Oundle School’s beautiful limestone buildings, set in immaculate grounds, offer a stunning backdrop for wedding receptions, summer parties and celebrations. 

Receptions and parties can be held in many of our unique buildings which are made exclusively yours for the day or evening, from the historic and imposing oak-panelled Great Hall accommodating an audience of up to 450, the historic Laxton Long Room which is ideal for smaller, more intimate gatherings, to the Common Room which offers a more relaxed and informal venue with adjacent lawn that can accommodate a marquee.

The Yarrow Gallery is highly adaptable for activities such as poetry readings, and exhibitions, whilst its balconied space naturally lends itself to receptions and musical events. The School Chapel offers a contemplative and inspirational venue for music, and is available to past pupils and staff for weddings and christenings.

The School’s grounds provide perfect settings in which to erect marquees for summer balls, family gatherings or wedding receptions. Events can be situated close to indoor facilities, while benefiting from the lovely atmosphere and photo opportunities offered within the gardens.

The Cloisters offer a secluded and sheltered Italianate venue for summer receptions in the centre of Oundle town. In contrast, our swimming pool can be booked for children’s inflatable or swimming parties, and we also offer group bookings and parties on our indoor climbing wall.

Clients are free to make all their own arrangements for their special event, or the School Enterprises team are happy to recommend local suppliers who are experts in their fields.
