What says..

Much that is excellent and not just the obvious – the music, the academics, but also the attention given to spiritual and emotional development. An ideal choice for a son (or sixth form daughter) who toes the line. Approach with caution if you have a scatty child who balks at authority.

What the school says...

Converted to an academy 2011.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Acting head

Pauline Devereux, previously deputy head (and author of The London Oratory School: A Celebration of 150 Years) is holding the reins whilst a new head is appointed. She is aided by Daniel Rooney.

Academic matters

Junior House boys are tested at the end of each term and reports are sent to parents, which detail their results, progress and targets.
