【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】二三線中學激發求勝心
​我九歲便被家人送去英國留學,中學唸的Greshams名氣一般。當時自己的成績也不太標青,入到這樣的中學,身邊的同學都咁高咁大,聽上去好像註定前途黯淡,偏偏反而因為如此,我過了我人生最精采的日子,也為我日後考到心儀的名牌大學鋪了路。

        
中學時期,校內競爭不怎麼激烈,我毋須使出洪荒之力,已能名列前茅。因不是精英學校,像我這樣的一介草民在校園也得到很多機會,甚麼都有得嘗試:一個香港仔來到英語國家的學校竟然可以入朗誦隊、辯論隊,甚至話劇隊。運動場上我玩田徑、打板球、欖球、曲棍球,都入到校隊。

        
多姿多采的校園生活給我帶來一張亮眼的履歷,更重要是,我的中學生涯過得很開心很充實,很有自信也很有成就感,我初次淺嚐了做「風頭躉」的滋味,意猶未盡,造就了我後來學習上好勝的心理,要考好A-Level爭入出色大學的雄心壯志。

        
事過境遷,當然會想到What if?如果當日家人硬把我送入一線名校,我的路會變成怎樣?不難想像,在精英雲集的著名學府,小弟我既非家勢顯赫,成績又非超凡出眾,大多數機會便不屬於你。功課追得吃力,課外活動又處處碰壁,十幾歲人仔自我形象都未成熟,卻先慣了處處矮人一截充滿挫敗,將來考大學未輸人都已先輸陣。

        
Eton、Harrow這些鼎鼎大名,聽到都令人心折,之不過,名校如雷貫耳的榮耀未必人人有福消受。我常常提醒家長,大學直接影響就業職途,一定非最好學校不揀,但中學讀書講個人成績,學校A-Level排名其實幫不到幾多,最終關鍵是學生自己,所以選間二、三線中學,子女可以擁有充實又開心的中學生涯,更能讓他們嚐嚐成功的滋味——信我,成功的滋味如酒,非常容易上癮。一旦試過,從而引發的上進心和推動力,非同小可。

#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.
