【信報:寄宿學校攻略】為學生增值享盛名
如要我用一字概括Wycliffe College,我會用Development。這間位於Gloucestershire的著名寄宿學校,近年發展蓬勃,成績有目共睹。它特別值得推介的是為海外學生設計的發展年份(The Development Year),香港同學中四已可入讀,透過一年課程,便能獲得六年級所需要的技能,等同跳級,時間和金錢上都有着數!
 
更重要的是,這個發展年份針對海外學生升學的特殊需求,專注培訓同學仔的英語、科目知識及學習技巧,並協助他們融入英國學校生活,為在英國升大學作好全方位的準備。
 
Wycliffe屬中型規模,除了這個為海外學生而設的發展年份,還有22個GCSE組合共32個科目,當中既有傳統學科,亦有專業領域如心理學、音樂技術的科目,甚至連運動及旅遊觀光,也有BTEC國家文憑課程,照顧對實用科目有興趣的同學。
 
一間學校能夠考慮同學的興趣和需要,往往因為它秉持因才施教的原則,在這理念上與Wycliffe一脈相承的,我還想到Plymouth College 。
 
體育精英搖籃 
Plymouth同樣位於英國西南部,校園與原野及沿岸美景為鄰。學校在1877年建校,卻是傳統又前瞻的教育先驅.Plymouth的收生標準不算嚴苛,但學術處於全國高水平,GCSE,A Level及IB的成績都相當驕人,可見校方的栽培功不可沒。這裏提供的課程十分廣泛,更鼓勵同學學習不應局限於課室及書本上,難怪這裏有來40個不同國家地區的學生,他們不但讀書叻,運動、音樂及表演藝術的成就都享負盛名。尤其是運動方面,學校不惜工本在多個項如游泳、劍擊、潛水等,聘用國際級甚至奧運冠軍級人馬來執教鞭,亦設有運動獎學金,使Plymouth成為體育精英的搖籃。
 
事實上,如要我一個字來總結Wycliffe College和Plymouth College兩所學校,我會用上Value-added。這不是單純是我的個人意見,Plymouth和Wycliffe在全國增值排名榜上都表現非常優異,Plymouth的增值度更加連續兩年在區內居冠。換言之,兩校收生門檻不算很高,但學生經過優質教育洗禮,都能把自己能力盡情發揮,超越自己。

#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.
