【SCMP Education Post:Boarding Insider】Count your Luckley stars

Britannia StudyLink was recently the proud host to a variety of top UK schools for its third British Boarding Schools Festival. One School in attendance was Luckley House - a small and close-knit school with a reputation for excellent pastoral care, a vibrant co-curricular programme and a knack for helping international students adjust swiftly to boarding school life ...

 

Luckley House School, which is located in the historic market town of Wokingham in Berkshire, is built on the Christian foundations of love and service. Historically an all girls’ school, Luckley began the transition to becoming a co-educational school from September 2015, with boys admitted into Years 7 and 12.

 

Despite the move to coeducation, Luckley has a modest target to grow from its present cohort of 250 pupils to 300 by 2020. Therefore, the School will remain small and close-knit in nature and relations between pupils and staff are naturally excellent. During an interview with Britannia StudyLink, Desni Ennis, Marketing, Admissions and Development Manager at Luckley House School, said: “Pupils are known so well by all staff so that individual needs can be met, such as access to tailored work experience.” It is the case that care and hospitality are deeply ingrained in the Luckley ethos which allows for a seamless transition to boarding school life. I believe, therefore, that Luckley suits the profile of Hong Kong children who may initially be very shy.



An area in which Luckley truly comes into its own is the way in which the House system develops pupils’ teamwork skills, healthy competitive spirit and other soft skills. Indeed, Luckley’s House system thrives just as much as those which belong to some of the household UK boarding school names. House teams participate in a wide range of events, such as music and drama performances, and House competitions, such as the House Bake-off and the Christmas Apprentice. Luckley also holds Masterclasses on a regular basis, such as one on ‘vocalisation’ delivered by an expert in the theatre world. The School also collaborates with the London College of Fashion and sessions for boarders have taken an in-depth look into the world of fashion, leading to a Masterclass on logo design.


 

It is clear, then, that Luckley can offer its pupils abundant opportunities to develop their leadership skills. All Sixth Formers will become prefects and role models, while there are also more senior positions within the prefect system for those who are keen to develop these leadership skills. The Senior Team is responsible for organising Inter-House competitions, as well as coordinating the annual food bank charity event and the termly RAG Week, which enables students to organise parades and fundraising events to raise money for good causes. According to Desni Ennis, these leadership roles “help develop management and organisational skills, as well as the mentoring and coaching of younger students.”

 

Also worthy of a mention is Luckley’s wider co-curricular programme and the School’s role in the local community. Overseas trips are extremely popular, with South Africa, the USA and Spain (sports tour) among recent destinations. Luckley pupils also enjoy taking part in local, regional and national competitions, and prizes have been scooped in a range of areas, including the Teen Tech awards, the Royal Academy A Level art competition and Microsoft Digigirlz - a programme which also gives girls opportunities to learn about technology-based careers. Finally, Luckley pupils like to show their community spirit. They have ‘dressed the Christmas tree’ for Wokingham Town Council, participated in the Wokingham Schools’ Gardening Competition and engaged with local youth groups to enable them to use some of Luckley’s facilities.

 

Having just mentioned Microsoft Digigirlz, Microsoft has, in fact, come to play a significant part in the academic running of Luckley. In September 2016, every pupil was issued with a Microsoft Surface 3 which will be in their possession until they leave the school. Office 365 enables girls to gain access to files via while opportunities for collaboration are also increased. Luckley believes firmly in empowering pupils with technology and the school goes to great lengths to review the ICT curriculum on a regular basis.

 

Britannia StudyLink holds the view that Luckley is an innovative and very caring school which can get the best out of international pupils. The school has an impressive range of partnerships in place to ensure that Hong Kong students have the best chance of succeeding, be it in terms of character development or academically. On the academic front, a partnership with the London International Study Centre (LISC) provides a range of study options for overseas students to help them prepare for studying A Levels at Luckley House. Overall, Luckley House School is doing all the right things in all the right places and I am happy to recommend this school to Hong Kong families.

#院校分析
論名氣,Oundle 未追得上 Eton、Wycombe Abbey 等頂級名校,但學校的學術成績在英國依然名列前茅。作為傳統名校,Oundle 非常重視全人發展,為學生提供多元課餘活動選擇。學校奉行英國碩果僅存的 House Dining System,或是令香港家長趨之若鶩的一大原因。
Bromsgrove 的師生比例是一比八,比一般的寄宿學校低。此外,綜合我曾到訪的學校,此校硬件設施之完善,可入選全英設備最佳的三大校園。校方不惜工本為學生提供舒適環境,甚至收購附近的酒店改建成宿舍,令宿生有名符其實的「五星級享受」。此校極具前瞻性,是國際化的英國宿校。
Brighton College 是英國首屈一指的私校,是香港家長最愛的寄宿學校之一。 看一間學校,除了教育宗旨、多元化活動、成績之外,更要看校長的魄力。十年前,校長 Mr. Richard Cairns 成為 Brighton College 校長後,把學校由全英國接近 150 名推至首 20 名。除了在教育方針上大力推動改革之外,也為了保持學生的求知慾而非常努力,是難得的好校長。
