Any news on why Roy left this position?
It's absolutely nothing to do with the school, I've been at the school for a good number of years and enjoy working here. I have a new position elsewhere that I am moving to and therefore had to tender my resignation.
Ah gotcha Could you give a little background on the position from your unique point of view? May be very useful for prospective applicants! (myself included)
has the salary already been subject to pay and benefits review?
There are approximately 500 workstations in total spread across 4 buildings.
There are 8 dedicated PC based IT Suites and 1 Apple Mac suite, with other smaller banks of PC’s in certain classrooms. The PC’s are all Dell and run Windows XP with a view to moving to Windows 7 in the near future. The Mac Suite currently runs OS X 10.5 but the school is licensed for 10.6.
Active Directory based authentication with one of the DC’s being Svr2K8, the others 2k3. The Apple Macs also authenticate with AD using Apples magic triangle Open Directory combination.
The school is a newly built PFI school; the cabling infrastructure is all Cat 5e with 8 core fibre between the switch cabs. The switching is 3Com POE 5500 Enterprise Series and a 3Com telephone system.
Every member of teaching staff has their own laptop issued to them and almost all the teaching rooms are equipped with Smartboards. SIMS.net is the management system, lesson monitor for registers etc.
The school is currently implementing the RM Kaliedos VLE.
We use an AD integrated Smoothwall box for web filtering and Exchange 2007 for email.
Is that the kind of info you were after?

Given the massive changes most IT school people had had to their saleries pending the review I would say the salery offered here means nothing unless they can confirm it has been subject to good old P & B!
Many thanks Roy, much appreciated
A quick *bump* on this ... closing date is soon.
The information I get from SLT is that this post has already gone through the review procedure and therefore will not be subject to it but if you want clarification, your best bet is to contact the school directly as GrumbleDook says.
