The aim of The Review is to take the School’s strategic objectives in turn
and to give insight into how the School provided an education of the highest class during the academic year 2019 – 2020.
The pandemic created significant challenges for everyone; in particular it emphasised the importance of good pastoral care for both pupils and staff.
Their safety was, and continues to be, paramount.
The Summer Term was completed remotely but by their nature, schools are places that embrace learning.
The adoption of an entirely new mode of teaching, and indeed the operation of our School community almost entirely online,
resulted in advances to Oundle’s technological know-how that would have taken many years ordinarily.
The considerable efforts of the teaching staff are to be congratulated
and have been a significant factor in the School’s ability to respond more confidently and creatively to the continuing pandemic in the current academic year.
There have, of course, been some significant milestones achieved this year.
Against a backdrop of considerable examination uncertainty, all twenty-two pupils secured their Oxbridge offers,
two others took up places at Ivy League universities and many others gained places at top universities both here in the UK and abroad.
The new Sports Centre was successfully handed over to the School, greatly enhancing our sporting facilities and options. Details of the official opening will be given when visitors are allowed back to the School.
We remain confident that careful management and stewardship over recent years, as well as robust financial modelling throughout the pandemic, stand us in good stead to weather this challenging period.
Pupil numbers remain strong and we continue to set our sights on long term planning as well as adaptability in the short term.
The leadership by both the Head and the Bursar has been excellent and on behalf of the Governing Body,
I would like to record my sincere gratitude for the unwavering and tremendous commitment of all staff to the School.
