What do you say at interview when ...

...you're leaving because behaviour at your current school is SO bad?
This is a non-teaching role, but I'm still up against the rudeness/disrespect/hooligan behaviour of students I work with or who pass through the area where I'm based.
I've been there seven years, so I guess I'm looking for new surroundings anyway, but the new job wouldn't hold any particular new challenges so I don't think I can say that's the reason.

The culture of the school is moving in a direction that doesn’t chime with your own personal values so you’re looking for a better fit?

Even better you are looking to move to a school with a culture like the one you are applying to ‘cite examples of things you like’

Oh, I like that ... thank you!

You lie: I'm very happy in my current job but yourschool was an opportunity I couldn't pass up.

You don't mention it. Always focus on why you DO want to move to the new school rather than why you DON'T want to work at the old school.

Definitely don’t criticise your old school. Only positive reasons for moving to the new school.
