【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】把握機會考入英國寄宿名校

上周末出席「Oh!爸媽」的留學英國升學講座,章某的講座主題為把握最後機會考入英國寄宿名校。有問,英國寄宿名校不是要兩年前開始登記和申請,現時才申請還有機會不成。

理由有二,一是泰半名校皆有少量學額作緩衝,遇到獨特的申請人譬如成績特別優異,並在某個學科有突出表現,又或具備音樂、體育、藝術、科技等天份,校方會把握在最後階段取錄並予以獎學金。二是學校在十二月至一月間向所有適合的申請人發出取錄信後,未必人人接受,其中必有放棄,遲來卻突出的申請或跟候補名單一併考慮,當然超強的申請人更勝候補名單。

近年有不少個案能在開學前半年才申請,又能考入諸如Tonbridge、Charterhouse、Badminton、StMary、Cale等名校。

英國名校定義跟香港有不同,眾所周知,Eton是名校,也是皇室成員子女入讀的學校,只是跟Eton同樣格局的StoweSchool卻是少人知曉,論公開試成績的確有多少差距,但論校園、教學資源和設備實有過之而無不及,這所位於Buckingham的英式傳统學校所提供的學習及活動空間,不比香港家長信奉的名校差。Eton是名校但Stowe何嘗不是。Stowe例子只是冰山一角,滄海遺珠學校少說還有二、三十所,譬如Rendcomb、AbbotsBromley、WellsCathedrals、King’sCollegeTaunton,甚至是Norwich、DowneHouse、Oakham也得是名校吧!說穿了最後機會覓名校,應是選擇適合個別學生發展以及學習的,而非跟坊間一同追捧的名校吧!

講座完畢前,有問章某心目中的英國寄宿學校名單,因篇幅有限,煩請到fbFanpage《章文彬升學零距離》搜查,重申章某名校名單的核心元素乃學校的學習空間和啟發,而非單一成績。
