【南早教育網:寄宿學校攻略】 南部非典型名校Dauntsey's School

數到英國名校區,非南部莫屬。眾多名校當中,特別想提Dauntsey’s School。除了因為歌神陳奕迅是校友外,亦因為Dauntsey’s 有著非典型教學理念。

 

自2012年校長Mr. Mark Lascelles上任後,「快學樂習」成為Dauntsey’s的最大教育方針,孩子於自由環境中成長,對思想甚有裨益。然而,不催谷成績的學習,令學校作出了相對的「犧牲」,使Dauntsey’s 在云云南部名校之中成為「非典型」。


Dauntsey’s School校長Mr. Mark Lascelles



Dauntsey’s 主張自學,提供大量非主流學科,讓學生自由選科,乘機激發求知欲,啟發自學而非填鴨。例如木工、心理學、舞台表演、音樂科技等,確保有不同興趣的學生,都能在擅長的領域發光發亮。

 

為貫徹快樂學習的原則,校長Mark親力親為,每朝早於校門口迎接校車到來,與每位學生打招待,讓學生感受學校關顧的溫暖。家長們亦言,校長Mark形象親切、平易近人,尊重每位學生提出的意見,讓學生和學校一同進步成長。

 

而最快樂的,莫過於學校有艘寶船,名為Jolie Brise,每年暑假會接送學生遊歷歐洲各國,促進文化交流,帶領學生見識世界。早年探訪Dauntsey’s 時,有幸乘坐Jolie Brise,由學校航海會同學領航,揚帆出海,邊航海邊講歷史文化,何其威風!

當然,快樂學習也有代價。2015年,Dauntsey’s的GCSE A*-A比例為76.6%,而A-Level A*-A則有50.9%,雖然成績中上,但比起同為南部的其他名校卻稍為遜色。然而,數字上Dauntsey’s成績雖非最亮麗,畢業生出路(University Destination)卻甚有保證。2015年畢業生中就有六位考入牛津劍橋,而大部份其他學生都入讀了英國頂尖大學,所以Dauntsey’s實力有保證,家長不必擔心。

 

真正名校,不在於有多少畢業生入牛劍、校園有多宏偉。最重要,能否讓學生寓學於樂,對知識有渴求、對思想有啟發。Dauntsey’s School正有此點石成金的能耐,難怪出了個歌神,將英國教育帶回香港發光發亮!

#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.
