【頭條日報:升學專家分析】人生轉捩點

咁快就一年,去年今日我和農夫到英國Mount Kelly School拍攝《嘩鬼上學去之農夫篇》,寄宿學校畢業十年嘅我,回憶如泉湧。MK跟我母校Gresham's School有很多相似之處,它們距離大城市不算近,卻毗鄰古色古香的英式小鎭(MK有Tavistock,Gresham's有Holt),而且兩者都是中型的傳統寄宿學校,校園氣氛親切融洽,是上佳的學習環境。

當然,兩院校在香港名不見經傳,沒有名人舊生,沒有五星級設施,我卻不厭其煩向家長落力推薦這一類學校,因它們排名榜上名次雖不高,沒大名鼎鼎,但學生反而少了壓力,參與度提高,老師注重培養他們的學習興趣,令同學輕鬆學習下成績卻能有大躍進。

不約而同,MK和Gresham's這個月底會來港與學生、家長會面,學校重視溝通,相比之下哈羅及威靈頓等名校關顧程度實遜色一點。

我聽到Gresham's Prep的校長James Quick會親自前來,興奮異常。James曾在英國頂級小學Dragons School當舍監,在任超過十年的他於英國教育界可是個炙手可熱人物。我很熱切想知母校在他率領下的新面貌,也想透過和他接觸,再次緬懷一下我的那些年。

我對母校有很深的感情,當年我九歲在香港被老師標籤成「垃圾」,是Gresham's收留了我,給我這被彈得一文不值的小孩賦予新生。

學校不單燃起我學習的興趣,在成績上裝備了我,還很尊重我,給了我很多機會,讓我夾band、入校隊打波、開個人畫展及無數個新嘗試⋯⋯令一度也相信自己一事無成的我,建立了信心,對學習重新燃點起熱情,首次覺得自己也可以做個有用有貢獻有作為的人。

Gresham's School和Mount Kelly都是增值度極高的學校。他們的學生入學時未必是最標青的一群,但離校時卻往往有出色的表現,超越自己,會考差不多全A的我,本可以考排名榜更高的學校,但真心,我從沒考慮過。

我入學時是個被評為無用的孩子,到今天我靠着在留學英國學到的尊重、鍛煉所得的堅持,以及培養出來的自信推動自己向理想邁進,英國留學實是我人生的轉捩點。

當留學顧問的我,能夠幫到高材生入名校當然開心,但如果我嘅經驗能夠幫到接近放棄的你,我會更滿足。今年首次留我個人電話(61075507),身體力行支持母校,打畀我!

#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.
