The Oratory is delighted to be included in the Good Schools Guide's 'Guide to the UK's Best Boarding Schools 2022'.
Boarding in the UK continues to flourish. Since the pandemic, many parents see boarding not only as a way to secure in-person learning for their children, but also as a way of maintaining extra-curricular interests and social interaction.
'Boarding Schools' from The Good Schools Guide is an unbiased guide to all that’s best in British boarding. Every single school listed has been visited by their writers who check out everything from dorms to food and weekend activities. They also speak to parents and, most important of all, pupils.
Here are a few Good Schools Guide comments on Oratory Boarding when they visited us in October 2021:
"Parents love the ability to ‘dip in and out of boarding’ – truly flexible."
"Boarding houses run with extraordinary efficiency. Flexi-boarders book in as late as that morning... ‘Blue-chip organisation,' say parents."
"Boarding staff are praised for their speed of response (‘she must have email built into her brain’) and parents are given mobile numbers, meaning house mums and dads are ‘just a WhatsApp away’."
