Oratory Preparatory School

The Oratory Preparatory School is a Catholic day and boarding school for just over 400 boys and girls from 2 to 13. Founded by John Henry Cardinal Newman, the school continues to provide an education which is rooted in the traditions and teaching of the Catholic Church.



The Oratory Preparatory School is not just a school for Catholics. We welcome everyone and see value and worth, skills and talents in every boy and girl, whatever their denomination or faith. Our aim is to identify and develop this potential, not just in the classroom, but on the games field, in the theatre, in the music room, and in their daily lives: an education of the whole child, an education which aims to bring out the best in everyone. If you would like to find out more, then do ask us to send you a prospectus. But a website and prospectus can only show so much. For a true insight into the atmosphere of The Oratory Preparatory School, it is essential that you come and visit us, meet the girls and boys here, and see for yourself what makes it such a special place. Please contact the school to make an appointment and we would be delighted to show you around.
