【信報】讀名校暑期班入學有優勢

讓子女去英國讀暑期班的得著,除了同學仔可以來個英國學校生活初體驗,兼有個充實多姿的夏天外,其實選擇得宜,暑期班可以成為入讀英國學校的跳板。不少英國的公立學校及知名私校,都有開辦自己的暑期班,開放予校外的同學參與。各招生代表都曾表示,同學仔如讀過學校的暑期班,因為對學校有了親身體驗和了解,對取錄絕對有優勢的。事實上,個別有學校甚至開宗名義講到明,讀暑期班取錄有優先,而以我的專業經驗,亦確實見過為數不少這樣的個案。

寄宿學校暑假老師會離校,所以一般學校會選擇與獨立教育機構合辦/外判暑期班,當中較受歡迎的,女校數有Badminton School、Cheltenham Ladies’ College 和 Wycombe Abbey ,男校有Tonbridge,而男女校則有Oundle和Concord College。

協和學院Concord College的暑期班獲得不少好評,其一大特色是課程由學校舉辦,十歲以上的同學仔已可參加。這家國際寄宿學校的暑期班秉承學校傳統為來自世界各地不同文化背景的學生提高跨文化理解能力的機會。完整的科學、數學或經濟學課程都經精心編排,務求短時間內令他們的學術水平有大躍進。此外,少不得的當然有全面的英語課程,閱讀、寫作、口語及聽力都兼顧周到,同時給予同學有機會了解英國人的生活方式及文化背景,為將來留學英國打好穏固基礎。

Badminton School作為女校,暑期班卻歡迎十三至十七歲的男女同學仔參加,兩星期和四星期的課程,學校與英國知名教育機構Etherton Education合辦,每週有不同主題,銳意要以不呆板方式去改善同學的英語能力,加強學術技巧,同時亦建立領導才能及團隊精神。密集的英語課程,透過做報告、辯論與話劇,將英語活學活用。Badminton暑期班的活動以別開生面聞名,連我這個大人聽到都覺得新奇有趣,例如著飲衫去Bristol 動物園的華麗大㕔享用正統的高級英式晚餐,如此難能可貴的經歷,人生能有幾何?

女同學參加Badminton的暑期班,更可作長線考慮,事關校方會為暑期課程同學特別提供面試及考核機會,一旦取錄,學校更會將暑期課程的一半學費退回。暑假前女同學開開心心去上暑期班,暑假後快快樂樂帶著一個入學學位兼半數暑期班學費回家,真是夏天完結前的一大美事。

#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.
