【Oh!爸媽】UKiset真的非考不可?

不少家長都會疑惑:Samuel你常常提及的UKiset考試,是否非考不可?不考的話孩子會否比人輸蝕?其實考UKiset與否,十分視乎你心儀學校的個別做法。如你的心水學校不太著重UKiset成績,老實說你可以節省一筆考試費。但事實上英國大部分頂尖學校均重視UKiset成績。若你想考入Oundle、Epsom、King’s Canterbury 和Wellington等名校,UKiset成績就必不可少。

Oundle School

今次跟大家分享的第一間學校甚受家長歡迎,waiting list長期排得滿滿。原因在於學校的學術成績突出之餘,全人發展方面亦非常出色,多姿多彩的校園生活成就了一個個獨立,且散發自信光芒的學生。即使每天的活動一個接一個,仍然應付自如。

Oundle School在眾多寄宿學校中門檻較高,是一間收生要求極高的學校,年級愈高,成績要求就愈嚴謹。今年年近九成Oundle學生GCSE成績達A*-A ,另外亦有六成學生A-Level 成績達A*-A,表現優秀。Oundle School極為重視全人發展,認為課堂或是課外活動相輔相成,希望能透過高彈性的課堂培養學生身、心、靈的發展。要融入Oundle的校園生活,學生在時間管理需要處理得當,因此學校收生要求高亦不無道理。

課外活動方面,學校一共有五十多個學會,由天文學會到關心社會狀況的國際特赦組織,再由欖球到Croquet,學生可根據喜好發展自己的興趣。一些學會如電影及法律等等更會邀請行內人擔任活動嘉賓。

雖然Oundle鼓勵學生多參與各種課外活動,但學校校風嚴謹,學生必須嚴格遵守學校和舍堂的規則。若果學生行為太反叛,校方會送他們回家,要求他們好好自我反省。不過大部分Oundle學生都是動靜皆宜,活躍於各種活動之餘,亦懂得遵守學校規矩。校方間中會容許十八歲或以上的學生外出,到市內的酒吧淺酌一下。

The Leys School

除文章開首提過的幾間名校,一些門檻相對較低的學校亦重視UKiset成績,例如位於Cambridge的The Leys School(見主圖)。這間毗鄰劍橋大學的寄宿男女學校雖然只有約六百名學生,但麻雀雖小五臟俱全。學校以小班教學著稱,學生和教師之間關係融洽,造就友善、輕鬆的學習環境。學生公開試成績表現不俗,2016年有七成半學生A Level成績達A*-B, 另外九成學生GCSE達A*-B。

Leys的設施非常完善,為學生提供話劇和舞蹈的練習室。學校更設有劇院,讓學生能盡情發揮演藝細胞。

UKiset認受性高,學生可用一次考試的價錢申請多間英國私校,對於一次過報考三四間學校以上的學生還是比較便捷和省錢。至於是否非考UKiset不可,還是要跟顧問了解心儀學校是否視UKiset成績為入學篩選條件才作決定,以免浪費了240鎊考試費。

#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.
