Thank you for your kind interest,
Quite more relaxed than I expected !! Parents were seeing either the Head or Deputy Head. We had a nice chat with the second and I asked him a few questions concerning the most recent inspection report on habs. He did not ask us any questions apart form whether our son likes the school and what are his favourite subjects.
My son was taken away for an interview, first with 2 other boys by the head of the junior school and then one to one with someone else. She just asked him to read a piece from a book and then asked some really easy questions on it; then discussed with my son a book he had brought with him plus a piece of work he had done recently. No VRs or NVRs questions, no mental maths or anything else of the sort. My son was very relaxed and so were all the staff.
The whole thing did not really take more that 45 minutes. Things do change after all.
All the best,
Good Luck to your son for todays interview. Perhaps you would tell us how he did.
