【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】Windlesham House School 讓學生贏在起跑線
作為升學顧問,過往經驗告訴我要到英國升學越早入學好處越多。到英國入讀Prep School(小學),不只讓孩子在私校統一入學考試(Common Entrance Examination)中有較佳表現。Prep School的學習體驗,對孩子往後人生路上,社交、語言和文化認知的發展都有莫大幫助。Windlesham House School是一個好例子。
 
Windlesham House成立於1837年,原本是英國第一間小學,至今已有180年歷史。此校鄰近West Sussex一個國家公園South Downs National Park,校園環境非常優美。1967年,Windlesham更成為IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools)第一間成員校。這個組織遍布全球,共有大約650間小學。
 
Windlesham House現時有360名學生,約有310名7-13歲小學生和50名4-7歲pre-prep學生,是個不錯的數字。學校的規模較小,因此學生和老師之間關系比較親密。無可否認,Windlesham的確是英國頂尖Prep School之一。無論是提升學生的成績,或是學生的出路方面均表現出色。
 
在校方積極推動之下,Windlesham學生參與多種課外活動,如運動、音樂和各種課堂活動。另外,學生亦可參與話劇等舞台表演,在校內的Malden Family Theatre參與演出。學校提供超過60種課外活動,選擇非常廣。如放學後有空餘時間,學生亦可在學校運動場地。
 
對Windlesham來說,鍛煉學生的成就感和團隊合作性是十分重要的一環。所以學校在年中會積極為學生舉辦各種運動錦標賽。學生即使在一場比賽中落敗,很快便可投入下一場比賽。學生自然不會沉溺在落敗的負面情緒中,很快便能重新出發為新賽事。這種不屈不撓的運動精神,能夠磨練學生的鬥志,對於往後應付學業壓力或是在職場上的挑戰亦很有幫助。
 
成績方面,Windlesham House School學生的出路不錯。去年有六位學生考入Marlborough College,四位考入傳統名校Oundle School,另外亦有學生考入Eton、Harrow和Charterhouse等英國老牌名校。
5月19號,Windlesham House School校長將會來港為家長解說該校特色。有興趣家長可致電31840168查詢。

#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.
