【SCMP Education Post:寄宿學校攻略】蘇格蘭頂尖女校 St George's School For Girls

不少家長對女校情有獨鍾。除了能令學生專注學習,女生亦能在較少顧慮的環境中學習。除了較受英識教育家長歡迎的Wycombe Abbey、St Swithun's 等名校,其實位於愛丁堡的頂尖女校St. George's Schools for Girls亦不錯 。

 

香港人對英國的認識,大抵都是London、Manchester等熱門大城市,相對較少人會選擇愛丁堡。其實愛丁堡亦是我心目中最喜歡的英國城市之一。

 

St George's School for Girls位於愛丁堡西部,距離愛丁堡機場大概20分鐘車程。學校成立於1888年,是愛丁堡唯一以一條龍形式辦學的寄宿學校,招收2至18歲的女生。愛丁堡古典氣氛濃厚,校園內可眺望古堡,別具特色。St George's擁有三間校舍,分別是Upper School、Lower School及Junior School,容納約800名學生。經歷過不少變遷,現時St George's並行蘇格蘭及英國教育制度,學生可按需要任擇其一。



 

學校採取小班教學,為學生提供貼身的學習體驗。老師不時會帶學生走出課室學習,如透過親手種植學習生物原理。St George's School 亦致力讓學生擴闊視野,讓她們放眼世界。學校設有交換生課程 ( International Exchange Programme ),與全球不同國家的學校合作,鼓勵學生走出comfort zone,接觸新文化。高年級學生有機會前往多個國家交流五個星期,如美國、澳洲、智利、南非等,有助他們擴闊眼界。

 

雖然說St George's School是女校,但該校跟愛丁堡另一間男校Merchiston Castle School關係密切。兩校全年有不少聯校活動,如音樂會、話劇表演、運動競技和學校旅行等。他們亦會聯校進行Combined Cadet Force。

 

住宿方面,本地生與國際生各佔五成,因此香港學生可與本地生有更多交流。St George's School的低年級學生大多與四位室友同房,至於高中學生可選擇入住單人房。

 

St George's的一大特色,在於它的學習環境讓能女生能拋開固有的性別定型概念。除了語文、戲劇、藝術等被視女生強項的科目,St George's 學生的理科成績亦表現出色。該校學生熱衷於各種傳統球類運動,如lacrosse和冰球,比一般男女校的女生更活躍,非常適合好動的女生。


既然稱之為蘇格蘭頂尖女校,學校公開試成績表現理想,連續三年位列蘇格蘭私校排名榜榜首。2016年接近八成A Level學生考獲A*-B,另外Advanced Higher Level考獲A-B的學生接近九成。若想讓女兒一嚐蘇格蘭寄宿體驗,又對學校成績有要求,不妨考慮St George's School。

#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.
