with links). I didn't say (and neither did they) as to how many were earning those figures and he can find out for himself the lower salaries too through the links.

I'm not trying to get anyone's hopes up - just the opposite! I found some real figures (according to the government) because of the 60,000 GBP figure that was on this thread.

PS. I didn't get the cane since I was a girl and still am by the way

Default Thanks

Thanks Everyone. I appreciate the website and the advice. For the last 8 years I have been a high school principal of a school with 2000 plus students. So I am trying to see how I can work my way through the system.

I have nothing intellectual to contribute here, but I just want to say to Mr. Big Pete that I like your spirit! When I become principal (headmaster, here?) I'd like you in MY school! Just a question:I'll be teaching in Surrey County, near Cobham. Does anyone know anything about affordable, "safe" housing there? I wouldn't mind living farther out, as long as it is near public transportation. I'd travel up to 30 minutes on the train. Thanks...

Others have commented about the money, I will just add that the teaching profession is not the best paid (compared to lets say Germany)...

The South East normally includes London, Surrey, Kent, West & East Sussex, Berkshire and perhaps Hampshire.

The differences in housing prices are quite big, and this should help inform your decision. London in general is more expensive (North West, West and Central London the worst, East and South London more affordable in general) , in Surrey the corridor along the train line from London Waterloo to Portsmouth Harbour is also more expensive (towns like Weybridge, Walton on Thames, Woking, Guildford and so on).

Some other people have pointed out websites were you can check this, once you have an idea of the place where you would work and live, people here could comment about the suitability of the area. Keep in mind that most towns will have housing suitable for different incomes. In Woking there are houses for the super rich or for young professionals and also social housing, so most likely you wioll always find housing you can afford close to your place of work.
