PREP TO SENIOR SCHOOL CHOICES AND INTERVIEW PREPARATION FOR 13+ for UK PARENT
With a son attending a day prep school in the Home Counties, this British family needed guidance on possible senior school choices for their son at 13+. Being first-time buyers, they were not familiar with the independent school system, so needed advice and support with the selection, planning, timing, application and preparation process.
Building on the advice they were given by their Prep School Head, our consultant helped the family to review the whole range of senior school options in their search area, as well as explain the application and entry process and help to prepare their son for entry tests and interviews. The boy required learning support for dyslexia, so we assisted the family in finding him a tutor, to help him with exam skills and techniques in preparation for the entry tests.
Parents were successful in securing a place at their first-choice senior school and their son is currently studying towards his GCSE’s. He is happy at school, both socially and academically and meeting his academic potential. His parents feel his needs are met and his talents are nurtured. He also plays for the school’s first football team.
