【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】升讀英寄宿學校

英國寄宿學校由九月份開始會陸續派代表來港,招收二○一六年、二○一七年以至二○一八年度的學生,有意送子女負笈英國升讀寄宿學校,可密切留意各學校代表的到港日期,以便出席講座,或親自與入學代表或校長交談,多作了解,從中選擇合適學校。據悉,這兩、三個星期內來港的有Uppingham、Warwick、Abingdon、Charterhouse、King'sCanterbury等一二線名校。

今回先介紹位於牛津郡的男校AbingdonSchool(見圖),此校現時由女校長FelicityLusk管理,她於一○年上任,之前在紐西蘭的學校擔任音樂總監,是位風琴家,後來移居英國,曾任OxfordHigh校長,被形容為充滿信心、表達能力強和活力充沛,深受學生歡迎,可是明年八月將退休,繼任人是男校長MichaelWindsor,來自ReadingBlueCoatSchool。

Abingdon近年成績十分亮麗,A-Level成績在A*-A的佔六成五至七成,全英排名五十至六十之內,數理學科最強,但其藝術、戲劇及語言也不弱。另GCSE考得A*-A的佔七成九。

學校在教與學方面的質量被譽為優秀,歸功於Lusk校長辛勤經營而來,其提倡同學相互觀察的學習文化,令學生在學習上有相互鼓勵的動力,得到一定程度上的進步。學校亦推行教學想像之旅,讓學生在課堂外,參與增廣見聞的一日旅程,實踐讀萬卷書不如行萬里路概念。

活動方面,學校要求學生參與不同活動,同時要參與小學的課堂助理或義工,以增加歸屬感。

至於體育項目活動、藝術、設計、音樂、戲劇也被譽為有聲有色,且每年皆有機會與鄰近女校如StHelen'sandStKatharine's有合作演出機會。惟寄宿生不多,十三至十八歲的寄宿生只有一百四十名,跟走讀生的比例約為一比三左右。
有意出席AbingdonSchool入學總監JaneJorgensen來港主持的講座,可WhatsApp61075222預約或致電31840258查詢。

#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.
