“We have a long-held belief that a full boarding ethos offers the best environment within which to realise our ambitions for all our pupils, giving us the scope and the time to offer unparalleled opportunity that simply is not possible otherwise, from the youngest to the oldest, boarders and day pupils alike.”
We are one of the largest boarding schools in the UK and one of the very few schools to offer an authentic full modern boarding ethos. Our identity as a school is defined by this ethos and the opportunities that it affords our pupils. The fact that we are either all in or all out across our senior Houses gives continuity to our boarding community and importantly, gives friendship to pupils across the week.
It also means that in term time, we are able genuinely to envisage the seven day week as the canvas on which we paint our pupils’ education. Day pupils too benefit from this breadth of opportunity beyond a normal School day, while returning to their own homes at night.
“There is no need to be nervous about boarding as the welcoming and friendly environment at Oundle makes it feel like home from home.”Current pupil
