Welcome to Boundary Oak School
Co-educational, day and boarding for Pre-School to GCSE
“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 is a magical setting for a child’s education. It is also steeped in history; the Grade II listed main building, Roche Court, was built by Peter de Roches, the bishop of Winchester, in the 13th Century and hosted King John of England and his son Henry III. The school itself is celebrating its centenary next year having been founded in 1918.
Boundary Oak School 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 passion and enthusiasm.
Our rigorous academic curriculum is supplemented by our vast array of clubs, sports, drama, music, art, computing and outdoor learning opportunities. Facilities include an art and DT studio, food technology classroom, theatre, library, ICT and 3D printing suite, woodland school, swimming pool, hockey and tennis astro, and extensive sporting grounds.
We aim to foster an intellectual curiosity to develop freedom of thought and expression and support our pupils to take responsibility for their own personal and collective learning.
In a rapidly changing world, we equip pupils with lifelong skills for the 21st century by promoting key competencies: critical thinking and problem solving, imagination and innovation, communication and teamwork, flexibility and adaptability, resilience and self-confidence.
Above all, in a world at risk from ignorance and hate, we expect our pupils to lead a life “inspired by love and guided by knowledge” (Bertrand Russell).
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”.
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. Please do come and pay us a visit so that I can show you first hand.
