【信報】 私立學校優勝處有數得計

香港家長為仔女入名校網而上演現代「孟母三遷」,大家都耳熟能詳。 原來天下父母人同此心,英國也有一樣的現象,不少家長為了子女可以入到頂尖的政府學校,都會搬到鄰近地區,令著名官校附近的樓價大幅上升。有統計指出,英國頭三十間政府學校郵政編碼區內的物業,平均比起同郡其他地方高一成二之多。教育界已有人在敲警鐘,認為此風不可長,因為意味經濟環境較差的家庭可能被剝削接受優秀教育的機會。

 

香港有些家長對英國政府學校也趨之若鶩,部分家庭在港英年代取得英國護照,覺得子女去英國留學自然要入政府學校,不惜千哩托親扭盡六壬,偏偏最終不能如願以償者居多。梗係啦,英國優異的官立學校是搶手熱煎堆,即使是本地人有時使出渾身解數,最終還是得吃閉門羹。香港家長大多需要子女住校寄宿,但全英格蘭地區只有四十間政府寄宿學校,真可謂入官立學校難,入官立寄宿學校難上加難。更不用說,大部分政府學校的中門仍未為對海外生大開,目前肯收國際學生的官立學校寥寥可數。香港同學仔即使好彩有英國護照,也要考慮這些官立學校可能存在質素參差、良莠不齊的問題。

 

有見及此,對於香港家長,我一般的建議是,如果有能力,私立學校始終是比較理智的選擇。以「英國私校校長大會(HMC)」旗下二百八十五間的私立學校為例,現為二萬多學生提供教育,規模在十年來有逾兩成的增長。這些私校的出色成績更是有目共睹的,英國頂尖十大大學中,每四名學生中便有一個來自HMC的學校。這些私校都歡迎海外生,並能提供不同選擇,近八成學校是男女校,13%是男校,8%是女校,而六成學校提供不同形式的寄宿服務。最最最重要的是,在HMC金漆招牌下,學校的質素有保障。HMC學校平均一個老師照顧九個同學,比起官立學校一對二十二的差距很大。HMC學生每週參與運動和課外活動的時間,是官立學校學生的一倍。各方面與政府學校相比,私立學校的優勝之處絕對是有數得計的。

#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.
