Mock Interviews 2018

Our Year 12 students further developed their understanding of the world of work on Thursday 8th February 2018 when our annual Mock Interview programme took place.  There was a flurry of activity as students sat an interview with local employers and engaged in a post interview feedback session.


Success Skills – Young Enterprise.

The Year 12 students benefited from some last minute preparations before their mock interviews when they attended Presentation Skills and Success Skills workshops delivered by Ms. Vivienne Walsh  from Young Enterprise on Monday 5 February 2018.  Our students learnt about how to maximise their chances in an interview situation, from application stage through to the interview itself.  Particular emphasis was placed on how to convey and communicate at interview that you are right for the job.  Our students benefited from additional real life advice from Natalie Graham from Tesco HR Dept.  They additionally faced the sternest of critics…their peers and gave each other feedback on their own presentation skills.  The morning certainly paved the way for our students Mock Interview Day later in the week.


We are extremely proud of our pupils’ efforts and performance and have enjoyed reading and hearing the extremely positive feedback from employers.

A word of thanks is owed to many people:

  • The many organisations that contributed to the days, and gave of their expertise.
  • Our English, LLW and Yr 12 Form Tutors, for preparing the pupils for their interviews.
  • Parents of Year 12 pupils for supporting your children and for presenting them so well!
  • Our canteen staff and classroom assistants who provided refreshments.
