Alex Brighton, Housemaster
Fisher is a friendly, supportive and outgoing House, from which you will be able to make the most of the many fantastic opportunities awaiting you at Oundle.
Originally known as Laxton House, the boarding House was first established on West Street. It was relocated to join the other Field Houses in 1905 and in 2001 it was renamed Fisher House after former headmaster, Kenneth Fisher.
The House maintains several characteristics and guiding principles, not least being respectful to all of those around you, being honest at all times, and making the very most of the opportunities that you have, and being thankful for them.
Fisher’s location as a Field House allows for peaceful mornings and evenings. The close proximity to the sports pitches and the amazing new Sports Centre means that a game of football, tennis, cricket etc is always available at your fingertips.
We take great pride in sport, meaning there is always a great atmosphere at any event, something which you will quickly experience when you join. However, if sport is not your strong suit, there is plenty else going on, whether your skills lie in anything from music and drama to debating, which we often shine in.
