【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】如何為熱愛音樂的子女選校?

「我的女兒想將來在寄宿學校進一步提升小提琴技巧,Mabel你有什麼英國學校推介?」

家長看到孩子某方面的天份,想他們得到更好的栽培,絕對無可厚非。至於該讓他們報讀專科學校還是「普通」學校,的確需要深思熟慮,因為此決定對孩子的未來路向有莫大影響。

若你問英國有什麼學校在音樂方面特別出色,Wells Cathedral School絕對是其中之一。經過學校Specialist Music Scheme第一次甄選之後,校方會向考生發出成績通知。優秀的考生有機會可申請獎學金。提提您,下一次面試將會在十二月三日舉行。

Wells Cathedral這間學校提供各種優質音樂課程,大力培養具音樂天分的學生。學校的課程架構包含各種世界級音樂課程,由弦樂、敲擊樂、爵士樂到作曲,應有盡有。學校師資亦非同凡響。校園裡音樂文化濃厚,不時都會有午後音樂會和大師特别課程。學生可謂真正浸淫在音樂文化氛圍之中。

若你去過Wells Cathedral,就會明白為何我會對它如此高度評價。Wells保留了最傳統英國寄宿學校的精髓。學校跟Somerset和Devon海岸相近,亦鄰近市中心Bath和Bristol。校園四周景色壯麗,學生可趁著周末感受大自然。

此外,名校Wellington College的音樂水準亦非常高,屬全英非專科音樂學院頭五位。學校投放在音樂設施和資源屬全國頂尖,不少優秀的學生有機會與國家專業管弦樂團同台演出,互相交流和學習。

Wellington College亦設有音樂人材培訓計劃,為有志成為專業音樂家的學生提供音樂技巧的培訓,另外亦提供機會讓學生在不同地方演出,累積表演經驗。

另外學校亦有一些延伸課程,讓學生可學習音樂考試範圍以外的各種樂器技巧。修讀延伸課程的同學在報考GCSE時可以豁免某些科目。

以上兩間音樂學校均為英國最頂尖的音樂學校之一。不同之處在於Wells Cathedral是全國唯一一間以寄宿形式運作的音樂專科學院,而Welington則是音樂訓練特別出色的傳統寄宿學校。

希望以上資料能讓你選校時有多一點方向,決定女兒適合偏重音樂培訓的學校,還是以學科為主的「普通學校」。

#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.
