We work with lots of parents who are nervous about upcoming school interviews.    We believe a little practice goes a long way in helping children prepare for senior school interviews at all stages.

It helps to go over some school interview questions with your child before the big day. Ensure that they have thought about their achievements both in and out of the classroom (have they won any sports/dance/music trophies or similar). Do they like debating? Do they enjoy cooking? Do they have an interest in a particular artist?   Spend some time ensuring they know what makes them tick, so they are ready to talk about it on the big day.

Encourage them to think closely about their favourite (and least favourite subject) what is it they enjoy about it – what’s their favourite topic and why is this topic important?

For more school interview questions and tips on how to answer have a look at our school interview and entry exam guide. This is designed especially for parents to help them prepare for a school interview.
