【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】脫歐.升學.知多啲

上月英國脫歐,全球為之緊張,當中當然不少得一眾想送子女赴英升學的家長。「脫歐對英國升學有甚麼影響?」這問題確實難答,因為才脫了一個多月,對英國獨立學校的長期、短期影響仍未浮面,是未知之數。在我們都拭目以待英國在未來日子可能推出的教育制度新法例或改革的同時,可以肯定的,是私校的管理層們已經開始思索如何應對脫歐後的英國教育形勢。

英國一些較大規模的寄宿學校會跟據學生國籍而制定收生限額,因此,脫歐會對留英升學的歐盟成員國學生做成阻滯,例如簽名問題。而如果歐盟成員國的學生改排「另一條隊」,以國際學生身份報英國學校令申請人數激增,則會間接影響香港學生申請考入英國學校的機會,尤其是入學條件較高,較selective的名校。當然,現在擔心還是言之尚早,因不少學校已經在計劃有關脫歐的配套政策,以及亞洲區的收生安排,相信在脫歐影響浮現之時會有適當應對。

忽發奇想:脫歐之後,英國A-Level的成績在德國有何用途?現在的德國家長可能正正為此問題而煩惱,而這也隨時是其他歐盟成員國家長的煩惱。遠在亞洲的我們未必即時感受到他們的所思所想,但換個角度說,這種擔憂隨時能夠對英國私校界造成重大打擊。

先撇開英國脫歐對大圍經濟環境的影響,英磅匯率下調或多或少都是香港家長要注意的事。英磅跌是否等於升讀英國學校相對便宜呢?根據過往經驗,一般而言,私立學校學費波動不大,英磅跌確實會令學費相對降低。不過,送子女到外國讀書始終不是一時三刻的決定,家長不宜因為「較便宜」而決定讓子女赴英升學。在這一前提下,報讀短期大學基礎班(foundation course)和語文課程則最會因英磅下挫而受惠。

直至現在,英國脫歐的漣漪效應仍未震盪到香港,我強烈建議家長們先「按兵不動」,在聽取專家意見之前切忌輕舉妄動。尤其在教育這種對孩子未來舉足輕重的範疇,家長適應盡量獲得學校資訊,盡早報讀學校,而非因為價錢相宜就作出魯莽的抉擇。

#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.
