  • Practice interviews help students prepare for future success

    This week, we have welcomed a wide range of employers into the school, to hold practice interviews for our Year 11 students. Practice interviews are a fantastic chance for students to experience what a real interview would be like, in terms of format and questions. These interviews help our students to learn how to answer difficult questions, develop interview strategies, improve their communication skills, and to build professional relationships and confidence. Thank you to all of the business leaders involved.
