【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】Oundle、Dulwich風格迥異

上周提過UKiset這統一入學考試,考一次就可以用來報五間學校,包括不少香港家長非常熟悉的Oundle School。

  

講名氣,Oundle未追得上Eton、Wycombe Abbey等頂級名校,但學校的學術成績在英國依然名列前茅。上年A LevelA*B達八成五,而GCSE A*A則有八成四,八成學生考入Russell Group大學,考入牛津劍橋大不乏人。

  

作為傳統名校,Oundle非常重視全人發展,為學生提供多元課餘活動選擇,欖球、足球、游泳等傳統運動外,還有像愛丁堡獎勵計劃和軍事訓練等英國獨有的活動。我自己親身到過Oundle作School Visit,學校在同名小鎮內,治安非常好,加上學校與社區不時舉辦義工等活動,學生特別容易融入英式社區生活,成為英國人的一份子。上文講過,Oundle還是英國碩果僅存行House Dining System的學校,老師、舍監與學生會於宿舍一齊用膳,學生更能感受到「一家親」的歸屬感。這獨有的英倫小鎮文化,可能正是Oundle令香港家長趨之若鶩的一大原因。

  

與Oundle正好相映成趣的,是位於倫敦南面、有近四百年歷史的名牌男校Dulwich College。校園就近倫敦市中心,卻佔「旺中帶靜」之利,坐擁十二個欖球場和十個標準英式足球場,四周綠草如茵。校長Dr Spence開宗明義學校收生揀擇,並採取啟發性的教育方式,提高學生求知慾,讓他們走上「學者」之路。Dulwich這教學方針明顯有效,該校學生成績傑出,一六年A-Level A*-A有六成一,GCSE A*-A則有八成五。Dulwich可能令一些家長卻步之處是寄宿生比例較低,約有一百四十名學生在校寄宿,且主要是國際學生。這情況有利有弊,想投入英國寄宿文化,Dulwich或不是最理想之選,不過,能提早和來自世界各地學生互相交流,何嘗不是入大學前的最佳熱身?

  

Oundle和Dulwich同樣優秀卻風格迥異,哪一種比較適合子女?最好先和子女洽談,有時間能赴英國考察更佳。做足功課,為子女選最適合的學校也易如反掌。
