【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】英老牌寄宿學校-Uppingham School

英國寄宿學校UppinghamSchool是所老牌的全宿男女校,全校約有八百名學生,男生共有四百七十名,女生有三百三十名,只有少於十名學生因特別理由而不寄宿,寄宿率超過九成八。學校屬於RugbyGroup成員學校,RugbyGroup在上世紀六十年代成立,由十八所名校組成,包括有Charterhouse、Harrow、Oundle、Rugby、Winchester、WellingtonCollege等港人耳熟能詳的學校,反映Uppingham非吳下阿蒙。

現任校長RichardHarman二○○六年到任,在位十年,評價甚高,帶領學校成為一所全人、博雅教育的學校,令學生充滿信心和熱誠,並具遠景在將來對社會成為有承、有影響力的人。

UppinghamSchool位於Rutland,在倫敦西北約一小時車程,鄰近是Leicester城,學校校園偌大,空間感強,活動多元化,正是全人教育需要的配套;以音樂傳統上最強,每年有四、五十名學生取得音樂獎學金,其合唱團具名氣,常被邀到各大教堂演出,學生學習樂器風氣甚盛,據悉每周進行七百多堂個人音樂樂器導修課。成績方面,近年在A-Level考得A*-A的約五成至六成五內,七成畢業生考入RussellGroup,包括約有十名能考入牛津或劍橋;能考入醫學院、經濟學等熱門學科也不少。

UppinghamSchool提供Year9至中六課程,Year9每年約取錄一百五十名新生,中六取錄四十至五十名;申請入學兩年前要先登記。下星期五(九月十八日),他們的中六課程主任RichardO'Donoghue及海外學生聯絡辦主任JerryRudman會接見家長及參與學生面試,主要招收Year9及中六學生,二○一六年Year9尚有少量學額,適宜今年讀中二的學生申請;至於今年讀中一的學生,不妨報讀二○一七年的Year9,預早報名,獲取錄機會較高。

UppinghamSchool每學年學費連宿費為三萬四千英鎊,以校園設備及教學資源論,尚且合理;倘要培養子女接受英式全人教育兼備全宿學習氛圍,並希望以音樂、藝術作為學習成長元素,此校應是不二之選。

在九月十八日有意預約面見Uppingham代表,可致電熱線電話:31840362,Uppingham的講座則在下午二時半,出席講座可WhatsApp:61075222報名。

另Warwick(九月十八日上午九時),King'sCanterbury(九月二十一日下午七時),Abingdon(九月二十二日下午六時),Charterhouse(九月二十三日中午十二時)等學校均有講座,報名出席可電31840876,頭條日報讀者優先;另Abingdon面談則在(九月二十三日上午九時開始)。

#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.
