【信報:寄宿學校攻略】ISC為私校闢謠
想到英國升學,坊間關於英國寄宿學校及私立學校可參考的資料不勝枚舉,不過要論權威性,就不得不提ISC這個大名。ISC全名為Independent Schools Council,他們每年都會就英國的私立學校進行大型調查,並發表極為詳盡的報道,對於有意負笈英國的人士,是相當具參考價值的資訊。
 
以即將過去的2016年為例,ISC便在年頭深入調查了一千二百多間英國私立學校。在這英國面臨巨變的一年,坊間亦曾有流言指英國私立學校同樣面對前所未見的危機,不少學校有倒閉關門大吉之虞。然而ISC的調查卻發現,英國私立學校的學生人數卻是自1974有紀錄以來的新高,而且種種數據都顯示,英國私立學校的發展非常穩健強勁,流言蜚語原來根本毫無根據。
 
ISC發現,英國私立學校發展蓬勃,可以體現在其學生的優異公開試成績之上。2015年ISC屬下的私立學校,學生在GCSE的平均成績是兩個A*及七個A。此外,私立學校在A level考試中有過半數獲A*或A的等級,若以全英國所有學校合計,僅得四分一有如此佳績。假如按每個科目得分計算,在英國排名頭100位的學校內,84間是ISC私立學校。
 
當然,殼實成績並不是私立學校成功的唯一指標。調查還發現,私立學校學生普遍在課室以外,亦享有非常廣闊的學習機會,而且大部分學校對學生的日常培育都非常專業及嚴謹,看重同學們軟技能的栽培。數字清楚顯示,比起公立學校的學生,英國私立學生參與的體育活動多近一倍,且大多數私校更將個性培養列入正規教育範疇之內。
 
私校學費升幅低 
對於有意將子女送往英國私立學校留學的家長,ISC今年的報告也帶來非常實際的好消息,就是私立學校的學費在2016年升幅是1994年來最少的,但私立學校為學生所提供的經濟資助及獎學金,卻是升幅最大的一年。換言之,家長可以在錫住荷包的情況下,讓子女享受極具質素保障的優質教育。難怪此報告一出,各種「英私立學校危機重重」的危言聳聽傳聞都不攻自破,更加為廣大家長及學生對入讀英國私立學校打下了一支強心針。

#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.
