The market town is home to the highly regarded Oundle Public School, which has buildings dotted throughout the town.

Pupils walk through the streets as they change lessons, and are regarded as an integral part of the local community.

Fellow pupils at the Prince William School helped provide the backing vocals for the S Club 7 Children in Need fund raising single, Have You Ever. They were part of the 275,000 pupils who took part in the 2001 event across the country.

Close by in the village of Ashton, the World Conker Championships takes place. The title was won by an Oundle resident, 47 year old Neil Fraser in October 2001.
Four hundred competitors of all ages and sexes competed for five titles. The championships started in 1965 as an alternative to fishing!

The Oundle market is full of fresh fruit and vegetables, along with newly baked bread and cakes.
Despite its traditions, Oundle also has a luxury element. Fairline Boats and Amps Fine Wines are just two of the local employers who add an extra touch of class.
