Oundelians are curious, decent and understated young people. The children who thrive and who are happiest at Oundle are those who want to make the most of all the opportunities that an education with a full boarding ethos offers.

Oundle Admissions

Our experienced team includes Jonny Hammond-Chambers, our Registrar, who has been at Oundle for over fifteen years and has run both an academic department and a boys’ boarding House throughout this time and Sarah Johnson, our Deputy Registrar, who has worked in the music department for over twenty years and has been Housemistress of a girls’ House for the last eight years.

The department is led by Anthony Burrows, Deputy Head Admissions, who is directly responsible for bursary enquiries and all formal assessments for entry to Oundle. Anthony has been at Oundle for more than twenty years, with over ten years spent running two separate boarding Houses and five years as a day Housemaster.

They are supported by a brilliant team who are your first point of contact for booking visits and general Admissions enquiries and who are committed to supporting your admission journey.

Joining Oundle

The first step of the Oundle admissions journey is to consider the entry point for your child. Pupils normally join Oundle at either 11+, 13+ or 16+ as a day or a boarding pupil. Occasionally entry is possible into other year groups, including boarding places at 12+ and 14+. There are slightly different timings and examination requirements for each entry point, so please do make contact with the Admissions Office who will guide you in the right direction. Do peruse the Admissions pages for all the many ways in which to engage with us or, if you want to jump directly to your chosen entry point, explore the links below to find out more.
