【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】英國Gresham

英國Gresham's School是所位於North Norfolk,Holt的男女校,在全英所有私校A-LevelA*-A百分率排名榜上排128位,能考得A*-A的佔52.69%,大約在全英男女私校寄宿學校中排名30位上下,香港學生考慮入讀英國男女私立寄宿學校,Gresham's School是所不錯的選擇。

Gresham's School有超過450年歷史,在1555年由John Gresham爵士創立,早期提供免教育予40名男學生,現址在1890年開始興建和發展,直到上世紀七十年代中,由男校轉為男女校,提供不同程度教育予3-18歲學童,並提供寄宿設施,現時學校的辦學宗旨是盡心盡力設計、教授、支援全面性的教育。

申請入Gresham's School Year9,截止日期較遲,為明年一月二十一日,海外生考Year 9要評估,一般考英、數以及面試,網上面談也行,另當然是遞交過去兩年成績表,報名費為170英鎊,成功與否不退還。

至於申請入中六,基本要面試(透過網上亦可),遞交過往成績以及原校的諮詢人信件,更可能要考入學試,學校更希望申請家長及學生可以親到學校探訪。中六有IB提供,但校內報考IB的數目始終不及A-Level,今年IB平均考得35.3分,約相當於UCAS分數510分,已夠入英國前列Russell Group大學。此校將興建中六學生中心,增加創新設計元素,以裝備學生入大學前的準備,並在2015年完成,其中亦包括新的中六學生宿舍。

Gresham's School的校內、外活動皆強,畢業校友不少是英國國家隊成員,諸如游泳、欖球、板球、划艇等;音樂及表現藝術設備也佳,另一門是攝影等的平面藝術也有不錯的表現。

關顧方面,有導師、舍監、輔導員及校牧一齊參與照顧學生心理及學習需要,有一套行之有效的關顧規格及系統,令到學生感覺像個大家庭的關懷,現時學校有300名寄宿生,約佔70%。

今年大約有50名考入大學,其中3名考入牛津、劍橋,其餘大部份能考入Russell Group大學。

學費方面,高中每年學費為二萬九千英鎊包括寄宿及膳食,其他雜費如學習支援以及額外課堂,均收取費用,譬如額外課堂每堂34英鎊,一個星期上一額外堂,一個月為130餘英鎊。

總的來說,Gresham's School實而不華,成績非最佳,但在男女寄宿學校來說已是一等,學校設備、關顧中上,適合香港Band1學校中等成績學生申請。

#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.
