【Oh!爸媽】讀一年GCSE在學霸名校霸位

愈來愈多家長明白留學英國要「有仔(或女)趁嫰送」的道理,於是在同學仔中一中二時已經開始籌謀,有數字顯示,現在熱門出國年齡女同學是十一歲,男孩子則是十二、三歲,但近年有更年輕化的趨勢。不少家長分享心得,都指出趁同學仔年紀細送去英國,揀學校大可不理學校排名,學術成績是其次,重點是要小朋友讀書讀得開心,培養出學習的興趣和熱忱,同時在這求學階段鍛練個性建立性格。尤其是,時下高踞排名榜的學校,都充斥中國及俄羅斯學生,競爭激烈,並不是開心學習的寶天福地。同學仔如果年紀尚細,選擇讀傳統寄宿學校最是值得推介。

 

至於年紀較大的同學,近年很多家長選擇在子女完成GCSE後,即中學的最後一年來叩Cardiff Sixth Form College、Concord,或 Oxford International College這類學校的門。我常常告誡各方家長,這屬於藝高人膽大的做法,事關這一類頂尖學霸型學校,最後一年的學位簡直是爭崩頭,尤其近年多了中國內地學生的競爭,據講有時六七十人去考也只有廿五人爭到一席位,萬一臨A Level前不幸失諸交臂,就會落得陣腳大亂的下場。

 

「Samuel,想仔女快人一步,達成入這些學霸型學校考A Level的理想,有冇計諗?」有家長苦惱地問。

 

計仔一定有。例如Cardiff Sixth Form College (CSFC)向來是不少家長及同學仔讀A Level夢寐以求的學校。它的學霸地位,在英國是不容爭議的。此校被稱為英國神奇四校之一,全因它由一間小小補習社變成英國排名榜獨佔鰲頭的高中,BBC更為它冠以「全英最有腦學校」的美譽,其傳奇至今仍是全英國教育界的佳話。香港的家長如想阿仔阿女坐定粒六入到這間「奪A工廠」考A Level,或者同學讀到中四覺得讀上去有難度,又或者在香港被中文或通識嚇窒,令入醫科、法律系機會率微乎其微,就可以考慮入CSFC先讀一年GCSE課程,然後原校直升A Level,這樣就可以繞過與英國本地轉校生正面交鋒,也避過與香港名牌直資學校尖子的對壘。

 

CSFC這一年制GCSE課程將於今年九月首度推出,目標學生是年齡介乎十五至十六歲的同學,內容特別適合國際學生。同學仔可以根據他們的學術能力及英語水平,選修六至九個GCSE科目。CSFC學業成績全英稱冠,居功至偉的除了卓越的師資和小班教學制度,還多得校方用西方那套來激發學生思考空間,卻配合東方賞罰分明、重操行講紀律的一套,將東西方的教育精髓融匯貫通。新鮮出爐的一年制GCSE課程,既然掛有CSFC的金漆招牌,自然也會秉承學校一貫的致勝策略,教育質素絕對有信心保證。

 

校方為了迎接一年制GCSE課程的新同學,新改建的宿舍是特別為迎合十六歲以下學生而設,此外也會有針對他們需要的牧養計劃、功課輔導等服務。GCSE學生在CSFC也享有其他同學一樣的福利和權利,可善用學校的各種文娛體育及資訊科技設施,各學會、比賽、旅行等不同活動亦歡迎他們的踴躍參與。作為全校最新又最年輕的成員,一年制GCSE的同學必定得到校方最周全妥善的照顧。

 

至於在CSFC原校升A Level的初衷,一年制GCSE課程同學想霸定位當然有著數,不過也必須達到學校最基本要求。萬一最終touch wood未能做到,CSFC背後Dukes Education旗下的三間學校Rochester Independent College、Earlscliffe 及Fine Arts College 也將會為同學提供學位繼續學業,所以絕對沒有吉手而回的後顧之憂。如要查詢CSFC一年GSCE的收生要求,可致電61075507或瀏覽我的Facebook專頁www.facebook.com/ukchitchat索取更多有關資訊。

#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.
