【頭條日報】 《Oh!爸媽》留英升學展

英國寄宿學校排名榜多元化,有傳統媒體,也有網媒,歸根究柢,排名優次,源於優良成績百分率,譬如GCEA-Level成績用A*至A或A*至B,甚至是A*至C的百分率來排名,綜觀多年的公開試成績,以A*至A的百分率最為可靠,緣為A*百分率全英平均只為百分之八,譬如生物科在二○一七年為百分之七點九,化學為百分之八點六,經濟為百分之七點二,A*平均的百分率基數太低,未必能反映個別學校在公開試的整體強弱,有可能出現大差距,加入A*至A的合計百分率後,差距較為相近,譬如生物科的全英百分率為二成六,化學為三成一,假如有學校只讓學生考上述三科,考得A*至A的平均為五成,比全國平均高兩成,已經是所公開試優異的學校了。

        

查察英國學校公開試排名榜作為選校比較之時,理應仔細查察心儀學科的成績優次,因為某些學科的A*至A全國平均可能低兩成,甚至僅達一成,假如多數學生皆考全英A*至A平百分率較低的學科,則該校的A*至A百分率可能較低,但不代表其公開試成績較差,只是受到某些學科難取得A*至A成績,百分率被拖低。最明顯的學科為傳意學(CommunicationStudies),二○一七年的全英A-LevelA*至A成績平均為百分之十三點九,商學(BusinessStudies)為百分之十五點二,比起生物,化學等等能考A*至A的難度大得多,在眾多學科中,最難取得A*成績是資訊及傳意科技(ICT)為百分之一點一,A*至A則只有百分之十,要拿A*,百中只有一,跟生物、化學,百中有七至八差得遠。數學拿取A*至A最易,全英平均為百分之四十一點八,伸廷數學更高為百分之五十八點二,換句話說,當某校大部份學生考A-Level皆考兩科數,和生物、化學,能取得A*至A有百分之五十,絕不稀奇,這幾科只比全英平均高百分之十上下,卻已經可以排名全英百大,所以要觀察公開試成績排名榜來選擇學校,不能只看表面。

        

一般而言,數理強的學校排名較高是理所當然,至於提供商學、心理、設計與科技、電腦、資訊科技學學科為核心的學校排名較低也是必然,因為能取得A*至A只有百分之十五以下,理論上排名先後達七、八十位乃正常不過,分別不大。

        

新歲之後,《頭條日報》同系《Oh!爸媽》在二月二十四日舉辦留英升學展,筆者約在中午之後出席並主持講座,詳情見《Oh!爸媽》網頁以及筆者FB專頁,同場有全英排名前列的寄宿學校展覽,不要錯過。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
