【頭條日報:英名校大比拼】爵士校長的孖寶Wellington、Brighton

數全英我最欣賞的男女校,Wellington College和Brighton College會攜手上榜,兩校的一大共通點就是有我最尊崇的學者、作家、傳奇人物Sir Anthony Seldon曾經先後擔任校長。

Sir Seldon的傳奇之一,是做校長做到被封爵。他高瞻遠矚,魄力與能力都驚人。他一九九七年到Brighton College上任校長一職,將Brighton從一間名不經傳的學校變身現在全英排名頭五大名校,進步之鉅令人讚歎,二○一六學生A Level取A*至B的高達百分之九十七,IGCSE/GCSE有A*至A級的亦有百分之九十二,表現極為耀眼。

二○○六年Sir Seldon出任Wellington的第十三任校長,Wellington雖然沒有如Brighton般有學術上的驚人大躍進,一直在排名榜中上遊徘徊,二○一六其A Level達A*至B的有百分之八十五,IGCSE/GCSE得A*至A級別的有百分之九十二。然而在我眼中,Wellington整體仍是不折不扣全英國最優秀男女校之一,尤其是Wellington是少數有lB Middle Year Programme可選的學校,同學lB的平均分是亮眼的三十八點五。需知在英國能把lB課程辦得好的學校寥寥可數,Wellington堪稱是全英把lB課程辦得最成功的佼佼者。

Sir Seldon在Wellington的豐功偉績,還包括致力推動寄宿文化。過往Wellington一直被哈羅、伊頓學生嘲諷不是真正的寄宿學校,原因是校內有百多名日校生,但Sir Seldon把這形勢逐扭轉,主張學生在宿舍與人相處也是重要的學習。於是在他領導下,Wellington的全寄宿人數不斷攀升,現有近八成學生都是宿生。

多得這位出類拔萃的校長,Brighton與Wellington現都成為爭崩頭的熱門學校。據說Wellington去年便出現三百人爭一個位的情況。校方篩選嚴謹,如發現申請者不是他們想要的學生,連入學試也擋駕,反而Brighton雖然收生也很激烈,但所有申請者至少有機會參加考試,不過呢,就一律要先奉上登記費三百英鎊。大量英國學校,包括上述的Brighton和Wellington,將於九月份來港招生,有意報考可以致電68715840。

#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.
