【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】民風淳樸的約克

負笈英國升讀寄宿學校,選擇元素不外乎是學校成績好、校園偌大、校風淳樸、交通便捷;倫敦周邊地方,譬如在東南面的臨海區多是校園偌大、風景怡人、建築形格猶如電影《哈利波特》般的典型歌德式學校自較吸引;不過,遠離倫敦,在英倫北面的約克(York)則具備一些鄉村式英國學校,整體予以淳樸、關係親切,雖未必交通便捷,卻又有另一番光景,視乎個別家長及學生需求和選擇。

約克(York)有不少好學校,如Queen Margaret's、St.Peter's School、Mount School、Queen Ethelburga's College,及另有Harrogate Ladies' College等等。其中Queen Margaret's School應是香港學生及家長較為忽略;查此校乃實而不華的女校,學校規模不大,學生少於400名,寄宿生佔近90%,算是全寄宿學校。

Queen Margaret's校長Paul Silverwood年輕,2009年到任,現時只是四十歲不到,是核子化學博士;學長們對校長的觀感不俗,認為他對全人教育的層次管理得很好,而且學術方面發展方向亦比之前廣闊,讓學生對世情更了解;而學生亦對學校的變革具正面的評價和印象。

成績方面,A-Level能考得A*-A成績達55%;GCSE則有60%能考得A*-A。A-Level選擇學科夠多,美術,藝術,甚至是舞台、紡織及時裝設計的學科也俱備,加上來有7-8科是涉及美術和藝術,以這樣規模的學校很少能及。最強勁的學科為數學及伸延數學,尤以後者摘A*率為75%,其餘經濟、商學、政府及政治學皆有不錯的摘A*率達30%上下。每年約有5-10%學生能考入劍橋、牛津,是典型英國女校,既有尖子,也有在其他方面發展不錯的學生;香港學生約有20名,算不多。

學校每年招收11至13歲及16歲學生,分別入讀Year 7至9,以及中六課程。Year 7至9言明入學評審或考試學生毋須準備,學生只考英、數,以及面試作為入學評審準則;中六則另安排考入學試及網上面試。

學費方面,一學年學費為28,000英鎊,已包括膳宿。

總的來說,Queen Margaret's成績跟沿海Brighton的Roedean School相若,但沒有Roedean School般的海岸豪景及偌大校園,感覺或較踏實及樸素,且學校細,對學生關顧貼身,學生與學生、學生與師生關係親切。

另訊,英國Bellerbys College的入學部主管Stephen Carter將出席八月九日(星期六)上午十一時的升學講座,歡迎家長及學生帶備成績出席,可即時獲接見及評核入學機會,適合有意負笈英國升讀A-level、GCSE、基礎班(商學、工和、法學、理學及藥劑,設計等)的中四、五、六學生。座位有限,費用全免,留位可致電31840152或61075222。
