Preparation for school entrance interviews
This preparation gives our students the confidence and skills they need to create a good impression. We explain the interview process, give examples of the questions that are asked and help the child consider how they would answer in ‘live’ conditions.
Depending on the school, the process can vary, but we provide top interview tips, helping the child understand that no answer is wrong, as long as it can be explained and is delivered with confidence. We look at the importance of voice projection and the dynamics of interacting with others in group interview situations. Our interview preparation also includes a mock English oral comprehension and questions based on a piece of art.
Interview preparation sessions last for an hour and parents are encouraged to attend too so they can practise some of the skills with their child after the session.
NEW! 11+ MOCK GROUP INTERVIEW
New for this year’s cohort, we are offering 11+ mock group interview sessions, on Sunday, 11th November 2018. Children are often interviewed or observed interacting in small groups, so there is a real benefit in preparing them in this way.
Our morning session will start promptly at 9am and the finish time will be 12. Our afternoon session will start at 2pm and finish at 5pm.
Our mock group interview consists of a three-hour session with a maximum of 6 children in a group. The group interview tasks will be delivered by a qualified, experienced senior teacher. An experienced member of the JK team will watch the children’s responses and they will then write up their observations and recommendations for each child. Each session will be interactive and very similar to the type of activities and tasks that are given to children in group interview situations.
The skills we will test during these mock interviews will be: listening skills, collaboration, leadership skills, team work, general knowledge and the child’s behaviour. We want this to be a very positive and helpful experience, so that in the real interviews they will be able to show their very best!
We will follow up this day with a brief report on each child’s performance in the mock group interview. This report will be sent to parents along with some general information and tips to help you be involved in your child’s preparations for the real interviews, using this valuable feedback.
7+ MOCK GROUP INTERVIEW
The JK 7+ mock group interview will offer useful preparation for real 7+ interviews.
Our mock group interview consists of three sessions with a maximum of 6 children in a group. The group interview tasks will be delivered by a qualified, experienced senior teacher. An experienced member of the JK team will watch the children’s responses and they will then write up their observations and recommendations for each child. Each session will be interactive and very similar to the type of activities and tasks that are given to children in the real 7+ group interview situations.
