Get In Touch

Welcome to The Oratory Prep School

Situated within 20 minutes from Reading and one hour from London, The Oratory Prep School is a co-educational Catholic boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 2 to 13, set within 65 acres of Oxfordshire countryside with outstanding facilities.


Here at The Oratory Prep School, we look forward to working with you and your child to ensure that his or her learning journey continues – not only in a way that challenges them intellectually, but in a manner that inspires their curiosity and enables them to dream.

Open Morning

Our next Open Morning will be held on Friday 10th February 2023, 9.30am - 11.30am.

Join us for a wonderful social occasion for parents and families, giving a snapshot of everyday life at our school.


“The staff at The Oratory Prep are more than just teachers, they go beyond to understand your child, how to get the best out of them but also how to support them in and outside the classroom. From Early Years at Nursery to Prep, your child is nurtured and cared for in a happy and family environment.”

Thinking of Relocating

At the start of each academic year, and indeed in-year, we welcome families who have relocated from London and further afield to join our school community. Get in touch with us today to find out more about how we can help.
