Success in top school interviews: – Tips for all kinds of interviews – Insight – Planning Tools All proceeds to Helping Hand

About this Event
Dr Jessica has been preparing Hong Kong students for entry to top British schools for over twenty years. In this workshop, you will learn how to identify your child’s strengths by using our planning tools.

We will discuss preparation for group, individual, academic and online interviews and share insight into the different styles you might encounter.

The proceeds of this seminar will be going to Helping Hand to aid Hong Kong’s needy elderly.

This year, only one Hong Kong-based boy was chosen to join College, the prestigious scholars’ house at Winchester College. He is Brandon student, Zachary.

Only one Hong Kong-based boy was awarded an Exhibition, recognising academic excellence. He is a Brandon student,Victor.

Both boys are part of our selective Elite Scholars programme which trains our students to excel through lessons in critical thinking, writing, English, science, humanities, maths and even Latin. Our results speak for themselves.

We have an incredible seven boys joining Winchester College Commoner houses in September.

Congratulations to all our new Wykhamists!

One of the most beautiful gifts in the world is the gift of encouragement. When someone encourages you, that person helps you over a threshold you might otherwise never have crossed on your own. – John O’Donohue
