The Pre-Test: Moving on Workshop 10+ In this lively two hour session we teach younger pupils professional techniques used by actors and television presenters to improve performance at interview. We encourage candidates to think about what makes them “unique” and we discuss how to handle the different types of questions which crop up at pre-test. All candidates are given a mock interview with constructive feedback.

The Entry Programme: Moving On Workshop 11-13+ The course is designed to encourage and challenge Common Entrance and scholarship candidates applying to competitive schools. We teach applicants how to present themselves at interview and we look in depth at the kinds of topics which they should be prepared to explore. Students are given a mock interview (with a rigorous academic component if required) and receive written and verbal feedback.
