【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】留學英國 有仔趁嫩送

身為英國留學的升學顧問,我的責任之一,是推介有權威性的資訊來源,作為家長的引路明燈。說到有價值的英國升學參考資料,lSC鼎鼎大名,不可不識。lSC,即IndependentSchoolCouncil,他們每年就英國私立學校進行大型調查所發表的詳盡報告,非常值得參考。

二○一六年,lSC調查了其屬會一千二百多間英國私立學校,發現私校學生人數創一九七四有紀錄以來的新高,且公開試成績優異。lSC屬下的私校學生在二○一五年GCSE的平均成績是兩個A*及七個A,Alevel則有過半數私立學校學生獲A*或A的等級。

私校成績斐然,自然令全英,甚至全世界學生慕名而至。ISC發表,原來全英學生入讀私校的比例,會隨着學生年齡改變。以英格蘭為例,在ISC私立學校就讀的十六歲或以上學生,佔百分之十六;十一歲的學生,佔全英近百分之六;四歲私校學生佔全英同齡學童百分之三。

這一串數字說明了一個走勢,就是有不少學童會在求學期間會由公立學校轉到私立學校讀書,而且隨着學生年紀愈大,轉讀私校的人數便愈多,特別是十五歲與十六歲之間,私校學生佔全英學生人數有近一倍的升幅,即大量英國學生在這年紀由公立學校轉入私立學校。

對有心送子女往英國升學的家長這數據包含了很重要的啓示。不少家長覺得等子女十六、七歲才負笈英國並不遲,但原來這年紀在英國想入讀有水準的私立學校,便要面對轉校潮帶來的更激烈競爭。換言之,原來除了「有仔趁嫰生」的人生金科玉律,想子女較輕鬆地在英國私立學校取得一席之地,從此享有更優質的教育及入大學的競爭力,「有仔(女)趁嫰送」也很重要。ISC統計數據確實暴露了英國轉校潮的端倪,愈早讓子女赴英入讀私校,他們的升學路便應會平坦順暢得多。

#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.
