Interview Preparation

Work with the best to prepare for interviews

Interviews can be daunting and confusing for children and young adults. Many schools require interviews as part of their school entrance process, alongside exams.

Our consultants work to give specific, practical and constructive feedback, so that students can understand what is required of them and feel confident going into interviews.
