【Oh!爸媽】霍格華茲的現實藍本— Fettes College

有蘇格蘭Eton之稱的Fettes College並非浪得虛名,自1870以來培育了不少世界知名的政治家、經濟學家、企業家等等,包括2015年諾貝爾經濟獎得主及前英國首相貝理雅。優秀的成績加上充滿氣派的校園建築,確實不難理解這間傳統寄宿學校如此受歡迎。

Fettes College是蘇格蘭的老牌貴族男女校。該校於1870年成立,直至1970年才開始招收女生,逐漸由傳統男校轉型成為男女校。學校接近八成學生為英國本地人,過半數為蘇格蘭人。而國際生則只有百分之十,比例較少。

Fettes College有147年歷史。

 

Fettes校園佔地90英畝,位處愛丁堡中心。Fettes的主教學大樓設計融合了法國哥德式古堡與十九世紀蘇格蘭城堡的建築元素。當你首次踏足Fettes College,定會被學校的宏偉建築震懾。Fettes於1870年建成,至今已在蘇格蘭屹立近150年,遠會讓人誤會是愛丁堡古堡。就連作家JK Rowling也是受Fettes College的建築啟發,成為小說Harry Potter中的Hogwarts魔法學院。當年JK Rowling在愛丁堡市中心的咖啡店The Elephant House完成了第一、二集小說,而小說最後一集亦是在愛丁堡完成,可見這地方與Hogwarts極有淵源。Fettes College是愛丁堡最具氣派的宿校,距離咖啡店只有20分鐘車程,因此JK Rowling在構想Hogwarts時,自然想到以Fettes為藍本。

學校設有多項球類活動。

 

除了有過百年的教學大樓,最近Fettes College斥資一千萬英鎊建學校立的全新Spens Building,並已在去年開始啟用。大樓採用現代化設計,內裏有25間課室、雙層art studio、藝術歷史及音樂學校等,以配合學生需要。另外,學生亦可在遼闊的草地上參與各種球類活動、射擊、攀石等等,選擇甚多。

 

Fettes College採用英國教育學制,學生可選擇A Level、IB 或GCSE,不用報考蘇格蘭學制的考試。去年A Level考獲A*-B 的學生達七成,另外GCSE亦有超過七成學生考得A*-B。

擁有如此優厚條件及理想的公開試成績,難怪Fettes College學位如此搶手,尤其Sixth Form學位更加是五人爭奪一個學位。不過Fettes College取錄學生的條件並不只在於成績。記得Fettes學校代表曾跟我說過,全A學生固然好,但學校亦同樣重視學生的毅力以及對自己理想的追求。若想讓子女入讀這間不凡的蘇格蘭宿校,建議最少提早一年找升學顧問安排申請入學。

#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.
