Welcome to The Oratory School


We’re holding our Sixth Form Open Week from 20-25 November. Click here to find out more information.



The Oratory School is an Independent Boys’ Boarding and Day School for ages 11-18. We are a Catholic school which welcomes boys of all faiths or none. We are a happy and supportive community where boys from all backgrounds are welcomed and inspired to learn and grow. We are blessed with outstanding facilities on a magnificent country estate and yet we are within easy travelling distance of London, major motorways, railways and airports. We also have a growing bus network.

The School offers small class sizes and superb facilities and whilst the focus is on high academic achievement, Head Master, Joe Smith, has a clear vision to ensure that each boy flourishes and fulfils his maximum potential both in and far beyond the classroom, and to this end a wide variety of co-curricular activities help to enrich the boys’ learning. We are extremely proud of our confident, independent and happy boys, so please do visit us and let them tell you all about the school.
