【頭條日報】英國名校充斥香港小圈子?

有頗多家長在子女考入了港人熟知的名校後以為一天都光曬,但後來找我表示想轉校,原因多是三個字:「唔啱讀」。



「唔啱讀」背後理由好多:壓力大讀得辛苦、不適應學校學習氣氛,校內小圈子嚴重等。英國某些傳統男校女校如Headington、 Shrewsbury、 King's Canterbury等,雖然學校名牌顯赫,但須知校方來港招生較密,學校代表較熟悉某些香港名校,導致校方收取香港老牌名校的學生偏多。比如貴子弟是新界區某直資中學生產的尖子,去到這些學校可能會跟來自港島區老牌名校的學生格格不入有隔閡,難打進已建立多年的小圈子,書自然讀得不開心。


又或者囝囝囡囡是創意爆棚的學生,不適合在 Alevels被鞭策催谷下學習,那麼入到 Harrow,Wycombe Abbey 這類學校,也就難免度日如年。



近日有報導指有港生棄名校入村校,因讀得開心反而情緒行為有改善,成績躍進,這也是明證。所以在英識教育常介紹一些赫赫有名的學校外,我也想分享一些在港名氣稍遜,因較少來香港收生,但可能更適合某類學生的英國學校。



Abbots Bromley是間有超過140年歷史的小型寄宿學校,只有幼稚園和中六預科才兼收男生。校方標榜不會催谷學生,鼓勵同學自發學,小校排名中彪炳,一直有畢業生入到牛津劍橋,不過Abbots Bromley更耀眼的成就來自舞蹈和藝術,每年都有同學入讀皇家芭蕾舞學院及藝術學院,為該校從學術以外爭光



Abbots Bromley 校方關愛照顧學生的興趣和成長需要。近兩年才派出校長舍監等來港面見家長,兩人親切有禮,非銷售高手但注重啓蒙啓發,收生要求一直着重同學能否在該校發揮自己所長,是間絕對值得推薦的Happy school。校方代表Russell Alkins於明日下午(九月廿三日)來港在喜來登酒店出席升學活動,大家到時既可來了解一下這間神奇小校,屆時亦會有 Samuel Chan 談英國 和 章文彬 升學零距離,現場進一步和大家分享如何貼地貼心地挑選最合適的英國寄宿學校。名額有限登記可致電 9153 2926 或上 www.facebook.com/ukchitchat

#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.
