【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】牛津區讀書哪所學校好?

「基於個人原因,我想十二歲的兒子在牛津區讀書。Mabel你有學校推介給我嗎?」

說到牛津的寄宿學校,Abingdon和St. Edward’s Oxford即時浮現在我腦海。

Abingdon位於牛津南面約十英里的全男校,提供傳統GCSEs和A-Levels課程,並同時有Pre-U科目。最近,Abingdon更取消了AS Level的學科,讓學生在選科上有更大自由度,並根據自己的喜好和成績配對及組合選修科目。

Abingdon School另一大賣點,叫做「The Other Half」,指的是學校的課外活動。Abingdon的課外活動極為多元化,有超過一百種,甚至會邀請正在冒起的英國影視紅星、歌手、演員和記者等參與其中。

學校對同學的關顧也十分貼心。例如會為每位同學提供六年期的職業導向,讓他們更了解自己的前路,並作最佳準備。

除了Abingdon School,St Edward’s Oxford也是牛津區內值得一提的學校。

13-18歲的同學們在St Edward’s可以感受一下廣受推崇的full boarding全寄宿,而且St Edward's的海外留學生數目亦不多。學校最有名的是其多元化全人教育,以及培育學生的學術技巧、批判思考、辯論才能、溝通能力以及團隊合作精神。

首年入讀St Edward’s的學生(稱之為shell year)會在上述的範疇有所培訓,同時亦有機會感受一些英國地道文化活動,例如粘土射擊(clay pigeon shooting)等,讓同學們互相認識,在第一年時已培養出深厚情誼。所以香港的好動男生們一定會很快適應到St Edward’s的生活。

除了學校,其實於牛津區及近郊也有一大堆景點,相信寄宿學校學生也會樂在其中。例如野生動物園、牛津本地佳餚、Cotswolds的美景、游湖和四出游走鄉間攝影,都是住在牛津獨享的福利。不得不提的當然是牛津的市中心,每一次我去英國,牛津市都會給我無窮的驚喜。

總括而言,牛津的Abingdon School和St Edward’s Oxford都是值得一去的學校。

如果你的孩子快將16歲,則可以考慮St Clare’s Oxford(高校)。學校提供全球歷史最悠久的IB課程,而其優異成績亦有目共睹。St Clare’s Oxford不算是太selective的學校,成績屬中上的同學不妨考慮。

#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.
