DSE還有幾個月便放榜,考得好的同學,我固然替他們開心,考得不理想的同學,也送你一句英國人常用嘅說話,叫blessing in disguise,中文解釋最接近應該是塞翁失馬,焉知非福。想當年,我自己也承受過讀書不成的挫敗感,感同身受。當年我在香港成績差被標籤為「垃圾」,心灰到極。但原來上天給你關了一扇窗,卻會為你開一道門。去到英國,我發現自己原來也非無可救藥。在寄宿學校栽培下,不論學業和課外活動都有莫大進步,整個人脫胎換骨。

經歷過在香港被奚落看扁的柳暗,我終於在英國找到自己可以茁壯成長的花明。後來我決心辦海外升學,多多少少也是想本地同學明白,香港教育制度以外還有各種不同求學的可能。一次半次考試成績欠佳不足以論終生成敗,同學們要把眼光放遠,如果肯走出comfort zone,定可海闊天空。

當然,考完DSE的學生,應不會想再赴英重讀中學,希望用最短時間,考入最好的大學。對於DSE考生,大學基礎課程就是理想的選擇。英國Foundation歷史悠久,入學門檻相對較低,只需一年時間,可銜接大量大學課程,當然受公開試成績一般的同學歡迎。現更有國際大學基礎課程,提供的升學出路寬闊可助學生邁向世界,真正做到海闊天空。EF Foundation的國際基礎課程便是一例,同學畢業後想往英、美、奧地利、德國等世界各地留學,都受到認可。其大學取錄率百分之百,九成以上學生考到第一志願的英國大學,港澳同學中更有百分之五十六入到英國首三十名大學。這反映了課程能夠照顧同學的個人興趣、才華及強項,確實能令他們發揮最大潛能。

同學,出國讀銜接課程,可能聽起來似是次選,但相信我,有一天你會真正明白到甚麼是Blessing in disguise。

#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.
