【信報:寄宿學校攻略】選校捨北取南
香港家長為想子女入好學校而孟母三遷的故事,屢聞不鮮。九成家長都會花時間分析各校網 ,為子女籌謀報讀攻略。可是這種以地區揀學校的做法,香港家長很少會應用到子女英國升學上 ,可能跟對英國地區不熟悉有關 。 其實英國人也會以地區作揀學校的指標,且近年大都抱着捨北取南的宗旨。南部由於天氣較好較暖 ,更重要的是, 南英相對富庶, 資源較佳,教育質素更有保障。相比下,北部經濟環境欠佳,尤其是 「 憨豆先生 」 Rowan Atkinson 在北部的母校 St Bees School 停辦的消息一出,很多父母便為避開北方的決定額手稱慶,也證明 「 以地區揀學校 」 在英國確是非常可靠的 。 
 
英國名校區
南部頭號最受英國人歡迎的,是位於東南面,特別是俗稱 Commuters towns 的城鎮如 Epsom 和 Reading。它們毗鄰倫敦,居裏民每天可以往返倫敦上班,因而得名。論中學,這地區有大批名校如 Epsom College、City of London Freemen 's School Sevenoaks School 和 The Royal School Haslemere 等可供選擇。
 
全英另一名校區,則是位於英國西南部,此區是兩大國家公園所在。 區內有 Cheltenham 和 Oxford 兩城,Oxford 的盛名不必多贅,Cheltenham 則有點像我們的跑馬地,其馬場聞名遐邇,每年的 Cheltenham Festival 舉國矚目 。 對於同學和家長 , 該區的牛津大學 、巴斯大學及艾希特大學這三個大名已經如雷貫耳。中學名單也同樣響噹噹:傳統現代兼備的 Wycliffe College、早前得電視節目 《 嘩鬼上學去之農夫篇 》 實地取景 Mount Kelly 、 以及對學生學術與品格都要求嚴格的 Plymouth College。 三間名校各具特色卻同樣出色 ,提供優質教育並能切合不同學生的需要 。 
 
曾有人半開玩笑跟我説 :以地域區分國家,豈不容易助長地區主義 ? 小弟也就半開玩笑回答 :如果有好處的話又何妨呢 ? 像剛剛提到在 Bath 地區的三大名中學 :Wycliffe College 、Mount Kelly 和 Plymouth College,近日便組成一個西部學校聯盟,還會本月來港在英國文化協會升學展中舉行聯合招生,讓本地同學可以一次過報讀這三大炙手可熱的名校 ,如此難得機會,地區與否,都值得家長同學好好把握才是!

#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.
