【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】負笈英國宜預早準備

送子女負笈英國升讀寄宿學校,第一步是蒐集英國寄宿學校資料。英國私立寄宿學校數以千計,分佈在全英地區,眼花繚亂,也許不知從何入手,假如找升學代理代勞,又恐怕代理因學校佣金問題,介紹一些不適合子女升學的學校,倘多找幾所升學輔導中心,多費心神之餘,更覺難於分辨誰是誰非。求人不如求己,宜先在網上蒐集資料,搜查學校網頁,再查察學校公開試成績及同類型學校的比較排名,再搜查各英國升學討論區,如此總得有個認知和學校概況,再按照子女的成績、興趣、課外活動範圍等,選定六至七所學校,向升學代理提出代辦,又或自家申請也可以。

不過,要注意部份排名前列的學校報名註冊日期是在入學前一年或更早,最宜年半前或甚至兩年前開始蒐集升學資料。此外,部份學校會透過指定兩三個香港的升學中心或升學代理代辦,在他們的學校網頁會提及,可按圖索驥,亦有極小部份學校有指定一所香港升學中心代辦報名、面試及考試;一般升學代理或升學中心不收取申請人費用,或只酌量收手續費,他們的收入來源主要來自代辦英國學校的費用,包括考試費等。


留意前列學校報名期

英國不少學校的入學考試會委託香港考評局安排考試,也有小部份學校要求申請人須到英國學校考試及面試,但一般會額外安排日期。總言之,一切視乎個別學校的入學政策及要求,不一而足。

成績佳、或口碑及聲望佳的學校相信是大部份家長的心儀對象。按理,全港前列排名百分之三十以內的學生,應適合英國排名前列百強的學校;舉例,Band1下游學校、全級在百分之五十上下,理應是全港前列排名百分之二十內的學生,入讀英國前列學校,應游刃有餘;假如是就讀Band 2中游學校、全級約在百分之三十至四十,則應是全港前列排名百分之三十上下的學生,勉強可考入全英百強末的學校,也許更適合排名一百至二百之內的學校。

事實上,全英排名前三百強的學校,皆是具有較高質素的教學水平,及有嚴謹的紀律及關顧系統,另備有較充足的活動項目設備及設施的學校,部份更自設各項學術上的研發中心作為學生課餘發揮興趣和潛力的地方,也有學校在偌大的校園以外自設戶外活動中心,甚至是馬術中心、高爾夫球場等獨特設備;典型寄宿學校則多具備室內外泳池、舞蹈室、大型體育館、戶外草地球場、網球場、壁球室等體育活動設施,以及藝術及設計中心、音樂排練室、音樂廳等藝術文化活動設施。

 

找適合子女發展學校

英國寄宿學校學費及膳宿費用昂貴,人所共知,一學年費用支出動輒三四萬英鎊,是否「學有所值」,見仁見智,只是英國私立寄宿學校提供的教學、學術設施甚至活動、體育設備、寄宿環境及設置皆是一絲不苟,全球最強,在芸芸千計私立寄宿學校難找最好,或只能找更好;所以找一所適合子女發展才算是最好吧!

#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.
