【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】Moreton的商業奇才與全人學習

「最近聽到不少有關Moreton School的消息,這間學校好像不錯,我應該幫女兒報讀嗎?」

當然好。Moreton Hall School是英國有名的寄宿校,同時有日校課程供學生報讀。學校取錄3-18歲的女生及3-11歲的男生,換句話說即是由Year 7開始是女校。學校位於北Shropshire,鄰近Oswestry和威爾斯邊境。

除了傳統的寄宿學校元素,Moreton Hall亦有些突出之處令其表現鶴立雞群。

第一,Moreton的課程多元化,有普通話、希臘文、拉丁文及食物科技等讓學生選讀。第二,學校亦有不少學習深化計劃涵蓋多個範疇,令同學更能盡用Moreton Hall的資源。

另外,Moreton Hall對於學術研究和推動並非紙上談兵。學校有多個著名的學會,例如Jenner Medical Society和Pi Society,讓學生能了解更多有關各行各業的發展,例如工程學和數學。

我認為Moreton Hall較其他學校優勝的,是他們的Moreton Enterprises — 學校自行籌辦的企業。Lower Sixth form的女生們有機會參與其中,並營運五間零售商店及四間服務性店舖。當中包括文具店、時裝店甚至Moreton自己的Barclays Bank分行。

透過Moreton Enterprises,香港女生能更接近當地社區,並與當地企業家互相交流、挑戰,感受英國獨特的商業文化。整個活動能為學生日後報讀大學甚至求職做好準備,讓她們表現更突出,令人眼前一亮。

很多較重視子女學業成績的家長,往往會輕視了這種社會經驗的重要性。Moreton Hall沒有「畫公仔畫出腸」式推銷這個program對女生soft skills(這個詞已經開始被英國一些學校濫用了)的提升,反而是從實際的工作流程,如營運、團隊管理、小組工作、解難、decision-making和商業談判等過程中自行學習相關的Soft skills。

除了商業表現傑出,Moreton Hall的運動表現亦出色。學校是區內English Lacrosse Association Centre of Excellence,打Lacrosse打出名堂。同時有一個非常受女生歡迎的網球課程,女生的Hockey(曲棍球)水準亦極高。

整體而言,雖然Moreton Hall各方面表現平均且出色,但學校並不selective,香港女生能在優美環境下發展所長。學習商業精神之餘亦能好好培養她們對學習的熱忱。

#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.
