Life at BOSS
A lot of time and effort goes into selecting and recruiting the best people to work at BOSS. All staff go through a three day training camp that includes all aspects of working in a school environment as well as working with children. All of our teachers are very well qualified and experienced, as are our House Tutors and of course our Management Team. In 2021, 85% of our team were returning to BOSS for a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th or even 7th time and with over 100 years of experience between us, we have experienced just about everything in a summer school setting and are therefore very capable of dealing with any eventuality and can guarantee that your kids are safe with us.
The BOSS campus is an eco-friendly campus where each student is encouraged to learn and to understand the importance of the environment in which they live. We have biomass boilers and solar panels around the campus which allow us to reduce our carbon footprint and means that much of Buckswood’s energy comes from the summer sun!
Our chefs cook at Buckswood all year round, serving our meals in our family style dining room.
Our chefs are always around and can cater for any dietary requirements. They are part of the ‘Buckswood Family’ so you can talk to them any time about food, arranging a dinner party or even just to practise your English!
Health and Safety
Our nurse is on call throughout the week in our very own onsite surgery to arrange any necessary health care for students who may not be feeling 100%.
To add an extra safety blanket, each member of BOSS staff is First Aid and Child Protection trained and the local hospital is just ten minutes away.
