Webinar: „Headmaster Interview & How to Prepare“ on 15/11/22

For all pupils, admission to an English school involves an interview conducted either by the Headmaster, the Deputy Head or also by another teacher. The aim of the interviews is usually to test the English of the German-speaking candidate. In addition, the school also wants to get to know the personality, character and interests of the young applicant and find out whether he or she is a good fit for the school and, conversely, whether the school is the right one for the student. A good interview in which you can present yourself authentically even in a foreign language is therefore crucial for the selection process. 

In our webinar, we explain what is important in an interview, which questions are often asked and how you can make an interview interesting as an applicant.

Tuesday, 15 November at 7:00pm (approx. 1 hour)

Webinar: „The CAT4 Test & How to Prepare” on 20/10/22

In recent years, many schools have started to test the general cognitive abilities of applicants rather than the subject knowledge of individual school subjects in the written tests. The most commonly used test is the "Cognitive Abilities Test" or CAT4. But what exactly is behind this diagnostic test procedure that is supposed to analyse how individual pupils learn and what their individual academic potential is?

How to prepare for your start at boarding school

The start of term in September is fast approaching and the excitement is mounting! What an adventure: new school, new country, new culture, new language and of course… all those new faces! All our pupils find themselves in exactly the same situation and rest assured, most settle into boarding school-life in Britain within a few days or weeks.  This is in no small part due to the excellent preparation for new starters provided by the schools, supported of course by their families. That includes help with administrative hurdles and packing lists, as well as making sure that children feel emotionally ready to take this big step. 

In our webinar "Packing up and Settling in: How to Prepare for your Start at Boarding School" last year, our guests shared tips that are still relevant.
