11+ Interview Workshop

Our online 1.5 hour workshop is for any child wishing to prepare for an 11+ interview as part of a school entrance examination. 

The workshop uses our 11+ Interview Practice Skills Book throughout. This must be purchased by the client before the workshop.

The workshop starts with some confidence boosting activities, aimed at encouraging children to think about their own qualities and what makes them special. We will try to nurture a growth mindset amongst the children so that they feel enthusiastic about participating in an interview and excited to share their knowledge, experiences and ideas with their interviewer.

Next, we will focus on reading and responding to a range of interview questions. Topics include:
– You and your family (including personal achievements); 
– You and your school (including school based activities and achievements);
– The school to which you are applying;
– Responding to unusual questions on the spot;
– Responding to moral, ethical and dilemma based questions;
– Science and maths based questions;
– Describing an image;
– Reading a poem/passage;
– Current affairs

Mock Interview:

Once you have completed the Interview Workshop, you might be interested in booking a Mock Interview. We offer a twenty minute 1:1 mock interview, held online. Only your child and the tutor will be present during this mock interview. It is recommended to take this after the Interview Practice Workshop. After the interview, written feedback will be sent via email. 

Thank you so much for the great interview sessions yesterday and today. These were so inspirational and such realistic mock interviews and we now know how to prepare the answers to these as well as think about the attitude & mindset. We practiced and revised this evening based on your feedback which is really specific, helpful and full of kind words.
