【Oh!爸媽】成績至上因目標為本-Cardiff Sixth Form College

送孩子去英國讀書的家長,通常分為兩大「派別」:傳統學校派和目標為本派。前者顧名思義就是主張最傳統的英國學校教育,較為支持Gresham’s、Sedbergh這類英式學校。而後者呢,則傾向目標為本派,即是以考入名牌大學或者修讀心儀學科為目標。他們較喜歡一直提及的「神奇四校」-Cardiff Sixth FormCollege、Queen Ethelburga’s College、Concord College和Ruthin School。

 

雖然,Cardiff Sixth Form的教學方針為不少傳統學校詬病,但仍然有為數不少的國際學生支持者,更連續七年蟬聯英國A-Level排名榜榜首位置。空穴來風未必無因,有如此實力的Cardiff Sixth Form College,背後一定有不為人知的秘密。

這樣說其實也有點誇張,所謂的「秘密」,不過是Cardiff很著重目標為本-即是無論如何都想協助學生考入心儀大學的理想學科。為了達到此目的,Cardiff用盡了一切努力:由密集式的補課班,到就業指導,到面試班及寫Personal Statement應有盡有。所以,如果說Cardiff Sixth Form College是純粹以成績掛帥,也有欠公允。

 

公平一點說,成績只是其中一部分。Cardiff同時有開辦醫科課程,專為想升讀醫學院的同學們而設;亦設有牛津劍橋面試班,為同學解構在面試考入牛津劍橋時,應如何答問題以及如何思考;甚至有專科班教授撰寫Personal Statement(個人敘述),在短篇文章中句句到肉講中自己的長處,在大學面試官心中留下深刻印象。不得不提的,是Cardiff Sixth Form College特設的就業輔導,讓同學們早在考公開試前就大概知道前路該如何走,並且能夠朝著目標努力讀書進發,做好準備。

 

如此種種,都是撇開成績以外,Cardiff Sixth Form College能助學生考入名牌大學,以及廣受家長學生歡迎的原因。

 

當然,「針無兩頭利」,一天只有24小時,Cardiff同學花了很長時間在成績和考試中啄磨,犧牲了的就是一定程度的活動時間。雖然學校有不少運動設施,例如網球場、室內泳池等,但望著逼在眉捷的公開試快要殺到,同學們都沒有閒暇參加活動,反而是花更多時間準備功課和考試。

 

其實這現象也正常不過。即使在英國本土,很多同學們都會為了考入好大學而轉校就讀Cardiff Sixth Form College這一類預科書院。從另一個角度去看,CardiffSixth Form College的出現,也充分印證到英國教育的多樣性和立體-無論你想讀傳統英式學校,還是以成績為先考入大學,都總有適合你的選擇。

#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.
