The position would suit an Economics graduate, a more experienced teacher or, indeed, somebody changing careers.

Economics is housed in the Coach House, along with Politics and Psychology. Currently a department of five Economics teachers, it is a popular subject with approximately 120 pupils across the Sixth Form opting for the subject. The Department follows the AQA A-Level syllabus, but also prides itself in providing an Economics education that is not purely based on classroom teaching, believing in a philosophy of immersion in the world of Economics. This extends to a comprehensive and diverse Economics Society lecture series; annual trips Economics conferences in London or elsewhere and involvement in various Economics-based competitions (within the department and nationally). Each year, a very good number of Oundle pupils pursue Economics and allied courses at top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

The town has a spirited cultural life, with an annual international festival, literature festival, and frequent performances of nationally touring shows at the School’s Stahl theatre.
