Our philosophy is based on the dual aims of Sport for all and excellence at all levels.
Sport plays an important role in the life of every Oratory boy. We believe that providing quality and varied sporting opportunities is essential in an active day and boarding school, both for health and fitness reasons as well as the sense of achievement and value that active participation and successful competition bring.
We actively encourage as many boys as possible to represent the School in whatever capacity and at all levels and not simply promote the most able. This however, does not compromise our desire to fully extend our most talented performers and enable them to play at the highest possible standard. The boys are involved in games five days a week with our main fixtures taking place on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
In addition to the above we offer many other sports including: Badminton, Basketball, Golf, Real Tennis, Squash, Swimming, and Tennis.
Our facilities are second to none and include 11 rugby/football pitches, six cricket squares, our own boat house on the River Thames, indoor rifle range, squash courts, 12 tennis courts (6 grass), a large sports centre complex including a Real Tennis court and a recently built weight training facility.
