【SCMP Education Post:寄宿學校攻略】換了地方,同樣努力-傳統名校Charterhouse

家長們送子女出國讀書,除了想孩子在外國接受更好的教育,另一原因也希望外國讀書生活不會像香港一樣「chur」,讓孩子多一點空間抖抖氣,享受生活。然而,英國有些名校,其實也崇尚忙碌的學習生活,讀書考試不一定比香港「他條」。不是嚇大家,而是總結這三年來的經驗,有些英識同學們也有告訴我「原來英國讀書也不是一味『hea』的。」而當中的表表者,要說到Charterhouse。

 

作為傳統名校的Charterhouse,是香港家長趨之若鶩想孩子考入的名校。然而,相比起其他英國學校,Charterhouse算是非常academic。連學生自己都話:「對於不太academic的學生來說,入Charterhouse可以話是一種浪費。」

 

講到咁勁,實際上有幾勁?Charterhouse是少數名校之中同時提供IGCSEs、Pre-U和IB的。而每個範疇成績都十分傑出:被視為難度較一般GCSE高的ICSE,2016年A*-A都有76%;Cambridge Pre-U Distinction有58%;IB Diploma Programme也有80%同學取得6/7分的高分數。能夠在非主流的考試方式中取得如此卓越的成績,Charterhouse的實力確實非同小可。



除了注重學術成績,Charterhouse也重視培育學生全人,從其運動和課外活動的全面性可見一斑。與傳統寄宿名校不同,Charterhouse並非典型的「Rugby School」,也重視足球發展,且給予同學大量選擇,讓他們可以在學術以外發展個人所長,對個人成長有著相輔相乘的作用。

 

Charterhouse「同樣努力」的地方,還有藝術、音樂方面。校方規定,同學們在每個學期均需參與最少三項「cultural events」。當中不少同學都會選擇音樂和演藝,並在舍際比賽中和其他同學互相切磋,爭取獎項。

 

當然,話雖要同樣要努力才有成就,但Charterhouse的教學不會令學生如在香港讀書一般的高壓。難怪即使仍然是讀得辛苦,也有一大班英識教育家長成為其支持者。

#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.
