【信報:英名校大比拼】非一般名校
在英國,富過幾代、根基雄厚的Old Money, 為子弟選擇學校,往往都會以校譽及class行先。這些可能阿爺已讀公校出身的名門望族,為了繼承家族傳統,揀學校時情傾老牌公校如伊頓、哈羅是理所當然的事。
 
至於憑較現代行業如金融、科技等領域大展鴻圖的家庭,便往往不受名氣、級數這些所綑綁,反而更重視學校有環球觸覺、富創意肯嘗新的精神,以及能提供周全的全人教育,所以對這些家庭來說,Epsom College及Oakham School這類學校就會是首選。
 
講A Level 成績,Epsom在2016年獲A*至B的學生有86%,比Oakham的43%學生得A*至A等級,稍為領先。同年IGCSE/GCSE 成績,Epsom的學生取得A*-A級的有70%。Oakham獲同等級的只有62%。兩校的公開試成績算不上頂尖,但憑藉別樹一幟的前瞻及面向國際的視野,兩校都被認定為全英最成功男女校的佼佼者。兩間學校的歷史並不算短,前者建於1855年,後者更早於1584年。
 
醫生世家
Epsom創校原意是為醫療界人士的子女提供教育,故與皇家醫學協會關係密切,學校也出了很多醫生。校方教學理念正是為社會培養有創意有承擔的人,極度重視道德價值、寬容及同理心的栽培。Epsom的獨特處在於其國際視野,儘管英國本校國際學生只佔16%,但其分校卻遠至馬來西亞。學校提供大量科目可供學生選擇,切合他們日後升學需要,而其畢業生事實都能入到世界各地的頂尖大學,尤其是以研究主導的學府。
 
至於Oakham辦學的前瞻性,就可從其lB課程可見一斑。老實說,英國辦IB辦得好的學校並不多,因為校方需要大量資源、師資、統籌工作來配合。Oakham是少數做得出色的學校。學生的表現也相當優秀,2016年在lB平均分達37.2。
 
不約而同地,兩校寄宿人數只佔全校學生的一半,可見論吸引到寄宿學生的能力,Epsom比不上附近的Charterhouse,Oakham也不及毗鄰的Oundle,但其實兩校都有一流的寄宿設施,Epsom位於風景怡人的Surrey,佔地84畝的校園多是維多利亞式建築,古意盎然風光如畫。Oakham校園更具備大型寄宿設施,宿舍達16座之多,其中兩座專為預科生而設,寄宿生都能得到充裕的空間及周全的照顧。

#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.
