11 + Interview Skills


You never get a second chance to make a first impression!

We know the value that private schools place on their interview selection process. They want to get a close look at whether a candidate would be suitable for their school, complement the other children and be happy.

At JK Educate we believe that it is vitally important for
each child to approach their school interviews with confidence.
That is why we offer a bespoke interview preparation session
with all of our Year 6 students sitting the independent school
exams. Feedback from previous years has shown us that it is
incredibly helpful and reassuring for our students.

All schools interview differently.  Some have individual interviews, some paired and some in groups.  Katie runs through how the interview process works, what types of questions might be asked and how the children might like to consider their answers to these questions. It is really important that the answers come from the children, not from Katie, or the parent, but this preparatory session gives children the time to think in advance about their answers so they will be more confident on the day.  Katie also runs through other top tips for the interview day for students AND parents and also carries out a mock English oral test with the children.

Interview preparation sessions take place in Hampstead Garden Suburb office and cost £200 for the hour. One parent is requested to stay with their child during this hour, so that tips and suggestions can be practised at home before the big day!

If you would like any further information or would like to book a session please call Katie Krais on: 020 3488 0754.
