Sixth Form


Welcome to the Sixth Form page, which I hope will give you a taste of what is on offer both inside and outside the classroom in the Sixth Form of The Oratory School.

Here is our Sixth Form Brochure where you will find summaries of the subjects available at A Level. In this area you will also find an outline of how we help with study skills, independent learning, careers guidance and university applications. As well as a varied curriculum, you will find that we also have a wealth of extra-curricular activities and other opportunities on offer, all of which mean that life at The Oratory is extremely fulfilling.

The pastoral and social aspects of Sixth Form life at a school like The Oratory are an excellent preparation for life in higher education and employment where learning, cooperation and teamwork as well as self-motivation and time management in a busy boarding environment are all vitally important. The opportunity for selected boys to take on the responsibilities of prefectorial roles both within the school as a whole and within their Houses exists for those with a passion for leadership and who show that they are able to act as role models for others.

At this key stage in school life, it is good to know that there is plenty of experienced help at hand. All the staff at The Oratory are committed to giving the best and most personal advice and guidance to every boy, to help each one play to his strengths whilst trying new things, and to use well both his talents and his opportunities.

Academic Tutors, alongside the Head of Sixth Form who oversees the academic side of the process, will work hard to assist students to develop themselves academically as well as socially to ensure as competitive a university application as possible during the first term of the Upper Sixth year.

Please use the appropriate links to find out more about the preparation given for life after school and the other various opportunities on offer in the Sixth Form at The Oratory, or for a fuller flavour still, please do arrange a visit to the school.
