【立場新聞】踢學生出校下令禁拍拖ㅤRuthin 非常校長強勢救校

香港曾經有殺校潮,不少成年人的母校可能已「被殺」,也有些瀕臨執笠的學校,在英明校長領導下成功「救校」。英國很多學校同樣有閉校之憂,當地私校界近年出產一位非常校長,頻頻使出辣招整頓學校,因而聞名,他正正是 Ruthin School 的校長 Toby Belfield。他提出踢學生出校、不准學生談戀愛等顛覆現代教育觀的措施,更重要的是力推亞洲學生獎學金,令全校多達三分一屬中國學生,偏偏在強勢管治下 Ruthin 排名全英五十大,不少學生入讀牛津劍橋,穩坐神奇四校之一寶座。

Ruthin School 每年學費近三萬五英鎊,非常校長 Toby 上任後,第一件事要求校董會批出奬學金,吸引亞洲最頂尖學生,令他們以優惠學費甚至免費入讀;學校同時採取亞洲國際學校式經營,雖然令校園氣氛似深圳多過英國,但的確迅速提升學校成績及排名,這種做法備受英國私校界傳統派攻擊,甚至有不滿 Toby 的校董,即時辭職以明志。

令 Ruthin School 聞名的絕對不止「亞洲化」,Toby 前年爆出「踢學生出校」驚人措施,他認為學校過度收生,為了騰出學位容納新生,指示下屬要踢走部分原有學生。此舉雖然被英國傳媒形容為公關災難,但學校卻未有真的受重創;事實上,當學位不再有萬全保證,成績、紀律欠佳的學生有可能被踢走,學生自然不敢放肆造次,Toby 一直深信措施可清瘀血,必定得到國際家長的支持。

繼踢人出校,Toby 去年再有新創舉:不准學生談戀愛。他表明對校內拍拖「零容忍」,如果發現有人偷偷戀愛,餘下只有兩條死路,第一,踢出校;第二,「畫花」學生推介信,再次令學校受廣泛關注。我早前在香港見到 Toby 談及此事,他打從心底深信家長會支持「禁愛令」,「Samuel,我們上了國際新聞,太好了,家長們會愛死我們了。」

Ruthin School 並非英國私校校長大會 HMC 成員,但「非會員」Toby 卻曾經受邀到 HMC 會議上演講,講解如何拯救一間面臨執笠的學校。不少 HMC 會員不將 Toby 放在眼內,有參加過會議的校長形容 Toby「insane」,但不得不承認,Ruthin 經「亞洲化」及推行新校政後,成績及排名均有所提升,更重要是解救了學校的困境。這位非常校長的改革決心及管理哲學,的確值得參考借鏡。

#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.
