【信報】 英國轉校的不可不知

「Samuel, 讀左個學期,我仔/女想話要一定轉校!」


聖誕季節,收到最多家長的求助,就是想幫子女轉校。無它嘅,不少首次赴英的同學仔剛讀完第一個學期,基於各種原因覺得不適合,想趁假期時轉校,但始終適應需時,而且家長愛子心切,心感無助,有不安是正常的。


大部分英國學校亦有明文規定退學要一個學期前通知,學生九月才上學,現在才讀了一個學期,怎可能有時間預早通知?為了這one term notice,同學仔是否要等多一個學期呢?



給大家一個重要貼士:規矩是死的,英國學校更重視學生well being,如學生有足夠離校原因,校長們大都是通情達理的人,在這種情況下,校方亦明白在開學前作離校通知根本不可能。是以遇到這不得已的情況,家長只要坦白地跟校長商量,學校很大機會是會酎情處理,允許同學仔在聖誕假期後退學轉校的。


不過我也有責任提醒大家一下,英國的轉校程序未必很難,但要留心的是,校不能常轉,皆因將來報大學時如被發現有纍纍轉校史,終究不是一件好事。是以家長和同學仔考慮轉校時,必定要清楚自己想要的東西,並有充分把握新學校可以符合到你的要求,才好落實走這一著,始終同一問題不一定轉後後必有解決。


此外,同學仔的年級,也直接影響轉校時的考量。子女如就讀九年級或以下,當然比較富彈性,隨時轉校問題也不大。到了十年級,由於馬上要應考公開試,轉校的決定就不能掉以輕心。原校讀了一個學期的學科,在新學校是否接到軌?英國有很多不同的考評局,新舊學校的考評局是否相同?總之不能因為新學校十年級有位肯收你,便毅然去馬。至於十一級的同學,基本上過了第一個學期要轉校機會已很微,一動不如一靜。十二級的同學仔就跟十級一樣正值公開試年份,要轉校就要肯定新舊學校可以交接,以保證公開試可以順利過渡為最重要考慮。


轉校到底是大抉擇,不宜輕舉妄動,有疑問時不妨找升學專家給予意見斟酎下,以免有後顧之憂。下星期,我會繼續講關於在英國轉校要注意的事項。
