【南早教育網:寄宿學校攻略】低調地發光發亮 - 英國名女校Badminton School
近年來,不少英識家長向我表示「像Badminton和Cheltenham Ladies College這種名校,香港人太多了。雖然好想女兒考入,卻沒有信心讓她在充滿港人的地方成長。」這種說法並非空穴來風,因為像Badminton和CLC這類學校,是香港學生 ( 尤其女拔萃 ) 的熱門升學之選。然而,我仍會毫不猶豫地向各位家長推介,特別是Badminton。原因為何?容許我先賣一下關子,答案在文末揭曉。

這一所英國「標題黨」學校,實則上雖然與羽毛球沒甚麼關係,但Badminton School仍然是quietly brilliant,連校長自都說是一顆「Hidden Gem」。雖然名字不及Wycombe Abbey、Cheltenham Ladies College一般響噹噹,但Badminton在各方面都表現出色。先講成績,2016年A-Level A*-A有66.9%,GCSE A*-B則有90.2%,在League Table上排行31,比去年排行74位一下次躍升了43位,「飛躍進步」四字是最佳的形容。畢業生大部分都能考入英國名大學,例如UCL、Imperial和牛津,家長們對於女生的出路不必擔心。
 
Badminton的傑出,當然不止於成績方面。學校年中培育出不少音樂人才,女生們在學校可以參與大大小小的音樂演出、校內排練等。女生們絕大部分都會學習超過一種樂器,當中包括管弦樂和交響樂等。Badminton也培育過不少音樂人才,在周六時出席Royal College,或是於National Children’s Orchestra表演等。

Badminton表現如此出色,但從學生身上卻感受到他們的低調。有別於一般有種貴族味道的名校,Badminton女生反倒給人一種平易近人、友善而開明的感覺。她們不會因為自己是Badminton學生而過分高傲自滿,但卻會因為自己是Badminton學生而勇於面對面前的一切挑戰。為了讓女生能夠盡情、care-free地享受運動,學校的運動設施多數設於可步行的範圍中。當中有網球場、籃網球場、健身中心以及25米室內泳池等。眾多運動之中,曲棍球和籃網球特別出色,不少女同學被選入國家隊為國家運動效力。
 
 
座落於城市與鄉郊之間的Bristol,正好與Badminton低調而出色的表現混然天成,成為難得的全人女校。難怪連Good Schools Guide都說,「Badminton文武全才,唯獨需要將其光芒更積極地向四方八面散發。」
 
 
好喇,為何Samuel在這麼多港生讀Badminton的情況下還要熱烈推介?原因有二。第一,因為儘管學校多港生,她們都好少聚在一起「圍爐取暖」,一同思鄉。反之,她們會積極參與學校活動,與英國本土同學混熟,不開口問的話甚至會以為她們是BBC。第二,就是新任校長Mrs Rebecca Tear上年來港時曾向我明言,會對過量的國際生人數採取措施應對,意思即是未來的Badminton School將會較少有港生,入學門檻相對會提高,亦確保能入學的女生們有相當質素。
 
所以,各位家長們不必擔心,Samuel在此向你保證,能夠考入Badminton的話,你們一定不會失望。

#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.
