【頭條日報】中四留英十月未晚

香港中學變成六年制之後,令想去英國升學的中四學生處於尷尬位置:跳讀中六挑戰A Level好像操之太急,由頭讀GCSE又等同冧班,因此就促成了一些一年制的GCSE班的出現。



一年內完成課程可應考GCSE,聽上去無疑吸引。之不過這類課程却有違英國教育由闊入窄的原意: 英國人要求學生GCSE讀十科,A Level讀四科,大學讀一科。換言之,中四中五同學會廣泛接觸不同科目如拉丁文、藝術、歷史、文學,擴闊視野兼打好學術修養根基,繼而尋找自己興趣來深入鑽研。一年制的GCSE課程,學生只需讀五至六科,學制本來要讓他們開眼界長見識的美意,便被辜負了。



去英國,自然也想藉著與同學互動來接觸英國文化,一年制的GCSE班却未必可達成此目的。英國本土學生讀一年制GCSE班的少之又少,英國脫歐之後,就連歐洲學生也買少見少,有香港同學跟我反映班上全是中國面孔,被迫放棄結交外國同學認識外國文化的初衷。



當然,我也很明白,制度之間的不銜接,再加上籌劃不足,家長有見仔女中四已經開學,來年送他們讀一年的GCSE中五班,似乎是唯一選擇。然而我始終較鼓勵中四同學及早去英國由中四讀起,即使現在已經開學,但其實十月辨入學為時未晚,一月的新學期也是另一大好時機。當然,時間倉促不容蹉跎,所以家長同學如有任何有關疑問,十萬火急我都會樂意協助。

#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.
