These seminars will run once a month. Selected experts in the international school application process will give key advice to parents on how to prepare their children and how best to navigate the stressful process of school interviews. Parents will then be allowed to ask questions and discuss with the experts.

“In my time conducting interviews at kindergarten level, it was always easy to see when child had been coached by the parents. The child was often too focused on following learnt instructions, this didn’t allow the true personality of the child to shine through. The parent’s coaching actually had a detrimental effect on performance” - Charles Beddow
