Inspiration. Education. Passion. Confidence. Independence. Variety. Commitment. This is what makes up the academic life at The Oratory.

The teachers at The Oratory are passionate about education and work tirelessly to enable each and every boy to realise his potential. Our passion for learning, our commitment to the boys’ success and our inspirational style all help to bring the very best out of the boys at The Oratory.

We have small class sizes, a rich and varied curriculum, a real drive to instil a genuine love of learning into the boys and most importantly, we put real value on enabling the boys to become all-rounders so they can succeed in life in its broadest sense.

Our performance in exams is consistently strong but the boys’ achievements go far beyond examination success.
