【信報:寄宿學校攻略】Woodard三大名校

很多人都聽過英國Woodard Schools的名字,卻未必知其所指。Woodard Schools其實是一群隸屬於英國聖公會教派機構Woodard Foundation的學校,今時今日有小學、有中學,亦有公立、有私立。這個教會機構由牧師Nathanial Woodard 建立,他有見當時的教育只屬皇室貴族的權利,學校如Eton、Harrow這些公校,學生非富則貴,教育成了一件完全離地的事。他於是決定要創立一個辦學機構,為中產以下的普羅大眾提供讀書機會。由Nathaniel Woodard 於1848年開辦Woodard Schools的第一間學校Lancing College,至近170年後的今日,Woodard Schools是聖公會在英格蘭和威爾斯最大的學校團體,擁有23間私立學校、17間公立或私立學校作其附屬。當中要數規模最大的,是擁有超過1500名學生的The Littlehampton Academy、數最新近加入的則是2014才歸於旗下的Broadwater Manor School。

 

Woodard Schools的名字在英國響噹噹,當中不只因為屬下學校夠多,而是這些學校都以優異的品德教育,贏盡了全國的聲望。當中,尤以Ellesmere College、King’s College, Taunton,以及Abbots Bromley Schools for Girls這3間地位超凡,原因除了3間學校都是歷史悠久的第一代Woodard Schools,3校既有Woodard學校共同的優點,百多年來在不同領域又各自各精采,備受英國內外家長追捧是難免的事。

 

淑女搖籃

Abbots Bromley Schools for Girls是建校於1874年,是Woodard Schools中間首間女校,現在中六以上亦收男生,全校有近三百學生。位於Staffordshire的它擁有非一般的校園設施,馬術中心享負盛名,更有自設的世界級舞蹈學院Alkins School of Dance,難怪百多年來它成了培養氣質非凡淑女的搖籃。跟abbots Bromley Schools for Girls 相反,Ellesmere College於1879年開校時是男校,今天則變成男女校。Ellesmere很重視學生的身心成長,校園氣氛歡樂融洽。學校不單在戲劇、音樂、藝術及體育成績驕人,學術亦一樣出色,有近85%學生能夠考上第一志願大學。

 

至於位於Somerset的King’s College, Taunton歷史比起Ellesmere College短一年,但威水史卻不遑多讓。學校曾出過的舊生更有諾貝爾物理獎得主Antony Hewish、企業家Ted Nash、軍事歷史學家John Keegan。該校去年A-Level的成績亦相當可觀。

 

這3間Woodard學校的校長於10月曾親臨香港參與升學活動,讓一眾家長深入認識Woodard Schools這三大百年名校。

#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.
