SARAH KERR-DINEEN, HEAD OF OUNDLE SCHOOL
“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. Our pupils take their place within this community, not isolated from it.”
The location of School buildings throughout the heart of the town itself creates a unique environment and community. The fact that the pupils share the town of Oundle with the local residents instils in them an appreciation of the responsibilities of co-location and helps to create a natural humility which gives a unique feel to the School.
Today, the Market Place is home to a buzz of activity, from local farmers’ markets and food traders to antique dealers and a travelling fishmonger.
Located at the heart of the town, it is flanked on all sides by shops and cafés, many of which span decades of family tradition.
