【Oh!爸媽】Giggleswick School 激勵學生敢想敢作

最近跟一位英識教育家長比較英國的校網,講到英國北部Yorkshire。這個地區可謂名校雲集,不少寄宿名校都位處York。當中有一間超過500年歷史的Giggleswick School,極度提倡學生全人發展,在運動和音樂方面尤其突出。學校鼓勵學生敢想敢作,一步步朝著自己理想邁進。

Giggleswick School全校只有約400位學生,距離Manchester和Leeds大概60分鐘車程。學校非常著重學生的參與。所以即使放學後Giggleswick校園依然非常熱鬧,學生忙於參與各種課外活動。

全校有三分一學生參加Young Musician of the Year。學校提供的音樂訓練非常多元化,而且提供大量機會讓學生表演。最近二月,Giggleswick就在校園裏的劇院裏舉行Rock Concert,當晚共有24個學生單位表演,學生迴響非常正面,且氣氛熱烈。另外學校亦鼓勵學生發展創意媒體方面的才華,最近剛成立的Filmmaking Club亦在短片比賽中奪獎。

Giggleswick在運動方面亦投放不少資源。除了寄宿學校常見的運動項目,最近Giggleswick組成了一隊全新equestian team(馬術隊),請來著名教練為學生進行每週定期訓練。學校設有七個草地球場,以供學生在課餘時間進行球類訓練。Giggleswick亦特別針對校園地形,建造了一條超過1公里越野單車徑,對熱愛刺激運動的學生來說非常吸引。

除了課堂外的學習體驗,Giggleswick學術亦同樣表現突出。學校在成績增值(value added)方面屬全國頭5%,為學生的在校長Mark Turnbull的帶領下,Giggleswick的公開考試成績近年表現不俗,2016年A Level有近七成學生考獲A*-B。

Giggleswick校長Mark Turnbull亦曾表示:「身為教育工作者,學校有責任為學生未來多想一步。我們明白教育不應只流於課本上的知識,還要走出課堂去吸收經驗驗和多作嘗試。我們Giggleswick就正正體現了這種私立學校的價值觀。」

Giggleswick School雖然已有近五個世紀,且位處北部名校區Yorkshire。但學校一直踏實地做好教育,並且提供大量資源優化校園,讓學生能確切地向自己的夢想邁進。能做到如此貫徹始終,確實非常難得。

#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.
