Yeah, and I could have been a great ballerina, if only I'd been prepared to lose a few pounds and go through the sex-change.
Stop bloody whinging. Dealing with Ofsted inspections is part of the job of being a head teacher. You can't pick and choose which aspects of the role you want to fulfil. Managing a school requires an entirely different set of skills to overseeing a class of kids. If you don't think you've got what it takes, don't apply for the bloody job.
Simple as that.
