【信報:寄宿學校攻略】ISC為私校闢謠
想到英國升學,坊間關於英國寄宿學校及私立學校可參考的資料不勝枚舉,不過要論權威性,就不得不提ISC這個大名。ISC全名為Independent Schools Council,他們每年都會就英國的私立學校進行大型調查,並發表極為詳盡的報道,對於有意負笈英國的人士,是相當具參考價值的資訊。
 
以即將過去的2016年為例,ISC便在年頭深入調查了一千二百多間英國私立學校。在這英國面臨巨變的一年,坊間亦曾有流言指英國私立學校同樣面對前所未見的危機,不少學校有倒閉關門大吉之虞。然而ISC的調查卻發現,英國私立學校的學生人數卻是自1974有紀錄以來的新高,而且種種數據都顯示,英國私立學校的發展非常穩健強勁,流言蜚語原來根本毫無根據。
 
ISC發現,英國私立學校發展蓬勃,可以體現在其學生的優異公開試成績之上。2015年ISC屬下的私立學校,學生在GCSE的平均成績是兩個A*及七個A。此外,私立學校在A level考試中有過半數獲A*或A的等級,若以全英國所有學校合計,僅得四分一有如此佳績。假如按每個科目得分計算,在英國排名頭100位的學校內,84間是ISC私立學校。
 
當然,殼實成績並不是私立學校成功的唯一指標。調查還發現,私立學校學生普遍在課室以外,亦享有非常廣闊的學習機會,而且大部分學校對學生的日常培育都非常專業及嚴謹,看重同學們軟技能的栽培。數字清楚顯示,比起公立學校的學生,英國私立學生參與的體育活動多近一倍,且大多數私校更將個性培養列入正規教育範疇之內。
 
私校學費升幅低 
對於有意將子女送往英國私立學校留學的家長,ISC今年的報告也帶來非常實際的好消息,就是私立學校的學費在2016年升幅是1994年來最少的,但私立學校為學生所提供的經濟資助及獎學金,卻是升幅最大的一年。換言之,家長可以在錫住荷包的情況下,讓子女享受極具質素保障的優質教育。難怪此報告一出,各種「英私立學校危機重重」的危言聳聽傳聞都不攻自破,更加為廣大家長及學生對入讀英國私立學校打下了一支強心針。
