What is the interview course?

Our interview course is designed to guide children preparing for the 9+,  10+, 11+ and 13+ by familiarising them with the interview process and giving them all the necessary tips to excel in any school interview. Covid-19 has not just caused disruption in our daily lives, but has also changed the weighting of interview for some school applications, resulting in equal weighting for interviews and academic tests. This means that now, more so than ever, the interview process is a crucial part of any independent school application.

Delivered to children over 2 days in 5 hours, children will learn how best to let their personality shine through in a school interview. The course consists of a number of sessions with different activities and tasks.

You will receive:

  • two individual interviews with an experienced tutor
  • participation in a group interview
  • a forum to learn and discuss appropriate answers, etiquette and technique for interview
  • homework tasks to reflect on progress and help improve confidence when facing questioning
  • full feedback at the end of the course with scores and details for improvement
  • ‘parent interviews’ – as many schools have now extended interviews to parents too, parents will be given the opportunity to engage with our experts to make sure their own interactions meet the standards. Parents will also be given added hints and tips during this session.

When and where?

Where are our classes held?

Our interview course is held online and is delivered live by highly experienced tutors with a wealth of experience in exam preparation. Group sizes will be no more than 6 students (group sessions only) ensuring a dynamic environment for children to learn – and also allowing for each child to receive enough attention.

We make use of an online interactive whiteboard alongside online video calling via Google Meet or Zoom. This tried and tested method is very easy to use – thanks to our years of experience working with students internationally, we now have a track record of effective online tuition with children from ages 8 to 18 in many subjects.

Advances in digital technology have been empowering for the educational sphere and children are usually more engaged and get more attention from our online classes than they would anywhere else (including school!)
