【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】搖身一變的國際學校

上周提到英國四所神奇學校,CardiffSixthFormCollege(CSFC)、QueenEthelburga'sCollege(QE)、ConcordCollege以及RuthinSchool,其共同特點是A-level成績甚標青,躋身排名榜前列位置。尤以CSFC最突出,連續六年在全英A-level排名榜奪冠,英國廣播公司(BBC)曾在年初拍了一小時紀錄片,報道該校辦學概念和何以受到追捧。至於QE又是另一個故事,由原來傳統且設備齊全的寄宿學校,在三數年間變為一所國際學校,擁有近五成的海外學生,自此之後,成績扶搖直上,成為名校。

QE在國際化之後,由傳統變為以學生為本,讓學生在舒適的環境和氣氛下學習,效果良佳;並提供其他寄宿學校較欠缺的活動設施,如小型賽車、BMX單車,突破學生對寄宿學校有的新體會。另方面,QE開設網上平台供家長與學校保持聯絡,並提供多語言溝通,即使家長英文水平不足,也可用中文跟學校聯繫,讓家長百分百了解其子女在校的進度和表現。QE雖被詬病為豪裝學校,但一切皆以學生及家長需要為主,所以海外家長對QE引以為傲,認為QE是新一代英國寄宿學校的典範,加上多元學習文化氛圍、公開試成績優異,證明新一代寄宿學校理應如此。

QE近年推出QEFaculty,提供BTEC類課程,讓學生具更多選擇,毋須只讀傳統的核心學科;QEFaculty在排名榜上也名列前茅,反映其辦學理念乃展現對學生的重視。英國學生及歐美學生絕對認為BTEC是個好選擇,非次選擇,也非因考不上A-level而選BTEC,而是認為BTEC正好是填補A-level學科不足發揮學生的潛質,正是QE推出Faculty的原因。

現階段,QECollege和Faculty在個別班級尚有九月份入學的學額,他們將在六月初來港與學生面試,詳情可到章某FB專頁搜查,或到Ohpama.com的「家長專區」查看章文彬的資訊。

另提醒今年DSE考生,倘有意申請歐洲的奧地利MODUL大學修讀酒店旅遊及管理,在五月底前報讀並獲取錄,可獲一千歐羅學費減免;他們提供的三年制旅遊及款待管理,以及環球管理理學士課程,每年平均學費少於十萬港元,生活費每月只為六千至七千港元,已包括膳宿、交通、醫保、上網費用等。有意報讀,請留意筆者FB專頁或「Oh!爸媽」網頁(Ohpama.com)。

#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.
