【頭條日報:英名校大比拼】Headington、Badminton精英女校兩生花

Headington、Badminton兩間著名女校相近處頗多。兩者都在小型城市,前者在Oxford,後者在Bristol。兩校成績都出色,也備受香港家長歡迎。

英國的女校買少見少。這兩間都屬Tier1,公開試成績不相伯仲。二○一六年A-Level Headington取得A*-B的比例有87%,略遜於Badminton的90%。不過同年GCSE Headington得A-A*級的有80%,微微超前Badminton的76%,各贏一個回合,學術方面之優秀無分軒輊。

難怪兩校的香港學生不乏來女拔、協恩的尖子。但也正因如此,有些家長詬病Headington、Badminton收的港生背景過於單一,把囡囡遠道重洋送去英國仍是周旋於香港名校女生群中,收不到擴闊生活圈子之效。事實上,Headington的全宿生佔近兩成,大部份是來自三十個國籍國際學生,而Badminton的國際學生比例則是16%。

Headington校園位於牛津市中心。學校在全寄宿的選擇外,也提供半周寄宿及隨時住校。這做法可以吸引到更多本地生,但從海外全宿生角度,這種如酒店形式的寄宿選擇實在有擾正常的寄宿文化和生活。

至於Badminton學生年齡由三歲至十八歲,換言之很多學生是從幼稚園,小學,不靠成績一直升上來。而該校最終在A-Level及GCSE有全國頂尖表現,證明學校一路過來的學術訓練極具實力。校內也有一個傳統,是學期終結時每個學生都要先親自向每個老師握手致意才可離校,足見校方對品格修養的培育是多麼重視。

Badminton全校有六成學生寄宿,宿生多是A-Level學生。不過學校新校長Rebecca Tear銳意會在收生上取得平衡減少國際學生比例。我和這位英國年輕女校長傾談過,對她的教育理念非常欣賞。相信Badminton在她領導下必有一番大作為。今年九月兩校代表會來港招生,有意入讀兩間精英女校可以致電68715840。

#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.
