Slide EDUCATING TOWARDS EXCELLENCE

In addition to promoting academic excellence, we do our best to offer high quality pastoral care. Our behaviour management is based on rights and responsibilities; we encourage the children to make the best possible choices, being good ‘citizens’,
supporting and respecting each other. We have a range of rewards and clear procedures when they make the ‘wrong’ choices. We encourage children to take pride in everything they do, which extends to their conduct out of school. All children wear school uniform, which makes them instantly recognisable.

WHAT SETS US APART

SMALL CLASSES

Boston believes that smaller, intimate classes allows learners the attention they require. It allows teachers to have enough time with every student and allows students a safe, comfortable learning space.

OPEN DOOR POLICY

The principal is only a call/email or meeting away. She is always open to feedback and is there to support every family and learner within the school.

INDIVIDUALISED APPROACH

At Boston we look at every learner’s individual needs and design an intervention programme specific to their needs.

RELAXED ENVIRONMENT

Boston allows learners to be themselves. We put our energy into academics and holistic development and we make an effort not to worry about the smaller “teenage” issues. Learners come to school in civvies and are permitted to share their views in the classroom.

PHENOMENAL SUPPORT PROGRAMME

Our Grade 12 learners have Saturday support classes designed to assist learners to get ready for their final exams. The rest of the school has Saturday school before the June and Year End exams. We further have an onboard OT, Speech Therapist and Art Therapist to assist with learners holistic needs.

CAREER GUIDANCE

Boston holds learners hands as they make big decisions in making subject choices or choosing career paths. Our principal has one on one sessions with each learner to assist them or answer questions.

MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME

Boston offers pastoral care to our students when they are dealing with the challenges life throws at them. The principal and teaching staff are always accessible to all learners.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

Boston will be launching a leadership programme in 2021 helping learners who have an interest in leadership to develop those skills. This includes a leadership camp in Grade 11 and public speaking courses and conflict resolution skills.
