【SCMP Education Post:寄宿學校攻略】換了地方,同樣努力-傳統名校Charterhouse

家長們送子女出國讀書,除了想孩子在外國接受更好的教育,另一原因也希望外國讀書生活不會像香港一樣「chur」,讓孩子多一點空間抖抖氣,享受生活。然而,英國有些名校,其實也崇尚忙碌的學習生活,讀書考試不一定比香港「他條」。不是嚇大家,而是總結這三年來的經驗,有些英識同學們也有告訴我「原來英國讀書也不是一味『hea』的。」而當中的表表者,要說到Charterhouse。

 

作為傳統名校的Charterhouse,是香港家長趨之若鶩想孩子考入的名校。然而,相比起其他英國學校,Charterhouse算是非常academic。連學生自己都話:「對於不太academic的學生來說,入Charterhouse可以話是一種浪費。」

 

講到咁勁,實際上有幾勁?Charterhouse是少數名校之中同時提供IGCSEs、Pre-U和IB的。而每個範疇成績都十分傑出:被視為難度較一般GCSE高的ICSE,2016年A*-A都有76%;Cambridge Pre-U Distinction有58%;IB Diploma Programme也有80%同學取得6/7分的高分數。能夠在非主流的考試方式中取得如此卓越的成績,Charterhouse的實力確實非同小可。



除了注重學術成績,Charterhouse也重視培育學生全人,從其運動和課外活動的全面性可見一斑。與傳統寄宿名校不同,Charterhouse並非典型的「Rugby School」,也重視足球發展,且給予同學大量選擇,讓他們可以在學術以外發展個人所長,對個人成長有著相輔相乘的作用。

 

Charterhouse「同樣努力」的地方,還有藝術、音樂方面。校方規定,同學們在每個學期均需參與最少三項「cultural events」。當中不少同學都會選擇音樂和演藝,並在舍際比賽中和其他同學互相切磋,爭取獎項。

 

當然,話雖要同樣要努力才有成就,但Charterhouse的教學不會令學生如在香港讀書一般的高壓。難怪即使仍然是讀得辛苦,也有一大班英識教育家長成為其支持者。
