【信報:寄宿學校攻略】選校捨北取南
香港家長為想子女入好學校而孟母三遷的故事,屢聞不鮮。九成家長都會花時間分析各校網 ,為子女籌謀報讀攻略。可是這種以地區揀學校的做法,香港家長很少會應用到子女英國升學上 ,可能跟對英國地區不熟悉有關 。 其實英國人也會以地區作揀學校的指標,且近年大都抱着捨北取南的宗旨。南部由於天氣較好較暖 ,更重要的是, 南英相對富庶, 資源較佳,教育質素更有保障。相比下,北部經濟環境欠佳,尤其是 「 憨豆先生 」 Rowan Atkinson 在北部的母校 St Bees School 停辦的消息一出,很多父母便為避開北方的決定額手稱慶,也證明 「 以地區揀學校 」 在英國確是非常可靠的 。 
 
英國名校區
南部頭號最受英國人歡迎的,是位於東南面,特別是俗稱 Commuters towns 的城鎮如 Epsom 和 Reading。它們毗鄰倫敦,居裏民每天可以往返倫敦上班,因而得名。論中學,這地區有大批名校如 Epsom College、City of London Freemen 's School Sevenoaks School 和 The Royal School Haslemere 等可供選擇。
 
全英另一名校區,則是位於英國西南部,此區是兩大國家公園所在。 區內有 Cheltenham 和 Oxford 兩城,Oxford 的盛名不必多贅,Cheltenham 則有點像我們的跑馬地,其馬場聞名遐邇,每年的 Cheltenham Festival 舉國矚目 。 對於同學和家長 , 該區的牛津大學 、巴斯大學及艾希特大學這三個大名已經如雷貫耳。中學名單也同樣響噹噹:傳統現代兼備的 Wycliffe College、早前得電視節目 《 嘩鬼上學去之農夫篇 》 實地取景 Mount Kelly 、 以及對學生學術與品格都要求嚴格的 Plymouth College。 三間名校各具特色卻同樣出色 ,提供優質教育並能切合不同學生的需要 。 
 
曾有人半開玩笑跟我説 :以地域區分國家,豈不容易助長地區主義 ? 小弟也就半開玩笑回答 :如果有好處的話又何妨呢 ? 像剛剛提到在 Bath 地區的三大名中學 :Wycliffe College 、Mount Kelly 和 Plymouth College,近日便組成一個西部學校聯盟,還會本月來港在英國文化協會升學展中舉行聯合招生,讓本地同學可以一次過報讀這三大炙手可熱的名校 ,如此難得機會,地區與否,都值得家長同學好好把握才是!
