【SCMP Education Post:寄宿學校攻略】純樸踏實的Cheltenham College

Cheltenham College對於我有非常特殊的意義,可以話沒有Cheltenham College就不會有英識教育。還在國際學校任教時,我就曾經和學生一起到過Cheltenham參加遊學團,在裡面住過兩星期。亦因為學校給我的Impression,尤其是踏實的教育方針和純樸的學風,啟發到我踏出開創英國升學事業的第一步。希望將透過Cheltenham College而感受到的英國教育精華,帶給香港學生。

憶起以前在Cheltenham College帶遊學團的日子,最令我印象深刻的是區內寧靜和平的氣氛,像是香港的跑馬地,有一種與世隔絕而靜中帶旺的感覺。就算是週末帶著十個八個小朋友出town ( 其實湊細路是我的弱項 ),都覺得好安全,這就是Cheltenham。

Cheltenham也是英國數一數二的名校區,Cheltenham College也是云云著名學校之一。除了中學,Cheltenham College也有Prep School,其教學大原則在於一個字-Inclusion。即是透過學校大大小小的活動,運動有分為Band A至E,歌詠隊也是「open for all」的。學校藉此協助學生盡快融入英國學校的生活,不論是本地生還是國際生都能盡快投入英國教育環境,成為True-British。


雖然也有Prep的學生升讀Marlborough、Harrow、CLC等名校,但主要畢業生還是會升讀Cheltenham College。原因不難理解,因為Cheltenham無論在讀書氣氛、全人教育和個人成長都做到十足的好。


先談成績。Cheltenham 2016年A-Level A*-A有46%,GCSE A*-A有71%,成績算是相當不錯。尤其在同區還有Cheltenham Ladies’ College等名校 ( 雖然不在League Table上 ) 的情況下,Cheltenham College能夠維持穩定的成績表現,絕對為家長們打了一枝強心針。


Cheltenham College強項運動是檻球、曲棍球、板球、網球,連比較傳統和罕見的馬球 ( Polo ) 都一應俱全。學校亦非常重視對學生在運動方面的培訓,令他們有機會出戰地區級甚至國家級的比賽,英識教育的past student中也有不少是代表Cheltenham College出賽的呢!


我個人認為,Cheltenham 對於家長和學生們,最大的吸引力在於整體學習的氣氛。據家長所說,Cheltenham學生「are very down-to-earth」而且「don’t have to grow up too fast」。學生有充分的空間和自由度尋覓自我發展方向,也踏實地為自己的學業、前途作打算。最令我印象深刻 ( 而英識教育的同事也常提起的 ) 是一位家長對Cheltenham College的意見:「It’s not a London school.」指學生們有禮而自信,性格低調沉穩,予人踏實正直的感覺,正是香港學生們最值得自豪的個人質素。


如果家長們希望送子女去一些比較恬靜的Town School,或是希望孩子在簡樸的環境下成長,Cheltenham College將是佳選。

#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.
