LAXTON JUNIOR SCHOOL

In addition to extensive playing fields, Oundle now has two sports centres catering for indoor sports and a brand new superbly-equipped 70 station fitness suite. There are five squash courts, four Rugby fives courts, four floodlit Astroturf pitches, three indoor and six designated outdoor netball courts along with fourteen additional outdoor courts, dual use with tennis during the summer, a Tartan athletics track and a 50m swimming pool with a moveable floor and submersible boom.

The School has two boathouses, one in Oundle beside the North Bridge over the River Nene and one at Tansor, where the river has an almost straight mile which is ideal for training purposes. Sailing is offered as a sporting option and takes place at Rutland Water, one of the best location for dinghy sailing in England. There is an indoor small-bore shooting range within the CCF grounds, as well as an outdoor full-bore range.

“Supporting competitive team sport and elite individual sportsmen and women is a core responsibility of School sport and requires both expert coaching and a wide range of appropriate, multi-faceted facilities.”
Sarah Kerr-Dineen, Head of Oundle School
