Welcome to Oundle

Oundle School has long been associated with the very best of modern independent education, especially boarding. We take seriously our responsibility to our pupils so that they can emerge as decent, open-minded adults: ambitious about what they can go on to achieve and contribute, but never arrogant.

We warmly welcome pupils who have open, curious minds and an appetite to make the most of opportunities available.

Our Philosophy

At a Glance

"We have a long-held belief that a full boarding ethos offers the best environment within which to realise our ambitions for all our pupils, giving us the scope and the time to offer unparalleled opportunity that simply is not possible otherwise."
