為了運動,你可以去到幾盡?

說到英國寄宿學校的運動,你想到甚麼?身穿白球衣的健碩板球手,奮力揮拍打向紅色小球?膝上沾泥,汗流浹背橫衝直撞的欖球手?還是裝潢宏偉的運動場?傳統運動在英國的地位不跌反升,不少寄宿學校費盡心思只為栽培學生成為世界級運動選手,即使學業至上,學校亦絞盡腦汁安排課程令學生在成績和運動之間取得平衡。

 

運動的取捨

在9間被認證為WAoS (World Academy of Sport)的學校當中,英國學校佔三席。有WAoS認証的學校代表他們能夠讓學生同時兼顧IB課程(國際預科文憑課程)及嚴格的體育訓練。由於課堂彈性高,在WAoS學校的學生在運動和學業上都能有出色表現。

 

Ellesmere College在2015年11月時獲WAoS認証,現在更成為AFEC (Athlete Friendly Education Centre) ,顧名思義,就是校園提供彈性高的學習環境,將學業和運動訓練、比賽等元素融合。IOC (International Olympic Committee) 對AFEC學校非常支持,尤其在選校方面,會為具體育潛質的學生及其家人提供有用資訊,並根據學生學業和運動的目標選擇適合的學校 。

 

WAoS和Plymouth College是合作伙伴,其IB課程旨在鼓勵學生挑戰自我,培養前瞻性思維,使Plymouth出產大量出色的世界級運動員,並在體育界屢穫成就。Plymouth是世界著名的游泳學校,師資優良,游泳課程的教練是奧運金牌得主。而課程亦能讓學員在泳池還是課堂內都能出類拔萃。

 

BTEC 運動文憑(英國國家高等教育文憑)

除了WAoS學校在運動上有特別安排,一些私立學校現亦有開辦獨立BTEC體育文憑。BTEC是A-Levels, IB以及Pre-U 以外的選擇,較為職業導向,讓學生透過實踐和學習增進實用知識,幫助學生升讀高等學位或是投入社會工作。學生需要學習寫論文、演講、並在課堂活動中表現自己,是公開試沒有涵蓋的內容。

 

Mount Kelly的BTEC運動課程

Mount Kelly是其中一所提供第二和第三級BTEC Extended體育文憑的學校。BTEC第三級程度相當於三科GCSE或A-Levels,並受UCAS認可。Mount Kelly設有Performance and Excellence 運動精英計劃。表現出眾的運動員在兩年內修讀19個學分課程。期間,學生會在營養學和心理學接受專門教育,亦會在自選運動學科中接受特訓以提升表現。

 

Mount Kelly的BTEC運動課程好處多不勝數:學生會參與和Mount Kelly Adventure Centre合辦的戶外活動課程。除了每週三小時的運動課,亦有不少體育行業的實習機會。從教師角度來說,體育BTEC課程為教練們提供教學經驗和實踐理論的機會 。

 

Millfield的BTEC運動課程

Millfield是另一所提供BTEC三級證書的學校。學校的團體運動尤其著名,校內一流的體育設施更羨煞旁人,如Millfield Institute of Sport and Wellbeing。不僅是運動和體能,學生還會在情緒和飲食營養上得到協助。

 

在2012年倫敦奧運會中,Millfield在眾多學校中有最多出賽健兒。學校得到不少奧運會官方機構的支持,亦與英國知名的體育大學以及各大體育會有密切的合作關係。

#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.
