Tips for College Interviews
Tips to make your interview a success are:
- Have a conversation. The most successful applicants are those who are themselves
- Ask questions. Do express your interest in why you want to study the subject(s) you have applied for and the College
- Be yourself. Don’t try to answer questions based on what you think your interviewer wants to hear
- Prepare. Find out about the course(s) you’ve applied for. Find out about the career paths or further study options. Find out about the College. Have a look through the website.
- Be ready. Always arrive at least 15 minutes early.

Lunch Money Loans
It has become apparent that the number of students borrowing money for lunch has increased dramatically this school year. Lunch money loans should be for emergency purposes only.
Walthamstow School for Girls offers a Top-Up facility via sQuid enabling both students and parents to check balances, top-up lunch money, pay for trips and other sundry items at their own convenience.
An automatic Top-Up can also be activated ensuring your daughter never runs out of money.
A reminder to parents/carers that if you wish to pay for your daughter’s school meals by cheque, please make the cheque payable to ‘Olive Dining Ltd’.
All students have also been given usernames and passwords to enable payments to be made online via our sQuid system (see the school website for details). If you would like a reminder of your daughter’s username and password please contact Student Services.
If you require a college reference you need to hand in your completed application form to Student Services in the morning, before registration. You will then be able to collect it after school that day.
Any applications/requests received after break may not be completed until the following day.
We have to adopt this procedure as hundreds of requests come in each year and they all need to be logged and completed.
If you need your reference before the Christmas holidays it will contain your Forecast Grade from your end of Year 10 exam results. After Christmas this will be updated and your college reference will have a Forecast Grade based on your Year 11 Mock Examination.
For on-line applications, where a contact e-mail address is requested, you should use the following address:
If you have any questions please see Ms Warren or Ms Jolliffe.
