【SCMP Education Post:Boarding Insider】倫敦近郊名校Caterham School

不少家長來找我尋求升學意見時,都會有一個前提:要遠離倫敦。原因是,他們認為近倫敦的學校既沒法享受英國的鄉郊之美,孩子讀書又會被五光十色的大城市風采所迷倒,會不努力讀書,只顧在倫敦享受生活。而事實上,有不少英國街知巷聞的名校都在首都圈內,例如Harrow School、Dulwich College等。如果你仍然堅持要遠離倫敦的話,有一所近郊的名校,兼有近城市的好處,亦有明娓的風景-Caterham School。

 

你可能會問,「為何Samuel這麼推薦近倫敦的學校呢?」其實與其說是「推薦」,不如話是提供options讓家長放低對倫敦的成見。Caterham起初是男校,到90年代才慢慢開始接受女生報讀,至今已成為成績、運動和課外活動表現佳非常出色的英國名校。

Caterham創校於1811年,有超過二百年歷史。校園位於英國南部Surrey,亦在倫敦的南方。距離倫敦希斯路機場只需30至45分鐘車程,大約是銅鑼灣去觀塘的距離吧。從宏觀來說,Caterham的位置可謂「靜中帶旺」,有Surrey的美景之餘兼有就近倫敦的地利,方便家長前往探望孩子,孩子亦可在周末到倫敦補充生活必需品。

 

除了地理位置優越之外,Caterham School的教育理念也值得爸媽留意。Caterham一直主張透過啟發學生的自學心和提升他們的個人修養,去維持學校優秀的教育質素。校方主張提升學生的獨立思考,提早培育他們裝備自己迎接大學以及工作市場的需要,教學原則頗有前瞻性。

Caterham在啟發學生思維的同時,不忘鼓勵他們多發掘自己所長。學校有Combined Cadet Force和Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme  ( 愛丁堡獎勵計劃 ) 等英國著名活動讓學生一展所長。另有較文靜的活動例如合唱團、管弦樂團等音樂;Cross-country、射箭、劍擊等受普遍香港學生喜歡的運動,可謂包辦了學生的全人發展。

最後談談成績。Caterham School 2015年GCSE A*-A有80%,A-Level A*-B高達88%,畢業生多升讀Russell Group名校,如牛津劍橋、Exeter、UCL、Bristol等。所以,學校在倫敦,與其成績和教育質素沒太大關係,家長要留意的,除了地理位置,還是學校提供的關顧、學習環境、配套和畢業生質素等。而Caterham就是位於就近倫敦,而教育質素非常高的名校好例子。
