    Anyone go to Woodhouse or St Michaels?
    Recently had my interviews for both of them . St Michaels was okay...I guess(tbh the woman seems very bored and bland)
    Woodhouse, on the other hand, was amazing. The teacher was very nice and made it more like a conversation than an interview
    I'm conflicted. Initially, St Michaels,being very high in the league table was a no brainier,but I'm rethinking
    Pls help

    This is St Michael's Catholic Grammar School in Finchley you're talking about, yes?

    I did my A levels there and it's a very good school. I know quite a few people who went to Woodhouse and a lot of them did quite badly because the teachers aren't that fussed, they take more of a "do it yourself" approach. This may sound great initially but may not be the best option if you know you'd fall back and become lazy without teachers beings on top of you and your work all the time. And as you say, St Michael's is very high in the tables and is generally an excellent school, I have no regrets about doing A levels there.

    Yeah...that one
    I guess the interviewer was just doing her job...cause one of my friends said the same thing. I'm trying not to think about it too much

    They just ask you about the bullet points in your personal statement. Then they ask about how you feel about their policies(uniform,not leaving school etc). At the end the interviewer will ask
    ' if someone broke the glass in the common room and the teacher walked in and they wouldn't admit it,what would you do?'

    Wow, they still ask that broken glass question, I would have thought they'd changed that by now :lol:
