There are a few favoured styles for group interviews:
- the debate or discussion - a teacher uses an article or a few ideas in order to prompt a discussion. This is a feature of the Wycombe Abbey interview
- a sports activity - students are expected to follow instructions. Downe House sees how the girls work as a team by using sport.
- a science lesson - Tonbridge see how boys follow guidance, work as a team and use their intellect to engage with experiments
- a treasure hunt - great fun at Benenden.
and my personal favourite...
baking at Downe House! As we all know from Gordon Ramsey- a team which works together in the kitchen is always a winner!
