Oundle School is one of Britain’s leading boarding schools and is situated in the charming market town of Oundle, Northamptonshire, about 90 miles north of London. It lies just 15 miles south of Peterborough, where there is a 45 minute direct train to London King’s Cross.
The School’s buildings, dating from the 17th to the 21st centuries, are dispersed throughout the town. This level of co-existence with the town gives the School a unique and distinctive character and provides a safe and truly English experience for the students. The school dates back to 1556 and the buildings and surroundings echo with history. However, it is a school that has moved with the times and the facilities for leisure and learning are amongst the best in the country. It is an exceptional location for a summer programme.
