Interview Course

Master key skills in short interviews, crucial for UK independent school selection.

Course Introduction

Student interviews are a critical part of the assessment process for all leading UK independent schools. Your child's interview will allow them the opportunity to demonstrate key skills that will not necessarily be shown in a written assessment. For example: critical and creative thinking, motivation, aspirations, independence, compassion, self-awareness and emotional maturity. These are all hugely important factors in a school's decision to select their strongest candidates.  


Many interviews are, however relatively short (often between 15 and 20 minutes) and offer only a limited opportunity for your son or daughter to demonstrate these qualities. Each question is an opportunity for them to shine, but how do they recognise and then use these questions effectively? 


Our Interview preparation Course is designed to offer your son or daughter every possible help in preparing for future interviews by studying these aspects in detail. 

Course Content

This 10-week course covers a range of key aspects that will prepare students well for their future interviews. It will include, (but is not limited by) the following: 

  • Self-Awareness — what/who do they want to portray at interview 

  • Why this school? — Understanding their motivations for applying to a specific school (finding common themes between their character and the school) 

  • What is a question actually asking? — Questions often enquire about more the then question might suggest. Can students see the greater depth and opportunity? 

  • Abstract Questions — How to think about these confidently and creatively. For example 'if anger were a building, which building would it be? This questions invites a critical and creative reflection on the nature of anger. 

  • Independence — What is independence and why is it important? …Take Care with this question! - it is much more than simply 'freedom'. 

  • Critical Thinking — An awareness of current affairs and philosophical thinking. 


  • Students aged between 9 and 17 who are preparing to sit interviews for their chosen schools in the next 12 months.
