【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】做好準備部署留學

經濟負擔得來,計算過有能力送子女到英國入讀寄宿學校之後,首要解決問題是何時起行,如何部署選合適的學校。

從不少留學英國寄宿學校個案反映,最合適年齡是十三歲,一來子女已掌握了聽、寫、讀、講的中文能力,將來回港或內地發展絕不因語文問題而有障礙;二來十三歲之齡應具備照顧自己心理與生理的能力。換句話說,要作留學部署,子女十一歲前就要開始部署。在大約是讀完小五後,家長開始向子女說明到海外入讀寄宿學校的概況,另方面培養他們閱讀的習慣和興趣;此外要從英國各個排名榜中選擇學校,再搜查相關學校網頁,查察學校的辦學理念、背景、規模、設備、關顧狀況等,選定兩三所學校後,再找升學中心或代理代辦,又或親自上網登記,然後要求學校安排探訪,一般學校歡迎學生及家長親自前來探訪,校長多會接見及面談;之後學校會安排日子讓已登記學生參加開放日及評估測試,評估達標才正式讓學生報名,填報名表,進入申請程序,這時才須交報名費。報名後,學校會安排入學試,委託英國文化協會或考評局甚至一些升學中心或香港原校校長代為安排入學試,毋須再到英國。

不熟悉英國寄宿學校情況,也沒時間到英國探訪學校,透過升學代理代辦也可以,但家長們應向代理闡明要求學校的類型及成績,並最好提供三幾所學校讓他們評估是否合適;部份較大型的升學代理甚至早已獲得部份英國寄宿學校委託進行評估測試程序,升學代理有權評估登記學生的測試(Assessment),才讓學生正式申請報讀,有信譽的升學代理當然以公平、公正處理,但亦有代理因有利益之嫌令家長失望,所以透過代理申請,應先跟代理面談,才決定是否委託代理向學校登記及申請,不嫌麻煩可找兩三所代理比較會穩妥。

筆者認為,送子女到英國寄宿學校,應盡量帶同子女到兩至三所學校探訪,讓他們有個印象,然後一齊討論和選擇,用二百萬元送子女到英國寄宿學校四至五年,花點時間和精神也是值得。
