Oppidan Prepping Our 5th Formers For Senior School Transition

01 October 2021


This week we welcomed back Oppidan Education to Caldicott, who we have worked with a number of times. They help young people take ownership of their learning and come to school to delivery mentoring programmes that engage children in creative but practical ways. Our 5th Formers this week had trial interviews with the Oppidan staff; they were asked all about themselves and given feedback on what they did well, what they could do better, and general good interviewing practice.

We do all we can to ensure boys are thoroughly prepared for the entry process to senior schools, and a big part of that is making sure they present themselves well in interviews. This experience has been invaluable, and the boys are now no doubt better off ahead of their senior school and future interviews.
