【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】牛津區讀書哪所學校好?

「基於個人原因,我想十二歲的兒子在牛津區讀書。Mabel你有學校推介給我嗎?」

說到牛津的寄宿學校,Abingdon和St. Edward’s Oxford即時浮現在我腦海。

Abingdon位於牛津南面約十英里的全男校,提供傳統GCSEs和A-Levels課程,並同時有Pre-U科目。最近,Abingdon更取消了AS Level的學科,讓學生在選科上有更大自由度,並根據自己的喜好和成績配對及組合選修科目。

Abingdon School另一大賣點,叫做「The Other Half」,指的是學校的課外活動。Abingdon的課外活動極為多元化,有超過一百種,甚至會邀請正在冒起的英國影視紅星、歌手、演員和記者等參與其中。

學校對同學的關顧也十分貼心。例如會為每位同學提供六年期的職業導向,讓他們更了解自己的前路,並作最佳準備。

除了Abingdon School,St Edward’s Oxford也是牛津區內值得一提的學校。

13-18歲的同學們在St Edward’s可以感受一下廣受推崇的full boarding全寄宿,而且St Edward's的海外留學生數目亦不多。學校最有名的是其多元化全人教育,以及培育學生的學術技巧、批判思考、辯論才能、溝通能力以及團隊合作精神。

首年入讀St Edward’s的學生(稱之為shell year)會在上述的範疇有所培訓,同時亦有機會感受一些英國地道文化活動,例如粘土射擊(clay pigeon shooting)等,讓同學們互相認識,在第一年時已培養出深厚情誼。所以香港的好動男生們一定會很快適應到St Edward’s的生活。

除了學校,其實於牛津區及近郊也有一大堆景點,相信寄宿學校學生也會樂在其中。例如野生動物園、牛津本地佳餚、Cotswolds的美景、游湖和四出游走鄉間攝影,都是住在牛津獨享的福利。不得不提的當然是牛津的市中心,每一次我去英國,牛津市都會給我無窮的驚喜。

總括而言,牛津的Abingdon School和St Edward’s Oxford都是值得一去的學校。

如果你的孩子快將16歲,則可以考慮St Clare’s Oxford(高校)。學校提供全球歷史最悠久的IB課程,而其優異成績亦有目共睹。St Clare’s Oxford不算是太selective的學校,成績屬中上的同學不妨考慮。
