【頭條日報:英名校大比拼】老牌學校 傳統中求變

講英國傳統寄宿學校,很多人腦海泛起哈利波特的霍格華茲,現實中英國最類似的學校,非一眾羅馬天主教學校莫屬。老派寄宿學校與宗教有密切關係,最享負盛名的天主教學校,不少都是近年才接受外國學生,部份至今仍未開放予國際市場,但有兩間傳統天主教寄宿學校與時並進,接受海外學生,這兩間就是Downside School及Stonyhurst College。

Downside和Stonyhurst都是全英歷史最悠久的天主教學校之一,要評價這類型學校已不只限看學術成績,而是要看歷史、看文化、看校園的設施。通常天主教私立學校,校園地標是其教堂,Downside的Downside Abbey Church全國有名,而Stonyhurst校園有一級文物建築,莊嚴古雅,令不少人將它與伊頓混淆,也可媲美英國的其他城堡。

然而,城堡再宏偉,極其量也只記載學校輝煌的歷史,不代表其教育資源充裕,教育質素到底還看校方有沒有努力追上時代。這方面Downside和Stonyhurst兩校都做得相當好。前者在體育表現尤其令人刮目相看,其副校長本身欖球名宿,上任後大事優化學校運動設施,學校欖球隊有晉身NatWest Vase 四強的佳績,足球隊亦在一五至一六年立下不敗的紀錄。講運動,Downside確是在各個層面都能稱霸,我很鼓勵喜歡運動的同學仔考慮報讀Downside。


Downside School及Stonyhurst College兩間老牌天主教學校,近年都能突破故我表現出色,兩校肯接收海外學生,是天下追求優質教育莘莘學子的福氣,絕對值得再三考慮。如需查詢以上兩所學校收生詳情,可致電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.
