【Oh!爸媽】強調全人教育的名校 Uppingham School

相信對英國升學有興趣的家長同學們,對Uppingham School的名字都不會太陌生。曾經有家長問過:「Uppingham School成績不算非常傑出,A-Level A*-A約四成,何解你們英識總會推介這所學校?」答案很簡單:全人教育。

 

全人教育四字,可能你也聽得膩了。不過Uppingham School和一般學校在全人教育的approach上有所不同的,在於不是「做得到全人教育」,而是「做得好全人教育」。此話何解?我們從不同的aspects去剖析。

第一當然在於學術成績。2016年A-Level A*-A有44.9%、GCSE A*-A則有67.5%。相比起Badminton、Concord等學校稍為遜色。不過天使在細節,Uppingham School在不同學科上對同學的照顧十分全面。歷史、宗教、政治等學科深受同學喜愛;學校新建成的實驗室,讓同學更能善用科學堂的時間做實驗和寫報告。學校共提供了29個A-Level學科讓同學選擇,選擇之多是英國數一數二的。

 

其次就是活動。運動方面,Uppingham School當然有提供多種傳統寄宿學校的運動,而學校比較重視文化藝術方面的活動,例如音樂和演藝。音樂方面,引用Uppingham School家長的一句:「幾乎每所英國寄宿校都說自己的音樂出色,但Uppingham School的音樂真的是非常出色。」歌詠團、管弦樂團等都非常selective,訓練也極為嚴格。樂隊們年中也會巡迴英國和世界各地進行演出,實力達職業水平。

 

Uppingham School大部分同學都在學校中寄宿,日校學生只佔少數。英國The Good School Guide的編輯誠言,走進Uppingham 的宿舍,男生和女生們都好有個性,非常bright和有熱誠。學生予人感覺成熟而且對新事物和學習充滿好奇心。

 

總括而言,Uppingham School所強調的全人,並非單單是甚麼都要學,全天候發展才能這麼簡單。學校更重視的,是從多方面的活動中啟發同學對事物的好奇心,並藉此反倒提升他們的學習水平,令全人教育不止做得到,更要做得好。這種對知識的追求,是Uppingham School學生獨有的,也是英識教育的各位家長值得好好留意的地方。

#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.
