The founding L6th Form of Wootten House joined The Oratory online lessons this week.
The Oratory to welcome girls from 2020
The Oratory has announced that from September 2020, it will become a coeducational school, welcoming girls and boys from the age of 11 to 18.
Joe Smith, Head Master said “We are delighted to be making this announcement and excited to be able to offer families of girls and boys alike our unique Oratory education. By extending our vibrant provision we will be providing an outstanding preparation for our pupils in what lies beyond The Oratory.”
Matthew Stilwell, Chair of Governors, said “Many of the families who enquire about a place at The Oratory already have children in coeducational schools, including of course The Oratory Prep School, and we have seen that parents are increasingly looking for a family-based school which can serve daughters and sons at one school.” The Oratory has a long tradition of providing pupils at the school with a warm and purposeful educational environment and has now decided to offer The Oratory’s excellent educational and pastoral opportunities to both boys and girls.
Thank you to all the families who have been to The Oratory your support has been fantastic.
Introducing Bonnie, one of our #pioneergirls who we are delighted will be joining us in 2020.
This is the moment in Oratory history for pupils to shape the future.
