The Corporation of Oundle School is a rewarding and exciting place to work. We are proud of our staff and we greatly value the contribution that every employee makes to the life of both Schools and our pupils. We employ over 700 people across the Corporation, including Laxton Junior School, and we are committed to ensuring the best possible environment for both the children in our care and the staff who work for us.
We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer and to be a living, breathing school with a diverse pupil and staff body. We offer a huge range of opportunities, whether your expertise and interests be in teaching, coaching sport, finance, human resources, enterprises, logistics, catering, marketing, estates or a myriad of other management, administration and domestic roles. From teaching the next generation of young people to keeping up the appearances of our gardens and grounds, working in the Health Centre, cleaning rooms and cooking meals for the children in our Houses, every single role is essential to the successful operation of our Schools.
Oundle School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
We are fortunate in our location at the heart of a beautiful market town, not least because for over 450 years the School and town have been part of the same community. The town itself is home to a buzz of activity, from local farmers’ markets and food traders to antique dealers and an independent brewery, all flanked by numerous shops, restaurants and cafes, many of which span decades of family tradition. There is a spirited cultural life, with music, literature and food festivals as well as extensive sports and social clubs for both young and old. Barnwell Country Park is within easy walking distance, while the River Nene and the surrounding countryside offer wonderful walks and outdoor pursuits.TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF SCHOOL BUILDINGS
The school and town are closely entwined and the contribution of pupils to the life of the community is much greater than mere geographical presence.ISI Report 2021
