【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】全英最有腦名校大地震

今期留英教育界最沸騰的話題,首推CardiffSixthFormCollege的大地震。

CardiffSixthFormCollege是英國排名第一的ALevel學校,BBC甚至以「全英最有腦學校」稱之,學術成就享負盛名,它任何風吹草動,必定矚目。大地震發生前好幾個月已謠言滿天飛,最終塵埃落定:學校創辦人YasminSawar離開自己一手建立並創出驕人成績的學校,投身OxfordInternationalCollege,推動新的教育理念,舉辦嶄新世界課程。

CardiffSixthFormCollege校長一職則由GarethCollier出任,學校並且將由Duke'sEducation所收購。能夠接手這間位於威爾斯首都的英國頂級名校,Duke'sEducation絕非泛泛之輩。這間教育機構成立於一九九九年,旗下有三所學校,分別是倫敦北部的FineArtsCollege、倫敦西部專攻醫療科學科目的AcornHouseCollege,以及在Kent的RochesterIndependentCollege。集團涉足出版界,攻考牛津劍橋的著名攻略書籍《SoyouwanttogoOxbridge?Tellmeaboutabanana……》,是其得意出品。Duke'sEducation在升學及就業資訊有很高的聲譽,年來在不少學校舉辦過升學及職業訓練講座,英國有些學校將自己校內的職業發展部門外判,就是由Duke's接辦。對於協助學生升學及就業發展,它表現出色兼經驗豐富。

CardiffSixthFormCollege有如此具規模及經驗的集團作後盾,在企業化管理、新的資金和更充裕資源的情況下,會有如何一片新景象,是大家最想知道的。家長尤其關注的,是學校走出以往由YasminSawar領導下的神話,邁向企業化,到底學術上是否仍能保持一貫的優勢,維持過去的佳績?

大地震後,許多仍是未知之數。新校長GarethCollier將親臨香港,在二月二十二日香港足球會舉行的InformationDay介紹學校的最新情況,由晚上七時開始解答家長和學生的問題。但要真正了解CardiffSixthFormCollege在變天後何去何從,大家要拭目以待。想知更多可致電香港代表專線5500-3655。

#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.
