Why is there such a high number of teachers leaving the profession in their 30’s?

It is far more rare these days to find a classroom teacher with grey hair, and it is not because people have stopped ageing or are under less pressure in the job. Could it be because the UK education system is such that when teachers reach their 30’s they are no longer incentivised to stay in the classroom?
