About BEO - Oundle School

Oundle School is situated in the quintessentially English market town from which it takes its name. The School’s buildings, dating from the seventeenth to the twenty-first century, are dispersed throughout the town, which is, to a large extent, its campus. As a result, pupils pass through the streets continually as they go to lessons, games or other activities, and are not isolated from the local community.
