The Sports MasterPlan has facilitated major investment in sporting facilities in recent years. Its vision is to develop sport at top competitive levels whilst catering for a range of sports and leisure activities at all levels.
Opened in September 2020, the Oundle School Sports Centre is the flagship of the Sports MasterPlan. It is central to the expansion of the sports programme, and offers pupils a wide range of both sport and leisure-based facilities and activities.

We place great value on both our Sport Scholarship scheme and Dedicated Athlete Programme which help develop and motivate all those who show the necessary potential, ambition and dedication. We expect our Sport Scholars to be role models and leaders and they, in turn, can expect first-class coaching, mentoring and access to outstanding facilities.
The School has formal links with Northampton Saints (Rugby) and Loughborough Lightning (Netball) and the last year has seen pupil representation at regional and national level for cricket, badminton, rugby, tennis, show jumping, hockey and netball.
