【南早教育網:寄宿學校攻略】麻瓜的霍格華茲 Ampleforth College

位於英國約克郡的Ampleforth College成立於1802年,專門招收13至18歲的學生。雖然地處約克郡近郊,但距離倫敦只需兩個半小時火車車程,交通亦算方便。校舍佔地3000英畝,當中有教學樓、十座住宿大樓、教堂和各種運動設施。校園放眼盡是原野美景,有樹林亦有湖畔。

 

學校主要教學大樓充滿維多利亞風格,更因此被哈利波特製作團隊選作魔法學校取景地。Ampleforth跟Oratory和Stonyhurst三間學校均有「Catholic Eton」之稱,在眾多英國北部天主教學校中較受歡迎。學校起初規模不大,只有70名男學生在修院(Ampleforth Abbey)上課,由神父授課,後來才有學校大樓陸續建成。現時的學生非常幸運,可盡享各種設施,例如音樂館、劇院、室外球場、工藝室等。學校在02年首度招收女學生入讀Sixth Form,擁有200年歷史的傳統男校自此轉型為男女校。


 

學校的課外活動非常多元,學生可參與多達二十多種運動,當中包括比較少見的回力球、袋棍球 ( lacrosse ) 和馬球,讓學生不用限制於主流的運動項目。學校亦大力鼓勵學生發展潛能,無論音樂、舞台、美術、海陸空訓練及公益服務都有相應的獎學金可供申請。

 

作為天主教學校,Ampleforth極著重宗教及道德培育,年中有不少慈善或宗教活動。今年六月,部分高年級學生就參加了The Big Walk 2016,為有先天缺陷人士步行籌款。該活動的難度媲美香港毅行者,參加的同學通宵在約克郡山間步行足足72公里,中途更要在野外紮營過夜,可見學生毅力和善心兼備。


 

學生課外活動出色之餘,成績亦表現理想。學校連續八年有超過七成學生在高考考獲A*B,去年有近10%學生順利進入牛津和劍橋大學。即使學校成績優異,收生門檻亦制定得宜。若想孩子在發揮潛能之餘又能在學業成績有良好表現,Ampleforth College屬不錯之選。

#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.
