【信報】英名校登陸香港三大睇

上文講到,英國重量級名校前後腳登陸香港,計有已上岸的Harrow,九月開學的Malvern College,以及不日登場的Shrewsbury School。這次來講講要分辨這些海外分校的好壞,究竟要睇D乜。

 

第一,睇校長。

校長對學校質素的影響力毋庸置疑。香港Shrewsbury 的校長人選是令人對之翹首以待的一大原因。校長Ben Keeling曾在本港名牌國際學校Kellett School當校長。我和他在南華早報的座談會交流過,他雖無牛劍教育背景,也欠英國私校管理經驗,但他有教育抱負,且對本地國際學校的運作瞭如指掌。香港Shrewsbury是小學,小學校長講究要有愛心及親和力,Keeling 勝任有餘。一間學校有校長若此,有無原校的百年光環,都能給家長打下強心針。

 

第二,睇設施。

Shrewsbury在將軍澳所批到的地不夠大,因此來港只能開小學,不過這間Prep School的設備卻是極盡完善的。至於較幸運的Malvern,批到的地雖足夠一條龍辦學,不過中學部要跟幼稚園和小學分開兩個校園。我看過其建築藍圖也實地視察過,論設施,此校就算撕去英國Malvern的名牌招紙,也誠是一間高質學校。

 

第三,睇學生。

攞得香港政府地開國際學校,學校就要有一定海外生比例。不過家長應查清校方怎樣為海外生下定義,會否有海外護照的港生又算,持中國護照又算,持阿努阿圖護照又算。同學仔滿以為入讀國際學校,最後卻全校同聲同氣,便有違初衷。

 

講到尾,要衡量這些英國名校的香港分校的好壞,就應當將之看作一間獨立的國際學校去評鑑。家長還要多參加開放日,多與教職員交談,多觀察同學表現,樣樣打雀咁眼睇真,千萬別只被英國原校亮錚錚的招牌瞇了眼。

#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.
