About Oundle School
Oundle School is a co-educational independent boarding and day school based in Northamptonshire for students aged 11-18.
Oundle School was established in 1556. It is run as a charitable trust and is administered by a governing body, which includes several members of the Grocers’ Company and operates through seven sub-committees.
The school has roughly 860 full boarders and 250 day pupils. Most pupils come from professional and business backgrounds. The majority of the school’s boarders’ families are based in the UK but the school is also home to pupils from over 20 countries overseas.
At the school, there is also a house system and pastoral care is based around provision within the houses.
In recent years, at the school, there has been a restructuring of the senior management team, a refurbishment of a school library and the creation of a social centre for pupils.
Values and vision
Oundle School aims to help to create informed, confident, enthusiastic, well-rounded, and independent adults with intellectual curiosity and a strong moral sense.
