The Oratory Preparatory School

The Oratory Prep is a leading independent Catholic day and boarding school for children aged 2 to 13 years.


Boarding is an integral part of school life, providing a hugely popular, enjoyable, and enriching experience for children aged 7 upwards. We strive to create a ‘home away from home’ environment where children feel happy, secure, and part of a close-knit community.

“The staff are experts. I leave my children knowing that they will be stretched, supported and developed in every way possible.” Armed Forces Parent

Our Boarding House, located in the main school building, is made up of distinct areas for boys and girls, offering a selection of shared rooms where full-time, weekly, and flexi-boarders live together. Our friendly, familial atmosphere is made all the more richer because of the diverse mix of children from many nationalities.

Boarders enjoy a full and varied calendar of activities and trips throughout the year, as well as making the most of our 65 acres of land and extensive facilities. On Saturdays, the children take part in our Saturday Enrichment Programme, followed by sports matches and time spent with friends including opportunities to stay with families of our day pupils. On Sundays, they enjoy various outings including visits to the cinema, ice skating, rock climbing, bowling, cultural trips, camping and so much more.
