Trust students have mock interview with BWT Director
Brooke Weston Trust Director Mr Heneage Stevenson met Sixth Formers from Trust schools and gave them mock interviews in order to prepare them for their applications to Oxbridge.
The Year 13 students travelled to Mr Stevenson’s office in Westminster for their individual mock interviews. Some were given problem solving tasks and all were quizzed about their personal statement and their motivation to do their chosen courses. Once the process was complete, Mr Stevenson, an Oxford graduate himself, gave detailed and constructive feedback to each and every one.
Mr Dave Clarke, Deputy Director of Sixth Form at Brooke Weston Academy accompanied the nine students from Brooke Weston Academy and one from Corby Technical School. He said: ‘They felt a mixture of apprehension and excitement before their interviews and the atmosphere was great. All were extremely grateful for the experience and the time Heneage gave for them to experience what the real interview may be like.
‘He gave constructive feedback to all students and wished them well in their future endeavours whether successful or not in reaching an Oxbridge University. All came away buzzing for the next step in their higher education journey, more prepared for what that may hold.’
The Brooke Weston students were Levia Yee, Parasdeep Bains, Joel Wallis, Luca Milford, Tapuwa Chitiga, George Tysoe, Winston Ho, Georgia Lorentzen and Sean Tanangonan. Dmitrijs Gnennijs is from Corby Technical School.
