【南早教育網:寄宿學校攻略】跨越半世紀的傳統宿校 Berkhamsted School
久不久會有家長來英識教育,想找接近倫敦的傳統寄宿學校。其實除了Harrow、Dulwich等名氣較大的學校之外,London附近亦有不少值得推薦的傳統學校,Berkhamsted School就是其中之一。
Berkhamsted School早在1541年創立,至今已近半個世紀,是典型的英國寄宿學校。這間HMC學校距離London只有50分鐘車程,交通便捷。Berkhamsted School是英國少數採用鑽石形學制的傳統寄宿學校。何謂鑽石形學制?十一歲以下的學生是男女同校上課,而11至16歲學生則分開男女上課,直到Sixth Form才再同校上課。即使如此,學生之間關係非常密切,國際生也絕對可輕鬆融入Berkhamsted 的校園生活。
Berkhamsted開放不少A Level科目以學生選擇,合共有27科,當中包括古典文化研究、社會學、舞台研究、宗教研究等等。學生可按個人興趣報考真正喜歡的科目。Berkhamsted公開考試成績表現優秀,今年更有八名學生獲牛津、劍橋取錄,是「實力型」學校。
Berkhamsted的課外活動繁多,校方提供不少資源培訓學生。學校游泳隊及曲棍球水準非常高,近年更有學生贏得全國lacrosse冠軍。學校氣氛融洽,舊生大多對母校都很歸屬感,不時都會回校跟師弟妹練習和切磋。這是Berkhamsted的獨有文化之一。學校規模不少,有超過千名學生,不過國際寄宿生只有約50位。不少學生由prep school開始讀上sixth form,整間學校就像Hertfordshire一個小社區。
Berkhamsted學生非常熱衷於課外活動,超過半數學生選擇上唱歌或樂器班。學生新增的sports pavillion為學生提供更多運動選擇,包括壁球、瑜伽、羽毛球和重量訓練等。每年Berkhamsted School都會舉行才藝比賽,並為有需要人士籌款,將自己所學所得回饋社會。另外,Berkhansted學生特別喜愛話劇,宿舍之間不時都會舉辦話劇比賽,不少學生亦在GCSE選修話劇。
學校提供每年都會選出Young Musician of the Year,鼓勵學生在追求學業成績之餘亦能發展自己的才藝。
Berkhamsted School彷如Hertfordshire一個小社區,且有他們獨有一套教學理念。若想讓同學感受原汁原味的寄宿生活,又不想太過偏離英國首都,此校確實是不錯之選。​

#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.
