Hello everyone

We are having a parent interview at Arnold House in the fall this year (Sept/Oct) and were wondering if anyone would be willing to let us know what kind of questions we would be asked so that we can be prepared. It is the first choice of school for us as we have a son who needs to be in a smaller more nurturing type of school and we are desperate for any information that anyone would be willing to share re the parent and child assessments there? PLeeeeeease? Thanks so much..

Not sure what you can make of that. Hope it's useful.

Oh, we did not get in. But did get into the more academic Hall.

Hi Arghhelp, sorry just found your post about the parents' interview with the head at AH. I know it might be ancient for you but would you mind sharing a bit of the questions asked since we are going on Wednesday.
Thank you very much for your time.

@chrisiechrisie you can’t prepare for the interview with the Head. He either thinks you are a good fit or you aren’t. The above description was our experience.
