【信報:英名校大比拼】牛津郡兩校之爭
留學英國想享受多采多姿的校園生活,很多人會以為非要選遠離城市的鄉郊學校不可,其實也未必,Radley College 與 Abingdon School 這兩間英國一等一的公立學校,距離牛津市都只需15分鐘,卻一樣擁有綠草如茵的校園設施,盡享城市學校與鄉郊學校的優勢。
 
這兩間首屈一指的公學,寄宿生比例和文化卻大相徑庭,Radley百分百的學生都寄宿,是徹徹底底的傳統寄宿學校,可與伊頓與哈羅齊名,反觀Abingdon,雖然校內有3間宿舍,但寄宿比率只有一成,其餘都是日校生,學校亦是一週上5日課。難怪牛津郡的家長,如要揀一間正統寄宿學校,首選始終是Radley。
 
Radley提供的主要是多元化的傳統科目如藝術、音樂、物理、生物、歷史、設計與科技、神學等,但也有新穎學科如中國政治,能夠切合時代需要。其成功之道在於每個學生均獲得個人學術支援及實用升學建議,尤其有利想考入牛津劍橋等名校的學生。有逾750年歷史的Abingdon,它的優勢卻是校方提供涵蓋面廣泛的課程,而且編排具高度自由,令大部分學生可以同時應付達10科GCSE,學生也偏向同時選修文科和理科,成就文理雙全的人才。
 
論公開試的表現,Radley在2016的A Level 中學生取得A*-A 的有72.4%, 同年Abingdon則稍為遜色,學生有同等級別的只有56.5%,而2016的IGCSE, Radley有84.54%學生得A*-A 級別,Abingdon卻有87.5%,微微超前一個會合。
 
未來領袖搖籃
話雖如此,要比較這樣的學校,只看公開試的成績並不公平,還應看學生進入牛津、劍橋大學的比例,Radley每年平均有15至17位畢業生進入牛劍,而Abingdon亦有13至14位,旗鼓相當。兩間學校的競爭更延伸至運動方面,校際比賽中他們在不同體育項目常是互相的宿敵,兩校每年在牛津河划艇比賽的龍爭虎鬥,更可媲美牛津與劍橋划艇隊每年一較高下的盛況。
 
不爭的是,Radley與Abingdon都是培育未來領袖的一流學校,值得報讀。不過相對而言,香港學生考入Radley難度較高,學校多年被詬病白人學生當道,收海外生的比率低,而且現在收生已去到2020年。反而報考Abingdon則只需一年前申請,香港同學想獲取錄相對也較為容易。
