    Ideally I would like to teach in an independent primary school. I just wondered if there are any private primary teachers on here, or anyone with any general insight, that could let me know what exactly they look for. Are they more likely to pick someone based on their academia or experience, or both? As it stands, I will graduate with a 2.1 in literature from a RG uni... and will then go on to do the PGCE, again at a RG uni

    Thanks

    I did experience at 3 private secondaries. University seemed pretty important and generally the teachers went to better universities (although not always). Experience of course will be important and I imagine it will be significantly more competitive than state sector. I was told it helps if you were educated at a private school.
