Year 9 (13+) Group Interviews

During our Prospective Pupils’ Day in October Year 9 candidates will be placed in groups of 4 or 5 girls or boys. Two members of staff will direct the groups’ activities and observe the candidates’ interaction. The activities will be typical classroom activities for which no preparation is required.

After the interview, candidates will be asked to list their co-curricular interests and achievements. This is to ensure that we have a complete record for each candidate and, again, no preparation is required.
