什么是预备学校?(以及与预备学校有关的其他问题的答案)

什么是预备学校?预备学校是指等同于英国公办小学和中学的英国独立学校。顾名思义,预备学校的主要目的是为学生进入独立初中学或高中做准备。预备学校通常招收 11 或 13 岁以下的学生,毕业后学生会升入高中,完成英国普通中等教育证书 (GCSE) 考试后,继续学习英国高中课程 (A-Level) 预备学校是否提供寄宿?有些预备学校不提供寄宿,这些学校称为“日间学校”或“走读学校”。大多数预备学校会提供寄宿,也招收走读生,通常有多种寄宿方式可供选择,这些方式包括(因学校而异):  每周寄宿 — 学生每周上学期间寄宿在学校。他们通常周日晚上或周一早上到校,一周学习结束后回家。 三天寄宿 — 一周在校寄宿三晚。这种方式让学生享受寄宿生活,而又不用承担全日制寄宿的苦恼。 混合寄宿 — 顾名思义,这种方式可以让父母选择想让子女哪(些)天寄宿在学校。这种方式可以配合家庭或学校的一些活动,例如早晨兴趣班、体育赛事、周六学校等。 全日制寄宿 — 这种方式适合那些整个学期都寄宿在学校的学生。全日制寄宿是想要进入英国预备学校就读一学期或更长时间的留学生的理想之选。  预备学校的寄宿学生人数因学校而异,也与学校可容纳的寄宿生人数有关。大多数预备学校会招收 7 岁以上的寄宿生,其中通常还包括一部分留学生。普遍的趋势是,越来越多的学生在升学时会选择寄宿;寄宿通常有助于为他们从预备学校毕业后升入高中开始寄宿生活做好准备。  预备学校有哪些好处?预备学校的班级规模通常较小,可为每一名学生提供更多的单独教学时间。作为独立学校,预备学校无需遵循国家的课程标准。预备学校独立协会 (IAPS) 的所有成员学校均承诺遵守严格的标准提供广泛的课程,但他们可自由决定教学方式和教学内容。这种独立性意味着他们能够根据每位学生的情况因材施教,而不是刻板地遵循政府的规定。除班级规模较小之外,预备学校的另一个好处是,通常由各学科专家授课,而不是一整周都由一位老师授课。这意味着语言课、体育课、表演和创意艺术课以及科学课由不同的老师授课,类似于公立初中,但学生的年龄要小一些。通常,某些专业教学从学生四岁上学前班时就开始了。  预备学校是什么样子?预备学校通常有较大的校区,校内配备了各种各样的设施。因为班级规模较小,每位学生都有最好的机会在一个获得各方面支持的教育环境中学习和成长。预备学校对课程的掌控较为自由,可以在传统课堂内外提供一个平衡的学习体验。预备学校除了专注于学业之外,还会为学生提供各种机会,通过课外活动发现和培养他们的兴趣和技能,包括艺术、音乐、戏剧、舞蹈、社区服务和体育等方面的兴趣和技能。   预备学校的共同理念是从小注重培养学生的“人际交往能力”和有效沟通能力,同时还强调帮助塑造每个学生的个性,提升他们的软技能,比如创造力、团队精神和独立性。   预备学校也吸引了世界各地想让子女接受英国教育的家庭的兴趣。这为课堂注入了丰富多彩的文化元素,有利于孩子们认识并接受文化的多元性和差异性。  什么是学龄前学校?   学龄前学校是面向开始上幼儿班(3 岁)或学前班(4...
