Oundle School is seeking a qualified Registered Nurse for its Health Centre.

the Role

The Health Centre provides medical care and health services to boarders and day pupils across the School and a limited service to staff and visiting pupils; it is integral to the health and wellbeing of pupils.

The School Doctors operate GP surgeries for the boarders (under the NHS) at the School Health Centre. Registered Nurses provide a range of health services, including nurse-led clinics, sports day emergency treatment, overnight “on-call” provision and advice on health-related matters. They work closely with the rest of the pastoral team to ensure the medical well-being of our pupils. Other services at the Health Centre include a Nurse Practitioner, School Wellbeing Service and a visiting Physiotherapist. The Health Centre offers a 24/7 service to pupils during term time. The Lead Nurse and Registered Nurses provide a presence in the Health Centre at all times.


Oundle and Laxton Junior Schools have long been associated with the very best of modern independent education, especially boarding. The Schools take seriously their responsibility to pupils so that they can emerge as decent, open-minded adults; ambitious about what they can go on to achieve and contribute. Over 1400 pupils are on roll at the School, of whom 840 are full boarders. Academic results are steadfastly excellent. 

 A team of around 800 staff, both academic and support, ensure an education of the highest standard is in place across the Schools with the efforts of the whole team focused on this fundamental aim.

Living in Oundle

We are fortunate in our location at the heart of a beautiful market town. School and town are part of the same community and our pupils take their place within this community, not isolated from it. The town has a spirited cultural life, with an annual international festival, literature festival, and frequent performances of nationally touring shows at the School’s Stahl Theatre.
