【信報:寄宿學校攻略】Woodard三大名校

很多人都聽過英國Woodard Schools的名字,卻未必知其所指。Woodard Schools其實是一群隸屬於英國聖公會教派機構Woodard Foundation的學校,今時今日有小學、有中學,亦有公立、有私立。這個教會機構由牧師Nathanial Woodard 建立,他有見當時的教育只屬皇室貴族的權利,學校如Eton、Harrow這些公校,學生非富則貴,教育成了一件完全離地的事。他於是決定要創立一個辦學機構,為中產以下的普羅大眾提供讀書機會。由Nathaniel Woodard 於1848年開辦Woodard Schools的第一間學校Lancing College,至近170年後的今日,Woodard Schools是聖公會在英格蘭和威爾斯最大的學校團體,擁有23間私立學校、17間公立或私立學校作其附屬。當中要數規模最大的,是擁有超過1500名學生的The Littlehampton Academy、數最新近加入的則是2014才歸於旗下的Broadwater Manor School。

 

Woodard Schools的名字在英國響噹噹,當中不只因為屬下學校夠多,而是這些學校都以優異的品德教育,贏盡了全國的聲望。當中,尤以Ellesmere College、King’s College, Taunton,以及Abbots Bromley Schools for Girls這3間地位超凡,原因除了3間學校都是歷史悠久的第一代Woodard Schools,3校既有Woodard學校共同的優點,百多年來在不同領域又各自各精采,備受英國內外家長追捧是難免的事。

 

淑女搖籃

Abbots Bromley Schools for Girls是建校於1874年,是Woodard Schools中間首間女校,現在中六以上亦收男生,全校有近三百學生。位於Staffordshire的它擁有非一般的校園設施,馬術中心享負盛名,更有自設的世界級舞蹈學院Alkins School of Dance,難怪百多年來它成了培養氣質非凡淑女的搖籃。跟abbots Bromley Schools for Girls 相反,Ellesmere College於1879年開校時是男校,今天則變成男女校。Ellesmere很重視學生的身心成長,校園氣氛歡樂融洽。學校不單在戲劇、音樂、藝術及體育成績驕人,學術亦一樣出色,有近85%學生能夠考上第一志願大學。

 

至於位於Somerset的King’s College, Taunton歷史比起Ellesmere College短一年,但威水史卻不遑多讓。學校曾出過的舊生更有諾貝爾物理獎得主Antony Hewish、企業家Ted Nash、軍事歷史學家John Keegan。該校去年A-Level的成績亦相當可觀。

 

這3間Woodard學校的校長於10月曾親臨香港參與升學活動,讓一眾家長深入認識Woodard Schools這三大百年名校。
