Tough, two interviews over 3 days, but worth it!

I wore smart casual, they weren’t very helpful when telling you what to wear, saying whatever you felt comfortable in. Most of the private school lot wore suits or uniforms. A shirt and smart chinos were fine though.

Impressions

Friendly.

Final stage

So so so nervous, worst 2 weeks of my life, was only 2 weeks though and I received a response before Christmas, despite the snow!

Mild panic, running round, almost ripped the letter in half as I opened the envelope.

Looking back

Definitely.

It’s worth a shot! You can still apply to 4 others!
