【Oh!爸媽】Downside School平均型英國學校

曾經有家長向我直言:「Samuel,你老是在社交平台和報章上提及Oundle School、Queen Ethelburga’s等一線名校,但我自知兒子能力未及,你有一些水平稍低的學校推介嗎?」 

 

有是有的,不過我不會認為是「水平稍低」,而是較為平均型,不算非常selective的一所學校,叫做Downside School。 

 

學校成立於1606年,有相當久遠的歷史,從其建築、外觀等都能看得出。位置於英國西南面Somerset,飽覽四周英國宜人景色,環境方面與其他較有名的學校無異。 

 

家長最關心的當然是成績方面。坦白說,Downside並不如其他Top School 一般有七、八成的A*-A的傑出表現。然而,無論在GCSE還是A-Level,Downside School多年來都能夠維持約50%的A*-A率,屬中上水平之餘,亦能保持一貫水準和表現,實屬不錯。 

 

學科方面,除了藝術、一般理科如數學和生物、語言科如古希臘文和拉丁文等,亦有較少見的科目,例如攝影、心理學、宗教研究等。如果學生興趣在於這幾科,或者想及早準備升大學時修讀這些學系,Downside也是挺適合的。 

 

作為一所平均型的英國寄宿學校,學習以外當然少不得課外活動。先在運動方面,Downside提供了一般寄宿學校都有的男女生運動,例如欖球(Rugby)、曲棍球(Hockey)、女子網球(Girl’s Netball)和Cross-Country running等,以確保學生不會為了追趕成績而忽略了運動的重要性。 

 

Downside School學生除了好動之外,亦有靜態的一面。學校在音樂和藝術等都著墨不少,年中出席區內的合唱團演出,其爵士樂隊亦會巡迴全世界舉行演出,可謂名揚國際。 

 

Downside School屬於英國較平均而非太selective的學校,如果學生學習能力和水平處於中等的話不妨考慮一下。 

 

適逢學校將於十月來港,各位同學想與Downside代表直接了解更多學校的資訊,可以致電3702 6372或電郵mabel@britannia-study.com

#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.
