Oundle was named Public School of the Year at the Tatler Schools Awards 2018 in central London.

Delighted at accepting the award, Head, Sarah Kerr-Dineen, called it ‘the most wonderful compliment’ to the hard work of all concerned in delivering the world class education that Oundle offers.

Mrs Kerr-Dineen said: “The pupils also deserve this recognition.  Their drive to make the most of their time at Oundle guides us every day to ensure we are delivering the best for them.”

Tatler bases the awards on the research conducted for its annual Schools Guide, taking views from fellow schools and parents across the country.
