The School believes that as many pupils as possible should have an opportunity to represent the School at rugby. To this end Oundle turns out six regular Sixth Form teams, four U16 teams, four U15 teams and as many as six U14 teams for the boys. In addition, there is a growing number of girls playing rugby, and there is one senior girls squad representing the School.

The Oundle School Rugby Club provides a niche for every pupil, ranging from the keen enthusiast who enjoys a social game of rugby, to the serious-minded who may wish to explore the possibilities of professional rugby on leaving school.

Oundle plays a large and extensive fixture list that comprises many of the well-known traditional rugby schools, such as Radley, Harrow, Oakham, Haileybury, Rugby and Uppingham.
