【頭條日報:升學專家有話兒】私立學校A-level成績亮眼

​A-level與GCSE已經相繼放榜,兩個考試結果整體都有下滑的趨勢。A-level成績更加是承接過去四年的跌勢,全英得到最高級別學生的比例創了五年來的新低。

  

整個英國,即英格蘭、威爾斯及北愛爾蘭當中,威爾斯就最失威,攞A*人數大跌。去年威爾斯共有百分之七點三考生攞A*,今年卻剩下百分之六點六。威爾斯男生取A*比例的跌幅更達兩個百分點,由百分之七點八驟降至百分之六點七。

  

不過,如果這樣就以為威爾斯在本年度A-level丟盡了架,顏面無存,又錯噃。根據每日電訊報以Independent Schools Council (ISC)數據所作的私立學校排名榜所見,今年二百九十一間有報考A-level的私立學校中,獨佔鰲頭的,正正是處於威爾斯首府卡迪夫的Cardiff Sixth Form College。該校今年有考生一百三十三人,取得A或A*級數的有九成二,成績非常亮眼。如此佳績,將第二位的Westminster School拋離一段距離。

  

不過呢,如果以「進步才算贏」來計,Cardiff Sixth Form College今年便不能算贏家了,因為該校去年取A或A*考生比例,高達九成四,相比之下今屆表現已算遜色!

  

其餘能以卓越A-level成績,躋身該排名榜頭十名的私立學校計有:第三位Magdalen College School;第四位 North London Collegiate School;第五位Queen Ethelburga's College;第六位Wycombe Abbey School;第七位King Edward's School, Birmingham;第八位The Faculty of Queen Ethelburga's;第九位Guildford High School for Girls,及第十位Guildford High School for Girls。

  

至於A-level考生少於二十五名的小型私立學校,今屆名列前茅的分別是The Edinburgh Academy、St George's School for Girls, Edinburgh及Lime House School。

  

瀏覽這些私立學校名單,我知道不少學校九月都會來香港舉辦招生活動,當中不乏一些響亮名字如Harrow、Oundle、 Badminton、Wellington、Shrewsbury等。大家慕着如雷貫耳的名氣去參加這些名校的招生活動,當作見識參考無可厚非,但如果真心長遠想為子女鋪築往英國名牌大學的青雲路,我倒覺得有時主攻較名不見經傳的學校反而有着數,此話怎講?下星期等我分享一下我的見解心得。

#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.
