【SCMP Education Post:Boarding Insider】北方「抵讀」之選-Bootham School

上回提及到倫敦近郊名校Caterham School,今回介紹一下北方Yorkshire約克名校Bootham School。如果家長有其他原因,仍然堅持不想選擇近倫敦的學校,York附近也有不少好學校選擇,Bootham就是其中之一。

Bootham School被英國Telegraph選為全英十大最「抵讀」的寄宿學校之一,學費為28,115鎊,學費不高之餘又提供高質素教育,成為家長近年來的北方學校焦點之一。

曾有一位「做足功課」的家長來問我:「Samuel,Bootham上年A-Level A*至A只有四成,GCSE A*至A只有六成,怎看都不算名校之列,為何我的朋友說這學校很好呢?」重點就在於,英國學校主張的「高質素教育」並非只依據成績去決定,更重要的是學生有否在學習過程中受到啟發?個人專長是否有足夠發展空間?而Bootham School則在這幾點之中都做得甚佳,能在多方面取得平衡。

對於成績,Bootham相信學生的好奇心、自信和正確價值觀是提升成績的背後動力,故此學校主張以學生為本,老師以輔助性質協助學生學習,並共同營造愉快和最適合的學習環境,盡可能將學生潛能充份發揮。而亦因如此,教師和學生關係親密,互相交流切磋,學生大多主動學習,自然也令成績有所提升,是相輔相乘的雙贏局面。

 

運動方面,Bootham School也絕不遜色。學校於近年培育出國際級劍擊運動員和奧運泳手、單車手,學校在曲棍球、板球及足球方面都有傑出成就,在區內頗有名氣。運動設施亦十分齊全,有大型體育館、室內泳池等供學生使用。爸媽若想孩子在運動方面有所發展,Bootham也是很好的選擇。

而以上種種,都不及我最欣賞Bootham前校長Jonathan Taylor的教學原則。他認為「學生是最令Bootham驕傲的元素,他們的友善、自律、自信能彰顯出其潛能,並帶動興趣的發展。Bootham學生是有責任感而且反應聰敏的一群,有著學校教職員和專業同事的協助,他們定能有出色的發展。」Mr. Taylor從不居功,一心只希望學生在Bootham盡展潛能,提升自我迎接社會,並做一個對社區負責任,善良的人。

#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.
