What would you look for?

Some of you are aware that our principal has resigned. I've never been in this situation before - working at a school during the changeover of principals take place. I think we're in a rather unique situation though because our governing body wants input from all parties - staff, pupils and parents.

I'm still not sure I have my list finalised. The problem with my list is that the person I want will need to be perfect. Since such a person doesn't exist, that leaves me with a bit of a problem.

If you were responsible for appointing a new principal or headmaster/ -mistress, what would you look for? What would be your top qualities or skill competencies? What would be your non-negotiables?
