【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】鑽石型學校​Berkhamsted​ 豐富學生閱歷
位於英國Hertfordshire的Berkhamsted School距離倫敦非常接近,同時亦座擁Chiltern漂亮的郊野景色。


Berkhamsted其中一大特點,就是學校的「鑽石型」學制。學校能同時具備男校、女校及男女校的優點。Berkhamsted的男生和女生在11歲之前均會在同一校園一起上課。學生在初中階段(11至16歲)分開男生和女生上課,與自己相同性別的同學一起學習。直到高中(Sixth Form)才再男女混合上課。此謂「鑽石型」學制。

雖然男生和女生在初中分開上課,但不代表學校完全不會讓同學與異性接觸。Berkhamsted高中時期會組團一起外出參觀,或是參觀高等學府等等。透過不同的課外活動如Combined Cadet Force,男生和女生都會聚在一起在課室外學習。

而Berkhamsted成立的其中一大宗旨,就是讓學生儘量多接觸不同種類的課外活動,以協助他們全人發展。​

表演藝術是Berkhamsted學生的強項之一。學校學生出品的音樂和話劇水準高,而且音樂種類和劇目亦很多元化。學生有機會在不同類型的場地進行表演。例如校內的Centenary Theatre無論座位、舞台及燈光設備均媲美倫敦West End百老匯級數劇院。

除此之外,Berkhsamsted在體育方面的資源亦非常充裕

體育設施方面,學校設有六個Eton Fives(傳統英式球類活動)球場,而且有不同種類的健身器材。學校聘請專業教練進行校隊訓練,資源和水準均別具一格。

運動對學生身心發展非常重要,而Berkhamsted亦十分注重這方面的栽培。​學校十分鼓勵學生參與各種戶外活動。當中最受Berkhamsted學生歡迎的活動包括挑戰英國著名第二高山Snowdonia及阿爾卑斯山,向難度挑戰。​

不想參加過於刺激​的學生,亦可選擇露營等初階活動。他們可學會鑽木取火、搭建帳棚等基本野外求生技能(bushcraft),另外嘗試跟團隊一起面對挑戰。校方為同學預備好食物,學生成功鑽木取火後便可一嚐野外煮食,學習原始煮食法。

通過​林林總總的課外學習體驗,除了豐富Berkhamsted學生閱歷,也讓他們明白團隊合作和服務社群的重要性。這些軟技能(soft skills)對於將來進入社會無比重要,是課本上教不到的重要知識。

#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.
