Gifted & Talented


In accordance with the wishes of its founder, Blessed John Henry Newman, The Oratory School strives to develop the whole person by fostering an environment in which all of our pupils are happy, secure, confident and valued and allow our pupils to achieve their academic potential. We are committed to providing a sufficiently challenging curriculum for all of our students, so that they continue to make progress. This includes those that are most able or show a particular gift, talent or aptitude in any area of school life.

At The Oratory School we believe that all children are entitled to an education that will enable them to develop their full potential, be that intellectual, physical, aesthetic, creative, emotional, spiritual or social, finding appropriate challenge in our learning environment. All students have individual needs, and we aim to put a personalised approach at the heart of our teaching and learning. These needs are met daily through classroom provisions and through our extensive program of extracurricular activities. Pupils are monitored regularly for levels of attainment to ensure that we meet our aims.
