Passing the entrance exams is the first step. Your child will also be interviewed by their prospective schools. We provide independent advice and practice to cope with these interviews.
Interview Skills is not about telling your child exactly what to say. This defeats the purpose of an interview. Our sessions will help your child to act naturally and feel comfortable in an interview situation. This increases confidence and promotes good presentational skills when meeting new people in unfamiliar situations.
Your child will be interviewed by a specialist and will be expected to answer questions on a range of subjects based on current school interview methods. Your child will develop strategies to cope with and answer surprise questions, maximising his or her chances of being selected by your school(s) of choice.
We offer tips for improvement and provide you with feedback and suggestions on how to practise your interview technique at home.

"Interview Practice with Janie was both professional and enlightening! We had no idea what to expect of the interviews. Both my daughter and myself felt more prepared to face the interviews with confidence. Many of the questions that we talked through came up and my daughter was able to answer questions with ease. She gained places at all her schools including St Pauls girls, Godolphin and Latymer Upper. "
