【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】留英「捨北取南」

話說MrBean男主角RowanAtkinson的母校StBeesSchool停辦的消息一出,很多英國家長都額手稱慶,何解?因為StBeesSchool位於英國北部,地區近年經濟欠佳,於是很多父母為子女選擇學校都會避開北方。

現在連這間具相當歷史及名氣的學校都捱不下去,證明家長們所抱的「捨北取南」原則不無道理。

香港家長為想子女入好學校都會扭盡六壬揀校網。人同此心,英國家長何嘗不也會以地區來作為揀學校的指標。他們偏愛南部,不單止因為南英相對富庶,此外南部氣候較溫和,子女在這裏求學身心都會較健康。

英國南部可算是最受英國人歡迎的校區,例如是Eastbourne和Brighton這類城鎮,更是熱門升學點。這校區附近隨便數數就有EastbourneCollege、RoedeanSchool、BrightonCollege和Bede'sSeniorSchool等名校。

但當然,要講英國名校區,就不得不提英國西南部。這區包含了Cheltenham和Oxford兩城,單是Oxford的盛名已令全球莘莘學子嚮往不已。除了牛津大學,區內的名牌大學還有UniversityofBristol及UniversityofExeter,也令很多學生慕名而至。這區的中學在全英也響負盛名,佼佼者是校園氛圍古色古香但教學宗旨非常與時並進的WycliffeCollege、《嘩鬼上學去》中農夫也盛讚的MountKelly,以及對學生學術與品格都要求嚴格的PlymouthCollege。三所學校同樣都稱得上能文能武,學術成績優異,體育和藝術的成就亦很突出,是西南部的一門三傑。

我自己遊英時對西南部印象深刻,還因為這裏是兩大國家公園所在地,當真是湖光山色風景如畫。如果家長和同學對赴英國西南部升學有興趣,上述三間西南部名中學:WycliffeCollege、MountKelly和PlymouthCollege,原來已組成了一個西部學校聯盟,更會於本月來港在英國文化協會升學展中舉行聯合招生,方便香港同學有同時報讀的難得機會,不容錯過。想知更多可致電香港代表專線91532926。

#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.
