【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】Leweston School成就文武全才
「聽說英國Leweston School校風不錯,我應否為女兒報讀這間寄宿學校?」

位於Sherborne的Leweston School,是間一條龍學校。幼稚園和小學部為男女校,而中學和高中部則只收女生,是一間校風純樸,學生文武兼備的天主教學校。

Leweston非常著重全人發展,同時學術成績突出,對國際生亦非常關顧。學校提供不少優質課外活動和額外的學科培訓課程。學校對學生成績有一定要求,但不至於讓女生們感到過大壓力。所以,若你的女兒入讀Leweston,應該不至於過分吃力。
 
為提升學生的學習效能,Leweston特別提供學習輔導課程,並且根據學生須要每年調整課程,針對不同學生的學習需要來準備適合她們的課程,大大提升學生的學習效能。

Leweston School英文科屬全英國數一數二,曾獲Good Schools Guide頒發英語文學優異獎。另外學校亦特別重點培訓學生的辯論技巧。今年一月有三位學生代表Leweston出戰Rotary Youth Speaks Senior Public Speaking competition,辯論題目為The Value of Solitude,難度相當高。
 
除此之外,學校亦會舉行不同種類的課外活動以增強學生的學術實力。例如學校曾經邀請作家Caroline Green作講座嘉賓,亦讓學生參加英國本地文藝活動,如Sherborne Literary Session。另外,Leweston亦跟不少英國本地高等學府關係緊密,如Bristol University的化學系。因此學生可按興趣作學術研究和撰寫論文,為入讀大學作準備。

除了跟學術有關的課外活動,學校亦有一些「另類」的選擇,如專為Sixth Form學生而設的品酒美食證書課程(Leiths Basic Certificate in Food and Wine) 。此證書為國際認可,而Leweston是全英12間提供此課程的學校之一。曾有英識學生跟我說,這個課程不僅讓她學會烹飪技巧,也提升了她的組織和應變能力,對往後升讀大學非常有幫助。

Year 9女生可參加「週末文化遊」(cultural weekend trip),前往法國巴黎交流。學校亦會不定期舉行遊學團,讓學生到西班牙和德國等地學習當地語言及文化。

另外,運動亦佔Leweston校園生活的重要一部分。學生在曲棍球、馬術和投球(netball)方面表現尤其出眾。學校亦是英國少數提供五項全能訓練的寄宿學校之一。校園提供的運動設施達世界級,讓學生能得到最好的培訓。

總括而言,若你的女兒想追求學術成績之餘也想進一步發展她的語文或運動方面的潛能,Leweston School的確是不錯的選擇。

#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.
