“Community Action represents, to my mind, the very best of Oundle. Time and again pupils talk about how their Community Action involvement whilst at Oundle has changed them and how much it has meant to them.”
Our Community Action programme aims to cultivate a spirit of service and encourage an awareness of the needs of people from different sectors of society.
Over 320 Fifth and Sixth Formers participate in Community Action on a weekly basis
There are pupils volunteering every day of the week
Pupils clock up more than this amount of volunteering hours every year
Each year well in excess of this amount is raised for charity which is increasingly pupil led
The Opera House, originally owned by Anglian Water, was used as the office for the Oundle Society and OO Club from 1995 until 2000, at which point they moved into The Stables at Cobthorne. It was then used by the Modern Languages Department as a classroom and a cinema for their Film Society before becoming the home of both Marketing and Community Action in 2013. It is now home solely to Community Action.
