Selection is based largely upon the impressions formed during the interview and on the reference provided by your school. In general, we want to be sure that you have a clear idea of what you want to achieve, that you are hard-working, mature, and ready to take full advantage of all the opportunities that Hurtwood House provides.
Obviously, your academic record is important and we have high academic standards to maintain, but this is certainly not the only criterion for selection. Above all, we need to feel that you are going to make a positive contribution to our community. Character, willingness, cheerfulness, creativity and enthusiasm are all qualities that we look for.
The interview is an informal affair and is a chance for students, and parents, to get to know Hurtwood as much as it is for us to get to know you.
