Boarding School for International Students

Every year we welcome a small number of overseas boarders to our school, either on a long or short-stay programme.

Boundary Oak is a traditional British boarding school in England with a rich history, set in beautiful countryside grounds. For over a hundred years Boundary Oak School has been preparing international children for the next step on their educational journey as well as providing the foundations for lifelong skills.

Our international programme offers a flexible approach with students joining us for between 1 and 6 years, where we will aim to prepare them for successful entry, often with scholarships, into the best possible sixth form or further education.

We have much experience in helping students staying in our boarding house from overseas, with excellent pastoral and health care. Our boarding team is always ready to welcome children to our school community when they arrive. Students often settle quickly, and we endeavour to make sure that contact is maintained with home on a regular basis. Children are encouraged to bring their mobile phones and devices that will keep them connected with their families.
