“We are very proud of our school and pupils. Our recent ISI inspection graded our pupils’ attitude to learning, communication skills and all aspects of their personal development as ‘Excellent’- the highest grade.” James Polansky, Headmaster
Located among 30 acres of beautiful, English countryside with fields, woods and stunning views, Boundary Oak School is a magical setting for children’s education. Steeped in history, our Grade II listed main building, Roche Court, was built by Peter de Roches, in the 13th Century.
Boundary Oak takes pride in its strong family ethos and the personalised learning it provides. This is a community of learning built upon mutual trust between teachers and pupils with a strong, shared sense of purpose and a commitment, to high standards driven by enthusiasm.
We look to foster an intellectual curiosity to develop freedom of thought and expression and support our pupils to take responsibility for their personal and collective learning. Central to our ethos at Boundary Oak is our aim to promote a love for learning in all our pupils. We do this by not only equipping them with lifelong skills, but by encouraging and developing their passions.
The world is full of wonder and potential. The breadth and depth of our knowledge-rich curriculum and the range of adventures and co-curricular activities we offer, ensure that our pupils our equipped to seize the opportunities and follow their dreams.
We are very proud of our school and pupils. Our last ISI inspection graded our pupils’ attitude to learning, communication skills and all aspects of their personal development as “Excellent”. We look to instil in our pupils the values we hold dear, our 7 Rs: be Respectful, Responsible, Reflective, Responsive, Resourceful, Resilient and Relentless.
Boundary Oak School is an amazing place for your child to learn, grow and develop; it’s a very special community that my family and I are honoured to be part of.
