【Oh!爸媽】倫敦名校Dulwich College

地理位置是選擇英國學校的一大關鍵考慮因素。尤其是倫敦,對家長來說更是個Dilemma。一方面,大城市生活與香港相似,令學生容易適應。另一方面,五光十色的城市生活卻令家長們擔心同學們會學壞。如果你正是這類家長,別擔心,Dulwich College正好滿足你的需要。

 

Dulwich有接近四百年的歷史,是倫敦南面的一所名牌男校。學校規模龐大,約有一千五百名學生。位置就近倫敦市中心,無論家長前往探望子女還是學生週末需要外出購買日常用品都非常方便。雖然位處繁忙的城市之中,但Dulwich College絕對可以用地產金句「旺中帶靜」去形容。學校四周綠草如茵、風景明媚,同時坐擁12個欖球場和10個標準英式足球場,與「城市學校必是細校」和「城市學校必然又嘈又多塵」的傳統想法剛好相反。

 

Dulwich校長Dr Spence明言學校是「an academically selective independent boys’ school」,對於成績尤其著重。學校希望透過具啟發性的教育方式,培養學生對事物的興趣和提高求知慾,讓學生走上真正「學者」(Scholar)之路,以增進知識為前提去學習。亦因如此,學校成績傑出,2016年A-Level A*-A有61.4%,GCSE A*-A則有85.3%,足證Dulwich的教學方針成校甚高。

 

雖然成績是Dulwich的重點培訓之一,學校的運動也不能忽視。正如上面所說,Dulwich校園有12個欖球場和10個英式足球場,亦有8個板球場、泳池等的設施,讓學生盡顯運動細胞。一般英國學校有的運動Dulwich都有,例如曲棍球、田徑、籃球、划艇等,學生一定不會怕悶。

 

然而,有一點需要注意的,是Dulwich College的寄宿生比例較低,全校約有140名學生選擇校內寄宿。學校就近倫敦,本地學生在城市內住宿也是可以理解的。Dulwich的宿生主要是來自世界各地的國際學生,這種狀況可謂雙刃劍,有利有弊。希望較投入享受寄宿生活,和吸收英國文化的學生可能會覺得Dulwich不是最好的地方,不過,與來自多國學生互相交流,則是考入大學之前的一個熱身。

 

說到底,即使Dulwich College能彌補一般城市學校規模較小、成績不突出的缺點,學校寄宿生比例較少的情況也令不少家長卻步。我自己對於Dulwich也有不少好感,適逢學校十月來港辦講座,各位家長不妨報名參加,親身到場了解學校是否適合。

#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.
