【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】一分耕耘一分收穫的Wycombe Abbey School

英國名校一向給人一種「藍血」的感覺。無論是學生出身顯赫,還是因為特別「醒目」擠身資優行列的,總令人覺得難以觸及,兼且和一般學生有著一條清晰的界線。唯獨有一些,能夠晉身英國頂尖寄宿學校之列,全憑學生自己過人的努力和力爭上游的精神。其中一所,就是全部英識教育家長,甚至香港家長都會聽過的女校-Wycombe Abbey School。 


Wycombe Abbey作為全英國聞名的頂尖女校,學生自然有一種超然的氣場。根據英國Good School Guide所言,遊走在Wycombe Abbey School,發覺那裏的學生步伐很快,十分忙碌,每分每秒都在趕緊學習進度,像是「用日本模式運作的銀行」。這種辛勤的回報,自然是非常傑出的學業表現。 



2016年,Wycombe Abbey A-Level A*-A高達85.7%,GCSE則有97.39%,可以用高得誇張去形容,畢業生的大學去向亦強得「嚇死你」。2015/16年度中,有十一位同學考入劍橋、十位牛津、四位UCL,Russell Group 成員Durham、Edinburgh、Exeter等更是不計其數。甚至有學生決定離開英國,並成功考入世界一流大學如美國UCLA、MIT和哥倫比亞大學等。 



雖然講到Wycombe Abbey女生忙碌到爆錶,但學校生活當然不只有學術一面。師生們的認真態度,亦體現於種種活動之中。音樂是Wycombe Abbey School引以自豪的範疇之一,除了大量練習室和職業級數的演奏廳讓學生在校內練習之外,更有數名學生會在星期六到倫敦的音樂學院上課,提升音樂造詣。 



戲劇在Wycombe Abbey同樣扮演重要角色。學校每年有十四個大型演出,每年亦有近三份一女生們會透過LAMDA考試,考入National Youth Theatre。 


總括而言,Wycombe Abbey之所以成功,成為英識家長心目中的「神級」女校,並不單單因為傳統上掛上名校、貴族校之名。更重要的,是學校如何透過教育和培養女生的個人潛質,在默默努力之後得到成果。英國名校有很多,當中Wycombe Abbey School,肯定是「一分耕耘,一分收穫」的表表者。

#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.
