The Oratory Schools Association: Gender Pay Gap Report
We are an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. The Gender pay gap is defined as the difference in median pay between men and women.
The Oratory Schools Association consist of The Oratory School, a Roman Catholic day and boarding school for boys from 11-18, with approximately 146 staff, and The Oratory Preparatory School, a Roman Catholic day and boarding school for boys and girls from 3 to 13, with 110 staff.
The data is taken from April 2018 and is published on our website and submitted to the government. The Office for National Statistics shows the national pay gap has fallen from 27.5% in 1997, to 18.4% in 2017 and to 17.9% in 2018, but remains positive in value – meaning that on average men are paid more than women.
