Boundary Oak School Teaching Staff“Through our curriculum we aim to equip our pupils for the 21st Century by promoting a key competencies: we want our pupils to excel at critical thinking and problem solving, to be imaginative and innovative; to communicate well, to work in teams and to be flexible, adaptable and self-confident.” James Polansky, Headmaster.

At Boundary Oak School, a private school based in Hampshire, we offer a broad, relevant, challenging and exciting curriculum. In the lower end of the school the EYFS curriculum is supplemented by the Open Futures curriculum with its four strands of Ask It, Grow It, Cook It, and Film It. In Pre-Prep the emphasis is on the core subjects of English and Mathematics and these are enhanced by lessons in Science, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Computer Science, PSHE, Drama, Music, PE, French and Art/DT; with the last four all being delivered by specialist teachers. In the Junior Prep school these subjects continue and from Year 6 they are joined by Spanish and, in addition, they are all taught by specialist teachers from Year 6 onwards.

The broad curriculum on offer in Junior Prep continues into the Senior School where from Year 9 pupils are introduced to almost all of our GCSE subjects. In Year 9 teaching staff and mentors support pupils as they make their GCSE choices, with most pupils taking between eight and ten subjects at GCSE.

Our in-depth curriculum is supported by an array of co-curricular activities, including regular field trips, residential trips, Duke of Edinburgh Award, World Challenge as well as visits to the theatre, museums, art galleries and places of cultural interest. We also offer over 70 clubs a week including Coding club, Electric car building, Horse Riding, Sailing, Chess Club, Science and Dissection Club, Musical Theatre, Orchestra, Public speaking and a huge variety of other hobby and sports clubs.
