Our community is defined by very strong pastoral care; the nurturing of each individual pupil is at the very heart of school life.
We have a dedicated Deputy Head Pastoral who takes a key role in overseeing the happiness and wellbeing of everyone in the school, and our resident Chaplain has the care of all pupils regardless of religious affiliation, but all our staff are involved in Pastoral Care. The majority of staff live on site with their families and are heavily involved in the co-curricular life of the school. This helps them get to know the pupils outside of the classroom, and relationships are strengthened on the sports field, in the theatre or in the music department.
From the time they enter to the time they leave, our aim is to ensure that each pupil is valued as an individual. The warmth and support of the school enables the Oratory pupils to develop a strong self belief and resilience that will support them throughout their life.
