迷你教室
時常有家長來找我傾談升學的事,經常都會有種「學校越大越好」的先入為主。校舍大某程度上確實能反映學校的能力和地位,但是大家時常忽略的小學校其實像藏寶圖一樣,有一些意想不到的好處。最近讀了一篇關於小型寄宿校的文章,和大家分享一下。
 
英國有名為Small Boarding School Association的組織,成員是學生人數二百人或以下的學校。針無兩頭利,小校有一些元素是大校沒有的,如果你正正需要以下元素,小校就最適合不過。
 
1.小班教學
小班教學的好處很多,老師更清楚每一位學生的長處短處,性格等等。除了能更tailor-made對每位學生的教育外,亦能協助他們於班上與同學之間有更深入的了解,培養更深厚的友誼。而別於一般三,四十人的班別,小班教室最多可能只得二十人左右。這種小班能更確保每位學生的學習進度統一,追不上課程的情況能大大減少。
 
2.個人化學習
除了班房內的學習,班房外都能顯示出小學校的好處。學生能夠在下課後更容易找到老師來問問題,有助課後自我學習的進度。老師們亦能在下課後與學生有更深入的互動,例如給予學生一些心理輔導,職業導向的意見等,除了老師,亦兼了家長和社工的角色。反之,在大學校的話,老師們都未必有閒暇和學生作個別學習。
 
3.更多機會
Small Boarding Schools校園雖小,但活動卻和大校一樣做到足。我常說孩子去到英國,應該多點開放自己,參加一些香港沒有的活動。但如果學生去到大學校的話,未必每個人都能夠成為學會或團隊活動中的領袖,如果學生沒有主動爭取的話,甚至作為成員的身份發揮的機會也未別太多。小型學校的好處就在於競爭較少,機會較多,學生們能夠自由參與活動並提升領導能力,效果比起在大學校學習更佳。
 
4.小社區
在小學校生活,師生之間,同學之間的bond會更強,形成一個互助互愛的小社區,比起視學校為一個讀書的地方更多了一重意義。在小學校裡,同學老師職員們甚至能記得每位學生同事的名字,在人數龐大的大型學校就難以做到了。
 
無論大校小校,讀得好就是好校。校園大小和學生小宇宙的大小沒有正比,只要是栽種在適合的環境,就算再小型的校舍都阻止不了學生的小宇宙大爆發。

#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.
