Oundle’s Combined Cadet Force is the largest single organisation in the School. Over 400 pupils are actively engaged in CCF on a weekly basis, the largest School CCF in the country. The School is also the largest Duke of Edinburgh centre in Central England.


The Oundle School Corps dates back to 1902, as the Rifle Corps 1st (Volunteer) Battalion the Northamptonshire Regiment. Since 1958, the Cadet Corps at Oundle has continuously maintained all three Service sections. Participating in CCF develops leadership skills, teamwork, self-reliance and a sense of service; for some pupils, it will introduce them to a career in the military.
