【信報】2018 A Level冠亞軍學校淵源深

英國A Level上星期放榜,今年全英國的平均成績比往年低,神奇四校之一的Cardiff Sixth Form College (CSFC)繼續獨佔鰲頭,神話得以延續。可是多年來九成以上學生取A*-A的紀錄今年首次跌穿,只有88.4%。這還不止,身後更有個來勢洶洶的對手,排第二的Oxford International College (OIC) 只有28人應考,A*-A的比例卻有突飛猛進的83.50%,對CSFC構成不容忽視的威脅。

 

CSFCOIC2018年英國A Level排名榜首爭峰,看官,你可看出了箇中端倪?

 

CSFCOIC兩校關係千絲萬縷,不解之緣結在一個名字: Yasmin Sarwar Yasmin去年走馬上任OICChief Education Officer,她挾的另一身份,就是CSFC的創辦人。CSFC是她十多年前由補習社做起,一手打造成全英首屈一指的預科學校。Yasmin 本人更在前英揆手上取得英國最佳教師奬,成為教育界的傳奇。

 

Yasmin創立的CSFC,與OIC屬同一教育集團。OIC原名正是CSFC Oxford 合作分校,不過它更似是CSFC的第二梯隊。成績好的學生,會直升去CSFC,不達要求的,就留在OIC。兩校以此形式運作了近兩年。後來Yasmin CSFC 的新買家意見不合,毅然離開自己創辦的學校,去了二線的OIC重頭開始。不料接手不夠一年,OIC來個鯉躍龍門,首次躋身排名榜,更加力壓CSFC

 

整件事的發展,不難令人聯想到Steve Jobs。現在兩校在A Level排名榜上龍爭虎鬥,主角Yasmin會否像Steve Jobs般凱旋回歸,定還是會如溏心風暴式般由OIC趕過CSFC,我們旁觀者只能買定花生,等一齣好戲上演。

#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.
