Preparation for Life after LWC is important to us and we were very fortunate to have 17 current parents and 16 Sternians to act as interviewers for the 5th Form Mock Interview morning on Saturday, 8th February. The pupils had been guided on drawing up their CVs and were each allocated to an interviewer for an interview session and evaluation. The pupils found the exercise really valuable and the feedback from both them and the interviewers was extremely positive. Our thanks to all those who took part.
