【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】七招申請英國名校

讀友傳來一本為《七招考入英國頂尖學校》小冊子,好奇翻來看看,內容算不錯;其實筆者也有七招申請頂尖學校的備忘!

第一招:申請英國學校之前,務必在兩年半前搜集資料,有了目標學校,就算不能親到學校視察,也應多在互聯網多角度窺視學校環境以及周邊城鎮面貌,如今GoogleMap一目了然,更建議趁暑假先參加英國當地遊學團,以便讓孩子留下印象。

第二招:傳統上,英國頂尖學校以男或女校較馳名,但時移世易,從上世紀八十年代開始,男或女校開始轉型成為男女校,不過如WycombeAbbey、Eton、Winchester等,仍然堅持單一性別學校,頂尖男女校則有Oundle、Rugby,以及皇妃凱特(KateMiddleton)肆業的Marlborough。故此毋須拘泥頂尖學校一定男或女校,男女校也無不可。

第三招:選定學校後,是直接申請抑或找升學中介代辦?假如是真頂尖學校,或只有一至兩所中介代理與學校有合約,要視乎家長在沒選擇下是否願意接受中介的服務,建議家長應親自向學校申請,盡量跟學校溝通,可了解更多,倘應付不來,才找升學中介代辦也不遲,但宜將所選的學校意願說明,以免被中介影響,預先做工夫,就不難知道升學中介的虛實。

第四招:關於入學考試,愈是低年級,入學考試門檻也愈低;假如要考Year7至8,也許可只考英、數兩科便是;Year9或以上年級的入學試要求較高,部份頂尖學校也許會邀請學生親到學校考試及面試,甚至要求考生寄宿一晚,作為互相了解及視察。只要抱平常心,毋須有太多掩飾,以平日的行為舉止而處之,學校會定必分得出優劣。

第五招:申請獎學金說易不易,說難不難,凡在學術、音樂、運動其中一項有超卓表現,學校或主動提供獎學金,只是學校不提出,家長也可提出,千萬別太謙虛,實事求是為佳。

第六招:英倫頂尖學校學費宿費動輒要四十萬港元,經濟較吃緊,可以嘗試蘇格蘭的頂尖學校,平均會比英倫平兩成。

第七招:倘獲頂尖學校取錄,應立即付留位費,但注意,交留位費之前,先要考慮清楚,也要讓孩子知道將升學此校,假如仍有疑慮,可向校方提出延遲留位寬限期,一般會有最多一至兩星期的寬限。

#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.
