【Oh!爸媽】英國私校界神奇女俠:Yasmin Sarwar

上次講過英國私校界的特朗普,今次再講另一位傳奇人物,就是一手打造英國神奇四校之一Cardiff Sixth Form College (CSFC) 的神奇女俠Yasmin Sarwar。

Yasmin Sarwar 這女士的才幹非比尋常,她當日與丈夫以Mr. &Mrs. Sarwar夫妻檔創辦CSFC時,所謂的學校其實只是一間私人的補習社。然而兩夫妻努力打出了頭頂的一片天,在他倆的領導之下,CSFC的成績在全英高中排名第一,學校的名字成為信心保證的金漆招牌。他們的成功故事令人津津樂道,香港人很容易聯想到我們本土的June Leung建立遵理補習王國。Yasmin Sarwar用了短短十年,小小補習社搖身一變成為全英獨佔鰲頭的高中,每日郵電報對之讚口不絕,BBC將它稱為全英最有腦的學校,非同凡響的斐然成就,在英國全國以致國際間都受到稱頌推祟。

 


Cardiff Sixth Form College (CSFC)

 

Yasmin自稱是一位虎媽,她謙指自己純粹用做媽媽的心去栽培學生,但明眼人一眼便看得出她是個教育奇才。然而就跟不少教育界奇才一樣,教育可能很拿手,但弱點卻是做生意不叻。Yasmin和丈夫當年因為種種原因,最後要跟CSFC校方對簿公堂打官司。作為旁觀者,姑勿論箇中來龍去脈,誰是誰非,可以肯定的是二人在商業角度上必定是行錯了某幾步棋,才會落得如此下場。可是,有才華的人是困也困不住的,神奇女俠自然也不會因為一些挫折而一蹶不起的。Yasmin Sarwar去年便一個鯉魚翻身,年中轉了會,投身Oxford International College,在這一間CSFC以往的姊妹學校內大展拳腳,她今日就是該校堂堂的CEO Chief Education Officer。


^Yasmin Sarwar 曾多次榮獲教學獎,肯定其教育成就。

 

成功人士的共通點是非凡的魄力,走馬上任的Yasmin在短短九個月時間,馬不停蹄前往中國內地、香港、馬來西亞、泰國、中東地區等各地招生,不停手批出可觀的獎學金,務求為學校招攬最優秀的學生。在馬來西亞長大的她又用以往一貫的中西合璧東西交融手段,將文化精髓融合。不少人說,管理學校有如帶領球隊,在這位新教頭統領下OIC會不會被啓發出潛能,帶出卓越的表現,一如當日CSFC在她手下所向披靡旗開得勝,也變成英國的班霸位置?大家都拭目以待。


Oxford International College (OIC)

 

當然,未來一切都是未知之數,但我們目前有眼可見的表現,確實是令人充滿期待的,Yasmin短短幾個月為OIC奠下很多重要的基石,亦竪起了不少里程碑。在她調教下,OIC的影踪開始出現在各排行榜上,近日一個排名榜中它甚至已經躋身頭五位,七成多學生在公開試有A*-A成績。我手頭上收到的最新消息,今年OIC的所有學生都能考入他們的第一志願大學,當中確實入劍橋的,已至少有五人,入到的更包括神科工程系及醫學院。此外不少學生亦被名牌大學如皇家學院、倫敦大學、諾定咸大學、香港大學等取錄,成績令人眼前一亮。

那邊廂,CSFC轉手後著重牧養,教育焦點和學校文化都有所改變,大家都疑惑,究竟學校會從此朝著一間全面性的學校路線走,抑或繼續行學術主導的方向?沒有Mr. &Mrs. Sarwar的日子,CSFC何去何從?驕人的表現會否因教育路線改變而有影響?影響是好是壞?

這邊廂,OIC在Yasmin統領下到底會是全新的一間CSFC,定抑或如大台膠劇能夠後來居上,吐氣揚眉,創出溏心風暴式結局?很多很多問號,答案都是未知數,但唯一可以肯定的是,這會是英國私校界的一場好戲,值得我們追看下去。

#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.
