Interview & Assessment

Once we receive your completed application, a member of the Admission team will contact you to arrange an interview. Interviews begin on October 12, 2022 and will run until February 4, 2023. The interview is designed to allow us to get to know you and your child as well as provide an opportunity for you to ask questions about the Havergal difference. For the health and safety of our applicants, students and faculty, for the time being interviews will be conducted over Zoom. We highly recommend downloading the Zoom app in advance of your interview.

The interview will be approximately 60 minutes and include time with you (parents) together with your child as well as time with your daughter on her own.  During the interview, through guided conversation, we will work through a series of tasks which are designed to provide the College with an understanding of each applicant’s skills which have been developed in literacy and numeracy as well as in the areas of:

  • Critical thinking skills
  • Problem solving/reasoning skills
  • Self awareness & self management

Please note: If English is not the applicant’s first language, they may be asked to write the IELTS assessment to determine their English proficiency.
