【南華早報教育網:寄宿學校攻略】真正的「全人」-King's School Canterbury

「全人教育」四字,相信為人父母的你們聽到麻目。好多人以為,只要學校不把補習班、功課輔導班塞滿學生的時間表,讓他們學下樂器做下運動就叫做「全人」。英國的King’s School, Canterbury就是其中一所學校,能夠真真正正貫徹「全人教育」的真義,甚至連一般英國學校都未必做到。


先談家長最關心的成績。基本上,選King’s School Canterbury都不必擔心。2016 GCSE A*-A有76.1%,A-Level單單A*已有22.9%,遠多於一般學校能夠做到的數字。更加「實際」的數字在於畢業生的去向:2016年16人考入了劍橋,7人牛津,22人Edinburgh,12人Durham,也有Warwick、UCL、Imperial等名校。

King’s School Canterbury不遺餘力推動學生運動發展。全部學生都有體育活動不在話下,而絕大部分更會代表學校出席一些校際比賽,為學校爭光。體育項目當中,尤以劍擊、曲棍球、欖球、射擊、滑雪和乒乓球表現出色,以上項目均有國家級運動代表。憑藉這種對運動的推動,令King’s School出產過不少奧運選手,例如Fran Houghton。


特別想提King’s School演藝方面的表現。每年,學生們都會參與大大小小的舞台劇演出,將經典的劇本重現舞台:A Comedy of Errors, The Merchant of Venice, 以及永恆經典Romeo & Juliet等。有些甚至是戶外演出,在華麗的自然景色撘成的報置下,更別有一番味道。


音樂也是學校的重點項目之一。King’s School有不少的樂團,jazz club更是廣受學生歡迎。大大少少的歌詠團「任君選擇」,Crypt Choir更會每年進行巡迴演唱。正如學生們所言「無論在學校的何處,總會聽到樂韻處處飄揚」。


而所謂全人的真義,正正在King’s School Canterbury展現無遺,一位家長就有如此意見:「難以想像學術成績如此理想,同學們從不停步,甚麼活動都全力參與,竟然仍有時間參加社交活動,而且每方面的表現好得不得了。」

#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.
