A Statement on Behalf of the Schools of Oundle Town

In the days since the invasion of Ukraine we have all watched with horror and sadness at what is unfolding in that country.

In these difficult times, the schools of Oundle town stand with many in our community in offering support for the Ukrainian people affected by this conflict and those Russians, including our own students and their families, who are not responsible for this action and speak out against it.

The schools of Oundle are collectively preparing to support any children displaced by these events who may arrive in our community over the coming weeks and months.

We will work together to offer them welcome, school places for continuity of their education and support with their transition to the UK, drawing upon the expertise and experience available in our schools.
