【SCMP Education Post:Boarding Insider】Three Woodard Schools to set your pulse racing

Young Hong Kong learners deserve to flourish as human beings within nurturing communities. Such surroundings can be found at independent schools across the length and breadth of Great Britain, but no more so than at Woodard Incorporated Schools where high quality education is provided to everyone in an actively Christian environment …

 

Before we look at the credentials and values of Woodard Schools let me briefly pay homage to Nathaniel Woodard, the Church of England Priest whose principles went on to inspire the founding of eleven schools and also The Woodard Corporation. Nathaniel graduated from Oxford in 1840, though he was not especially an outstanding scholar. However, his organisational skills and ability to attract funds helped to realise his vision for combining high-quality public school education for the middle classes with Anglican teaching – and all at a reasonable cost.

 

Woodard Schools share many defining characteristics, not least their desire to provide education to students of all faiths and of none. With the belief that each person is of sacred value, Woodard Schools encourage pupils to develop a moral framework and show commitment to advancing their moral character.

 

As with many independent schools, a Woodard education is one which is student-centred and holistic. Hong Kong parents can also be assured that pastoral care is of the highest order and provided with each student’s personal circumstances firmly in mind.

 

With the aforementioned characteristics of Woodard Schools in mind, let us look at three Woodard Schools which are worthy of attention:

 

Lancing College

Lancing College educates boys and girls from 13 to 18. It is majestically situated high above The South Downs, one of the most stunning stretches of scenery in Great Britain, and just a few miles off the South Coast. The famous seaside town of Brighton is just a short ten-mile drive east of Lancing College.

 

Lancing stands out owing to its belief in a broad and balanced curriculum. This is reflected by the hefty number of students which apply to art school, drama colleges and music conservatoires upon leaving the College. The Music School, in particular, thrives. Each week some 250-300 lessons take place, covering such areas as singing and composition, while visiting tutors add an extra dimension to the Music School’s rock solid operations.

 

Exciting projects, such as The Malawi Expedition and the Lancing College Farm Project, ensure that students can really a make difference where it matters.

 

Overall, Lancing College has a more relaxed feel to it and very much encourages pupils to be themselves. Individuality and not being afraid to show off talents are part and parcel of life at Lancing.

 

King’s College, Taunton

King’s College is co-educational boarding and day school for 13 to 18 year olds, situated in Taunton - the county town of Somerset.

 

King’s Taunton provides a constant and steady stream of good results every year, though performance is not quite on a par with some of the more academic independent schools. That said, King’s award-winning design and technology department, as well as buzzing art, music and drama departments, offer opportunities to Hong Kong students who have a more creative streak.

 

Facilities are sound and continue to improve. King’s has the finest concert hall in the town in its own Chapel. It can hold up to 400 people. The school’s Amphitheatre is also a sight to behold and serves as a useful outdoor classroom and meeting space for pupils.

 

Sports are strong, while there is always a lot going on in an outdoors sense. The Ten Tors challenge for instance takes place every May and demands pupils to take part in an expedition over Dartmoor. Key skills such as planning, endurance, teamwork and navigation are tested and honed.

 

Ellesmere College

Located in the market town of Ellesmere in rural northern Shropshire, Ellesmere College provides world-class co-educational schooling for ages 7 to 18.

 

With echoes of Oxford University in its buildings – neat precise quads, squares of grass with keep off signs – Ellesmere is an attractive, if somewhat formative introduction to the British independent school system.

 

Let us focus here on the 13-16 Middle School. Sidestepping the usual fury about GCSE results, Ellesmere College does so much more for its pupils than prepare them for exams. Its Leadership and Entrepreneurship programme is flourishing, as is the Academic Enrichment programme which incorporates extension work in academic subjects as well as story writing competitions, to name but a few activities.

 

Co-curricular pursuits are varied and include expeditions around the globe and The Monduli Green Project in Tanzania, designed to improve for facilities for young children.

 

All in all, the inclusive approach which Woodard Schools take means that no student is left out and everyone is made to feel part of each school’s thriving community.

#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。
