【信報】 英國轉校的不可不知

「Samuel, 讀左個學期,我仔/女想話要一定轉校!」


聖誕季節,收到最多家長的求助,就是想幫子女轉校。無它嘅,不少首次赴英的同學仔剛讀完第一個學期,基於各種原因覺得不適合,想趁假期時轉校,但始終適應需時,而且家長愛子心切,心感無助,有不安是正常的。


大部分英國學校亦有明文規定退學要一個學期前通知,學生九月才上學,現在才讀了一個學期,怎可能有時間預早通知?為了這one term notice,同學仔是否要等多一個學期呢?



給大家一個重要貼士:規矩是死的,英國學校更重視學生well being,如學生有足夠離校原因,校長們大都是通情達理的人,在這種情況下,校方亦明白在開學前作離校通知根本不可能。是以遇到這不得已的情況,家長只要坦白地跟校長商量,學校很大機會是會酎情處理,允許同學仔在聖誕假期後退學轉校的。


不過我也有責任提醒大家一下,英國的轉校程序未必很難,但要留心的是,校不能常轉,皆因將來報大學時如被發現有纍纍轉校史,終究不是一件好事。是以家長和同學仔考慮轉校時,必定要清楚自己想要的東西,並有充分把握新學校可以符合到你的要求,才好落實走這一著,始終同一問題不一定轉後後必有解決。


此外,同學仔的年級,也直接影響轉校時的考量。子女如就讀九年級或以下,當然比較富彈性,隨時轉校問題也不大。到了十年級,由於馬上要應考公開試,轉校的決定就不能掉以輕心。原校讀了一個學期的學科,在新學校是否接到軌?英國有很多不同的考評局,新舊學校的考評局是否相同?總之不能因為新學校十年級有位肯收你,便毅然去馬。至於十一級的同學,基本上過了第一個學期要轉校機會已很微,一動不如一靜。十二級的同學仔就跟十級一樣正值公開試年份,要轉校就要肯定新舊學校可以交接,以保證公開試可以順利過渡為最重要考慮。


轉校到底是大抉擇,不宜輕舉妄動,有疑問時不妨找升學專家給予意見斟酎下,以免有後顧之憂。下星期,我會繼續講關於在英國轉校要注意的事項。

#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.
