Interview preparation

 

Any interview is a daunting process, particularly for a child, and we will make them confident in a formal setting, help them to understand the importance of etiquette and body language and be comfortable answering often challenging and thought-provoking questions. Different schools have different philosophies and as such our interview classes are one-to-one and designed to meet the needs of your child and the requirements of the schools applied to. This cohesive process will maximize their chances of obtaining entry.

 

Our students have gained places at schools such as:

 
  • Eton

  • Winchester

  • Tonbridge

  • Harrow

  • Sevenoaks

  • Cheltenham Ladies’ College

  • Downe House

  • Rugby

  • Marlborough

Mentorship

 

Students will come across hurdles and cross-roads in their academic career. Our mentorship programme is designed to offer support, guidance and encouragement.

 

Our mentoring programme begins at Year 9, where students can discuss with their mentor aspects such as GCSE and A-level choices as well as receive suggestions with regard to extra-curricular activities, get advice on school and university selection and understand the practicalities of their desired career path. By meeting and learning from established and successful people, they will have access to professional network opportunities that are vital towards their future career growth and development.

 

Later, when they take their first tentative steps into the workplace, we will help them to understand their competition and provide them with insight into industry expectations. This will enable students to broaden their horizons and embrace the challenges they will encounter.

 

We give your child the best possible start to make the best possible choices.
