【頭條日報】2017全英最佳私校榜出爐

英國電訊報二○一七最佳私立學校排名榜已經出爐,Cardiff Sixth Form College獨佔鰲頭,第二位是直升十一位的The Perse School, Cambridge,Queen Ethelburga’s College保持五甲寶座,而The Leys School由去年一百二十位飛躍至七十六位,最佳進步獎實至名歸。



睇排名榜的秘訣就是不能齋看排名——咁玄?講白點,即家長不應對榜上名次盲目崇拜或排斥。毫無疑問,名列前矛的Cardiff、Concord、QE都是學術上的勁旅,A Level有八成以至九成以上A*至A的驕人成績。不過留意番,這些國際學校有大量海外生,且報讀的多是數理化這些較易量化的科目,成績因而有所拉高,是不爭的事實。



或者正確些講,睇排名榜還應read between排名:高踞榜首自是有料的學校,漏網之魚也可以是出類拔萃的一群。要明白排名榜不利於英式傳統寄宿學校,因為這類學校著重傳統文科如拉丁、美術、歷史等,這些都不是易量化的科目,無疑影響成績上表現。



像我的母校Gresham’s,這次排名榜位列一百八十一,但它是著名HMC集團最顯赫院校之一。另一上佳例子是今年落得排名九十二的Roedean School,此校實是英國三大女寄宿學校,每年慕名而至的女生擠破門楣。至於Canford School(111)、Wellington School(226)、Queen's College(219)這些HMC學校,它們不是排名榜最上游份子,但卻不反映其學術高水平。再講,殿堂級名校哈羅、伊頓、Tonbridge老早已退出排名榜的遊樂場,原因是以其江湖地位,根本不必再在榜上爭一日之長短了。



不厭其煩講完再講,排名榜只供參考,它不是為子女找好學校的天書,因一間學校好與壞,還得看校長的經驗及履歷,看學校為學生增值的能力,看學生升大學的出路等,而家長揀學校的最最最重要考慮,到底還看仔女的性格喜好和需要。想了解以上學校詳情,可致電9153 2926。

#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.
