【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】中上成績的英寄宿學校

今個月將介紹幾所每學年學費及膳宿共三萬英鎊不到的英國寄宿學校,部份在GCSEA*-A的排名榜在前列三百位上下,雖成績未達一級,各方面卻有平均以上水平的成績或設備;入學申請也較有彈性,適合成績平均而非突出的香港初中生入讀Year 9。

今回先介紹一所中型學校Queen College,Taunton,學校歷史超過一百七十年,具備發掘學生潛能的學習平台。校長ChristopherJ.Alcock○一年開始出任校長,他一九八一年在Durham大學畢業,主修地理及人類學,取得教育文憑後任教於Stamford,同時也是寄宿舍監;之後在King Edward's School,Witley任職副校長,有豐富關顧學生經驗。之後加入Queen College,帶領學校十二年,成功建立教與學的平台,讓學生發揮所長,取得高水平的成績,以及具質素的活動成績;同時致力提升學校資訊科技設備,與時並進,遵照Queen College,Taunton格言︰We learn not for school but for life.(我們學習的非學校,而是生活。)

Queen College,Taunton成績非頂級,卻算中上,今年GCSEA*-A的達一半,排名二百五十位上下;另在A-Level取得A*-A的超過四成,全英私校排名二百二十位上下,每年有五、六位畢業生能考入牛津、劍橋。

在學術及公開考試以外,學校提供非常規的第二語言及資訊科技課程,並提倡全人教育PSHME,以個人(P)、社交(S)、健康(H)、道德教育(ME),作為培育學生成長的進程,正好符合學校堅持的教育宗旨。

關顧方面,學校在家長社群取得很好的口碑,學校以「你希望人家怎樣對待你,你就怎樣對待人」的理念,讓學生學懂怎樣尊重別人,師生及學生相互關係相當融洽,是學校關顧制度下理想的前設。

學校分成七個社,走讀生佔四個社,寄宿生共有三個社,每社皆有監督和導師與學生解決學業及生活上的問題。社像個家庭,監督及導師們是校內的父母,導師與學生的比例大約是一比十二。

活動方面,學校提供的設施及項目皆足夠,包括文化、藝術、學術、體育以至戶外生活及社區服務的獎勵活動類別,諸如野外搜索、騎術、板球等較門的亦有提供,學生可按興趣及能力參與。

學費方面,由Year 9-13,每學期學費包括膳宿是九千六百五十英鎊,一年三個學期約二萬九千英鎊,在全英私校中已算可以了。

總論Queen College,Taunton成績雖不十分突出,辦學理念可讓香港學生發揮所長;設施與教學配合,校風不俗;成績中至中上的香港學生理應適合。
