【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】魔鬼藏在細節 參觀學校有什麼要注意?

最近有家長問我:「Mabel我打算跟兒子一起去英國參觀四間英國私校。有什麼特別的地方需要留意?」

挑選學校的確是一個漫長而傷腦筋的過程,我絕對明白。不過你願意花時間跟孩子一起到英國參觀學校,是重要的一步。因為單靠學校網上的漂亮圖片、精美的宣傳品和學校排名,很難看清一間學校的全貌。

那麼有什麼要注意?首先,要花點時間做功課,了解學校的基本資料,最好可以先參考學校官方網站和最新的ISI報告。做一個主動、懂得適時發問的家長,總比被動好。 

接著是預備好實地參觀的提問。長途跋涉到英國參觀學校,最好抱著求知的態度,準備好發掘學校的另一面貌,皆因魔鬼就在細節。例如學生的校服整不整齊?洗手間和宿舍的浴室是否乾淨企理?校園裡的公告欄貼出的活動照片是否多元?學生們轉堂時在走廊上的氣氛如何?都在談論什麼?

另外你亦可留意師生的互動,和學生是否有歸屬感。比方說,校園裡有沒有展示學生的作品?師生間的互動如何?會否互相叫對方的名字? 

盡量不要花太多時間參觀學校大量斥資建立的設施。這些設備對學生發展雖然重要,但不能真正反映學校的教育理念、校風或是學生的個性。記得不要只跟著導遊指定的路線走,反而請他們帶你去一些自己真正想了解的地方。一場來到,何妨在教室外看看學生的上課情況,或是他們在sports hall放鬆時的表現? 

根據過往經驗,我實在見過太多家長參觀學校之後才後悔沒有多向老師或校長發問。所以,事先準備好問題便萬無一失。尤其學校高層說話難免帶點商業味道。最好便是有兩手準備,來一個出奇不意的發問,看看他們怎樣回答。 

最後,建議大家參觀後可跟孩子一起整理出學校的優點和缺點,如果還有問題亦可發電郵詢問學校。當然,我本人也非常樂意解答你的問題。

#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.
