Our Boarding House offers a home away from home experience, with comfortable lounges to relax with friends, an ICT Suite, 30 acres of wonderful countryside grounds, tennis courts, heated outdoor swimming pool and an on-site sports centre. There are also quiet areas for prep, with boarding tutors providing additional support when needed.
Boarders are able to make the most of their time with us, forging long-lasting friendships and gaining valuable skills such as independence and responsibility whilst under the care and guidance of our boarding team. They also benefit from the extended day, with time and space to participate in a multitude of co-curricular activities, complete their school work and socialise with others.
The weekend programme is packed with trips to a range of venues such as the zoo and the theatre, cultural visits of the local areas, shopping expeditions, plus leisure activities such as ice skating and water parks.
Our team of Boarding staff appreciate the importance of a balance between school work and social life. Academic support, with an emphasis on independent learning, is offered in addition to a range of fun weekend activities.
The boarding staff are simply fantastic. They always ensure that the atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable, and help my children to feel valued, loved and self-confident.Boarding parent
Each evening and at weekends they are able to take advantage of having teaching staff on hand to help them with their daily prep as well as use of the ICT suite and the library.
The boarding house is split into age appropriate dormitories to accommodate different bedtimes. Our youngest boarders are located closest to our boarding staff, whilst our senior boarders benefit from having a little more independence and privileges to recognise their seniority. We encourage our boarders to decorate their dorm areas with posters, pictures from home and personal items such as their own bedding and cuddly toys.
Starting your child at boarding school may feel scary and even a little overwhelming at first but at Boundary Oak we do everything we can to ensure your child is happy, safe and supported at all times. We offer full, weekly and where possible, flexi boarding so that you can find a balance that suits your family best.
We are delighted to announce that Boundary Oak is now an accredited Covid Safe Charter School. By adopting the Boarding Schools’ Association Charter we pledge to ensure full compliance with all Government rules and guidance to meet the requirements stated within the Charter.
The BSA Covid Safe Charter has been created to reassure parents and pupils, giving them confidence that a school is taking all appropriate measures to ensure that classrooms, facilities and residential accommodation are a safe environment to live and work.BSA Covid Safe Charter BSA Covid Safe Charter
