  School seeks choccie-loving tutor
Updated 10 December 2003, 10.14
Choccie
A school which advertised for a teacher who "must love chocolate" has been swamped by people applying for the job.

Marshalls Park Comprehensive School in Essex wanted to find a new head of English, but knew that it would be competing against many other schools.

To make its ad stand out, it decided to put in a line about choccie. The school got 80% more applications than usual.

Headteacher Cedric Hendricks said he hoped the ad would attract someone with "a sense of humour".

"Academic qualifications are one thing, but we are also looking for people who will make a difference in the classroom."
