Preparing your child for private school interviews is a must. Preparing the right questions can make all of what’s ahead seem less daunting and scary, which will help ensure success!
Private (independent) schools are looking for children who will fit in well with their student population. To help prepare your child for the inevitable independent school interview, there are a few things you can do before the interview so that your child can enjoy the process and come out successfully!
The school interview is a crucial part of the private school admissions process. All potential students at state-run schools are not allowed to be interviewed, but it’s an integral part of the process for those interested in attending an independent or boarding programme – and they can even affect your child’s chances of getting accepted!
Many parents get nervous about these private school interviews (understandably) because there’s no telling what your child might say or do during the interview – after all we’re only human.
If your child is (understandably) nervous about being asked questions by an admissions officer or teacher at any point during the independent school interviews then try some deep breathing exercises and relaxation techniques before the big day.
