Links with Oundle School continue to be strengthened year on year. Pupils benefit greatly from the extended facilities of the senior school, including opportunities afforded within the renowned STEM facility of SciTec and also through the Sports MasterPlan which has seen the upgrading of sports facilities across the board. Subject leaders at LJS connect with colleagues at Oundle School to create deep and meaningful subject links and exciting opportunities for children.
Oundle staff and pupils provide exciting after school language clubs in Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and Latin. Through the Oundle School Community Action programme, many Oundelians come to LJS on a weekly basis to support learning in a range of lessons and activities, providing the Schools’ youngest children with the best possible role models. Many of these pupils were at LJS before moving up to Oundle and actively choose to keep in touch with LJS and their former teachers through these links.
Opened to our pupils in September 2020, the Oundle School Sports Centre is the flagstone of the Sports MasterPlan offering pupils a wide range of both sport and leisure-based facilities and activities.
Built first and foremost for Oundle and Laxton Junior School pupils, the Sports Centre is now preparing to open for public use from October 2020. Public access in term time is programmed around the sporting requirements of both Oundle and Laxton Junior School, with both Schools allocated exclusive access to the Sports Centre at key times.
"Laxton Junior School was an amazing experience for me and my two brothers. It taught me a lot and definitely prepared me for my future at Oundle School. I think that the fact that four out of the last six Heads of School have all come from LJS is a testament to how great a school it is."Marcus, ( Head Boy, Oundle School 2019/2020)
