The Oratory is the perfect venue for any event. We are proud to offer superb facilities set in 120 acres of beautiful South Oxfordshire countryside, with a quality of service that you would expect from a location steeped in tradition.

As a boarding school, The Oratory provides a great venue for a wide range of residential functions during the Easter and Summer holidays. We regularly host educational, sporting, and religious residential visitors, and welcome enquiries from other societies and organisations.
