【Oh!爸媽】學習就是一場歷險-高瞻遠矚的Ashford School

作為升學顧問,最常聽到的問題之一就是:「為何非英國不可?」

 

英國學校跟與香港最不同的地方,相信是學校的視野。多數香港學校只著眼於學生的分數和言行舉止。相反,英國學校講求前瞻性。他們非常重視學生的未來路向,務求讓學生追求成績之餘亦發展個人潛能,畢業後與未來時代接軌。眾多高瞻遠矚的英國學校中,Ashford School可謂數一數二。

Ashford School成立於1898年,位於英國東南部Kent的市中心。學生只需步行約十分鐘便到達High Street,非常便捷。Ashford校園設施齊備,擁有四間宿舍、遼闊的人工草皮球場、室內游泳池和國際學習中心等等。Ashford的辦學宗旨是讓學生在學習路上作主導,並且鼓起勇氣走出comfort zone。

校長Mike Buchanan為今屆HMC主席,非常鼓勵學生走出comfort zone,特別提倡adventurous learning,希望學生能在個人或學術成績方面也能不斷追求突破。每人對comfort zone的定義都不一樣,可以是在全班同學面前演講,或是嘗試騎馬。為鼓勵學生勇敢踏出comfort zone,校長帶頭學習新樂器euohonium(上低音號),亦為每位Ashford老師提供資源學習新樂器。此舉亦令學校在2015年獲頒發Strategic Education Initiative of the Year。

Ashford的課外活動多元化,不少也是比較創新有趣的活動,由近期流行的Lego機械人到烹飪、辯論等,每個學生都可找到感興趣的活動。不得不提,Ashford的辯論隊水平非常高,曾經代表學校參加Oxford和Cambridge Union比賽,另外亦曾出戰European Youth Parliament。學校的人道組織(Amnesty Group)最近亦曾贏得慈善籌款獎項。

學術成績方面,Ashford收生不算嚴謹,公開考試成績亦不俗,去年A Level有超過七成學生考獲A*-B。Ashford每年約有兩成學生考入全球頭十位大學。學校上課學校時間表安排極具彈性,即使只有數名學生選讀一個科目仍會配合他們的意願開班,大大增加學生的學習動力。

在校長Mike Buchanan帶領下,Ashford School秉承創校宗旨,鼓勵學生將學習視作一場無間斷的歷險,不斷挑戰自己的comfort zone,不讓自己停下腳步。Ashford School是一個好例子,說明英國教育的高瞻遠矚,對學生的未來發展有莫大幫助。

#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.
