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, and use of school sporting facilities including tennis courts, a 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 schoolwork and socialise with their peers.
At Boundary Oak, we promote a healthy balance between school work and social life and the team of boarding staff appreciates the importance of this wholeheartedly. We take great measures to ensure your child is the happiest, healthiest version of themselves. The weekend programme is packed with trips to a range of venues such as the zoo and the theatre, cultural visits to the local areas, shopping expeditions, plus leisure activities such as ice skating and water parks. Academic support, with an emphasis on independent learning, is also offered in addition to the 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 the use of the ICT suite and the library.
The boarding house located in the main school building 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 and pictures from home and personal items such as their own bedding and cuddly toys.
