【南早教育網:寄宿學校攻略】南部King's Taunton彈性發展所長

英國以King's為名的寄宿學校為數不少,遍佈南部及倫敦,其中不得不提南部Taunton的King's College。當很多學校都以排名作成功指標,King's Taunton校長Mr. Richard Biggs卻反其道而行,主張學生應在成績和興趣之中取適度平衡。

 

Mr. Richard Biggs於零七年上任,甚受師生歡迎,皆因他不擺架子,且作風開明。他甚少留在校長室,而是在校園遊走,用雙眼觀察學生的學習情況和留意他們的需要,還會用心記住學生名字。在他領導下King's Taunton 學習風氣輕鬆。本人觀察所見,老師亦對教學有熱誠。學校積極鼓勵學生好好管理時間,讓他們不用在成績和興趣之間作取捨。

即使學校不看重排名,學生公開成績仍不俗。去年A-level考獲A*- A的學生超過三成,而A*- B更達六成,較全國平均成績高。為了讓學生選科更多元,學校要求GCSE學生必須選讀外語,如德語或西班牙文。該校德語成績更位列全國頭五。

 

另外,學校運動方面尤其出色,欖球隊曾在National Schools Sevens兩度奪冠。學校運動設施一流,孕育不少職業球手,如欖球手Tom Voyce 、Matthew Robinson和木球手Roger Twose。

King's College Taunton照顧寄宿生經驗豐富,是全英首間錄取香港學生的寄宿學校。寄宿生每天聚在偌大的飯廳一起用膳,關係密切。各學院不時在週末舉辦各種聯誼活動,讓本地和國際寄宿生也能輕鬆融入環境。

 

綜合而言,King's Taunton是香港外向型學生不錯之選,皆因學習壓力不大,也能有彈性空間發展所長。但要特別留意,學校截止報名日期為開學前18個月,若有意申請宜及早部署。

#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.
