Visit The Oratory Prep School

Personalised Tour

The best way to find out more about our school and explore our 65 acre site is by booking a personalised tour. Led by a member of staff or one of our pupils, you will have the opportunity to discover our school community and how your child can unlock their learning journey at The Oratory Prep School.

In order to fully explore our school site, we recommend allowing at least an hour and a half for your visit.

We also encourage you to bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes or wellington boots as your tour will include a ‘walk and talk through the woodlands’ with the Headmaster.

Tours generally take place during term time and you can also visit at certain times during the holidays too. If you are unable to visit us in person, please do take a look at our virtual tour or book in a Zoom call with our Registrar, Demelza Timmins or call 0118 976 6924.

Our Open Mornings offer:

  • A relaxing, fun and interactive experience for the whole family, giving a snapshot of everyday life at our school
  • Time to engage with our teachers and pupils in a range of learning environments from classrooms and science labs to our music rooms, Theatre, dance studio and indoor swimming pools.
  • An opportunity to talk and put questions to our Headmaster and parents as well as our teachers and pupils.
