The Oratory School

The Oratory is a Catholic boys’ independent boarding and day school, and provides an education of depth and breadth for both Catholic and non-Catholic families.

Boys in the grounds of The Oratory SchoolThe Oratory offers something for everyone and is very much a family school. Founded by a great man, the aim of The Oratory School was to educate Christian gentlemen who would lead English society. Academic training ran alongside personal development so that body, mind and soul were nourished and strengthened. This remains the core objective. An Oratory education instils self-esteem and confidence without arrogance and enables young men to take their place in a global community with ease. Sixth Form leavers go on to enter many of the top universities to study a wide range of courses both in the UK and abroad. Set in acres of stunning Oxfordshire countryside the school is close to Heathrow and major transportation links. The fast train from Reading reaches London in 30 minutes, making the school highly accessible for busy families. Personal show rounds are conducted on a daily basis and there are two open mornings a year.
