Then children move up from the primary schools at the age of eleven to Prince William School which was opened in 1971 by Prince William of Gloucester, as simply Oundle Secondary School.

Oundle School is now the the third-largest boarding school in the country and won Tatler’s Public School of the Year in 2012.
