Facility Hire

The Oratory is the perfect venue for any event. We are proud to offer superb facilities set in 100 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.


Chartwells Independent, our in-house caterers, are passionate about food! They specialise in providing freshly-prepared, nutritious menus using locally-sourced produce. They can create bespoke menus, crafted to match the unique culture and individual needs of your function.

So whether you are looking for a formal meal or something a little more casual, our team can assist with advice from initial menu consultations, to tastings, right through to service.


The School has 200 beds in boarding houses of various capacities. Most accommodation is in single and twin rooms, with shared bathroom facilities. There are a limited number of en-suite rooms.
