【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】百大英校之一Epsom College

英國名校Epsom College由一群醫生組織團體創辦,原是十九世紀中一所教育孤兒及領取救濟金的弱勢社群學校,發展至今,Epsom仍跟英國醫務協會(British Medical Association)BMA有聯繫,BMA有超過十五萬名醫生及醫學生會員。Michael Salmon在一九八○年撰寫的《Epsom College1855-1980》中提及學校的一萬名畢業生中的三分之一最後成為醫務專業人士,可見Epsom College與BMA的關連成就了學校的名聲。

Epsom原是男校,一九七六年中六招收女生,後來到一九九六年各級皆招收女生,成為男女校。現時學校共有七百五十名學生,男女生比例約為六比四,寄宿生佔六成,寄宿人數超過四百名。

校長Jay Piggot兩年前到任,曾在伊頓公學(Eton College)任教十七年,大學主修英文,精通文藝復興時代的英國文學。據悉,校長在校內常參與學生活動,與學生打成一片,家長對校長評價也高,認為他為學校帶來新氣象。

學校公開試成績一向位居前列,GCSE考獲A*-A的達七成二,A-Level則有五成八,位列全英百大學校之一。以傳統英國寄宿學校來說,算是意爭取好成績的學校;老師與學生的課堂及導修每星期接觸有五十五個小時,時數特長,不但讓學生知道自己的程度及懂得如何去改進,另方面老師也從測驗以及與學生互動的情況下知道學生的學習情況。活動方面,學校運動競賽超強,欖球七人賽男、女子組皆在地區稱霸,曲棍球在Surrey贏得U18冠軍,另有學生考獲史丹福高爾夫球獎學金,是十年內首名歐洲學生奪得這項殊榮。

Epsom College提供Year9至中六課程。入讀Year 9今年開始毋須考入學試,只考UKiset及面試便行,比申請其他學校方便快捷;二○一五年是學校首次實施考UKiset可入學的措施;現時Year 9每年有一百三十個學額,兩年前開始登記;Year 10插班則只有三至五個學額;另中六有四十五至五十個學額。

據悉,明年九月Year 9尚有餘額可申請,現時在香港就讀中二的學生仍可申請,中六明年則已滿額,除非有特殊情況學校才會考慮。有見及此,章某特事特辦在十一月二十二日(星期六)上午十一時舉辦講座介紹Epsom College申報情況,對此校有興趣的家長及學生們,可用WhatsApp61075222登記出席,《頭條日報》讀者優先,費用全免。學生可帶備校內成績表作初步評估,然後可在一周內考UKiset。

#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.
