【頭條日報:升學專家有話兒】首選英國

古語有云,養兒一百歲,長憂九十九。在升學中心工作,見不少來為子女升學前途作諮詢的父母,確是子女未出門便先天下之憂而憂。也難怪,仔女是心肝椗,一下子要親手把他們送到人生路不熟之地,也實在是人生的重要抉擇。將心比己,做父母難,做留學生的父母更難,所以工作內外遇到有再多疑問的家長,我都一定會盡心協助,但求用我的知識力量去消除他們的疑慮。

香港家長有感性一面,但講到為子女選擇留學目的地,他們便顯得非常理智。最近一項調查顯示,香港家長為兒女挑選留學國家,接近九成人首要考慮條件是當地的學術水平。六成七受訪者表示生活質素才是最重要因素,至於安全保障及升學費用,分別只有六成五受訪者覺得在揀選留學地點時具有最舉足輕重的重量。

這調查結果說明了甚麼呢?看來本地家長肯忍痛送心肝寶貝出國,最主要是出於關心子女的前途,期望他們能獲得最佳的教育,增加將來在社會的競爭力。同一項調查還發現,四成二受訪者表示英國是他們為子女選擇升學地方的首選,香港家長這麼緊張學術水平,能夠得到他們大多數的青睞,足證英國的學術實力是得到認可的。

揀了英國的受訪者當中,超過七成人其實自己本身或家人曾經負笈英國,才會有此決定。我覺得這是一件好事,說明了他們的英國留學經驗非常正面,親身或貼身經歷過其好處,才會認為值得讓下一代重新體驗。事實上英國作為升學之選,其優勢正在於教育水平非常有保障,香港人對這個地方又非常熟悉。至於其輸蝕始終是費用不便宜,不過本地大部份家長眉精眼企,明白價值與價錢的分別,再加上近日英鎊大跌,英倫的吸引力,又再升上一層樓了。

#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.
