I've always worked in the state sector but I've got an interview next week for a Head of Department at a boarding school. Is there anything I should specifically ask or be aware of.

Do you have lessons on Saturday mornings?
Is accommodation provided?
What evening and weekend duties will I be expected to do?

I think I would be mostly trying to gauge the atmosphere as presumably you will be with these people pretty much 24/7. Do they seem happy, friendly, as if they are enjoying being there and I apply that to both staff and students. I am also always interested as to how many internal candidates there are. Best of Luck.

Don't ask any question that is easily answered by reading their website, eg Saturday classes.
