【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】百年老校Eastbourne及Clifton 非一般寄宿體驗

臨近2017年最後入學限期,不少香港家長都急着為子女作最後衝刺,希望能考入心儀學校。今次跟大家介紹兩間近年越來越受家長歡迎的英國寄宿學校,讓大家簡單了解兩間學校的教育質素和資源配套,和他們受歡迎的秘密。

第一間學校,是位於英國南部近海的Eastbourne College。該校歷史悠久,早在1867年成立,屬英國頂尖男女校。無論GCSE或Alevel成績均在全國名列前茅。學校藝術方面尤其出色,校園各處掛滿了學生的作品。去年修讀藝術的A Level學生全數考獲A*- A,表現極為出眾。另外,學校的數學、科學和人文學科都非常受歡迎。學校亦會提供Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)和領袖課程,選擇非常豐富。

除了學術成績,我覺得Eastbourne另一過人之處在於他們對學生體貼入微,老師對每位學生的喜好和各方面的能力都瞭如指掌。無論學生的學業水平如何,校方都會盡他們所能給予適當的支持,是一間以學生為本的好學校。

另一間學校Clifton College跟Eastbourne College成立年份非常接近,至今已有154年歷史。學校位處Bristol近郊地區,景色非常優美,對香港學生而言會是難忘的學習體驗。

Clifton學生選科自由度極高,學校提供的GCSE及A level學科多達30種。學校的音樂和話劇實力非凡,不少學生均獲英國頂尖藝術學校取錄,如 Royal Academy of Music、 Royal College of Music、the Guildhall、London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art、 Royal Academy of Dramatic Art等等。

雖說Clifton College有150多年歷史,但該校力求與時代接軌。你會在Clifton看到二級保護文物建築,亦會看到現代化的教學大樓和體育設施。該校的體育設備屬全國學校數一數二,學校提供攀山、野外求生和獨木舟等多元化的活動。另外Clifton College​亦有獨立劇院,對熱愛表演藝術的學生而言非常吸引。

如果你的孩子特別喜歡藝術或運動,又想感受英國傳統寄宿學校的生活,百年老校Eastborne College與Clifton College確實是理想之選。

#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.
