【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】400年寄宿名校Charterhouse School

 英國Charterhouse School(見圖)位於Surrey的Godalming外圍,在倫敦西南面大約40公里,車程不需一小時。此校屬於老牌英式男校,但由70年代開始,中六取錄女生,每年約有50名女生入讀中六;反而取錄從外面投考入的中六男生只有15名,令中六的男女比例較為平衡。

Charterhouse School成立超過400年,在1611年由商人Thomas Sutton創立,校址原坐落中世紀的修道院;在1868年公學法案中被定義為英倫九所公學之一,所以畢業生被稱為修士。1872年搬到現址,現時學校佔地200畝,比初搬來只佔地68畝多出兩倍。近30年,校園大興土木,興建了不少新設備,譬如藝術廊;以JohnDerry命名的科技中心,John Derry為機師,在二次大戰後駕駛飛機在高空下垂飛行,被證實快過音速,故譽為超音速,他在Charterhouse畢業,所以科技中心以他命名;另有BenTravers劇院、RVWilliams音樂中心、Halford Hewitt高爾夫球場、女皇體育中心、田徑場、現代語言中心等等,都是近年學校的建設。

現任校長Richard Pleming在今年一月才到任,是牛津的學者,曾在Eton任教英文,普遍認為校長能帶領學校踏上另一個新境界。

CharterhouseSchool是傳統的full boarding學校,全校幾乎全是寄宿生,只有約5%是走讀生;全校現有800名學生。

成績方面,中六考Cambridge Pre-U,考獲優良成績的佔93%,大約相等於A-Level的A*-B。另有考IB,超過50%學生能考獲38分或以上,以牛津及劍橋的分數線38分為標準;換句話說,50%或以上學生能有機會入牛津或劍橋。GCSE方面,考獲A*-A達82%,應是全英前列50位之內的排名。每年約有20名學生能考入牛津、劍橋,其餘大多能考入前列大學,以主修數、理、工程作為大學課程重心最多。去年也有考入美國長春藤大學的個案,如哈佛、耶魯等等。

Year9入學共招125名學生,中六入學招15名男生,50名女生,只此而已。據說,中六招香港的男生是1-2名。該校要求海外生宜先考UKiset,之後才申請及登記。

Charterhouse代表將於10月1日來港面見學生,《頭條日報》讀友可優先WhatsApp61075222預約,費用全免。另一名校OundleSchool則於10月2日在港辦講座,留座亦可WhatsApp61075222或致電28762885查詢。

#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.
