Our admissions process

We know that choosing the right school for your child can often be confusing and time consuming, so we try to make the process here at The Oratory as enjoyable and straightforward as possible.

Pupils enter the school either at:

  • 11+ through internally set Entrance Examination (English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning papers)
  • 13+ through the ISEB Common Academic Scholarship or ISEB Common Entrance Examinations. After registering in Year 6 pupils will be required to sit the ISEB Pre-test in Year 7.
  • 16+ through predicted GCSE grades and school reports.

Admission at other stages may be possible, subject to the availability of a place.
