【頭條日報:預備班出路】條條大路通羅馬

上星期講過,部份香港家長有非常根深柢固的一條龍升學概念,例如送子女往海外升學,他們會堅持:「想佢將來入A大學,梗要佢讀A大學的基礎課程。」不過這概念已經被如EFEducationFirst提供的世界大學基礎課程所顛覆。

同一道理,不少家長都明白如果一心想子女升英國大學,以ALevel成績透過UCAS機制入大學這條才是正路。尤其若對升學的學府或科目有要求,不難察覺英國最頂尖大學不會考慮各類基礎課程畢業生,而一些競爭激烈的科目如醫科或法律系,基礎課程的學生亦會被拒諸門外。換言之,很多家長理解到入大學ALevel始終是王道,然而當為子女挑選ALevel課程時,他們卻以為主流學校提供的兩年ALevel課程是仔仔女女的唯一選擇。

其實原來識得揀,ALevel課程也有許多選擇畀你揀。

主流學校的兩年制ALevel課程,最大缺點之一,就是缺乏彈性。事實上,現在已經有一些學院如BellerbysCollege,有提供一些非常具彈性的ALevel課程,主攻讓同學在主流學校兩年制的ALevel課程以外,仍然可透過UCAS機制入大學。若不打算繼續留學,亦可選擇回港以non-jupas報考本地大學。

這一類彈性ALevel課程,家長和同學不但可以根據自己經濟能力及課程內容作抉擇,同時課程有長有短,每年開學時間亦不同,可以切合學生的個別需要。就以BellerbysCollege為例,此校的彈性ALevel課程,長度由三至六個學期不等,目標終歸是協助學生達到報考英國頂尖大學的成績。其五學期的課程,可選擇在每年一月或四月入學,前者有得放暑假而後者無,兩批同學翌年的九月即可入讀大學。

不得不提,BellerbysCollege這五學期課程的大學取錄成功率特別出色,更有畢業同學仔入到英國名牌大學的醫學院,證明實力不容小覷。現正值課程四月份入讀的報名季節,有興趣的家長和同學,要把握時機。想知更多可致電香港代表專線91523196。

#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.
