Boarding at the Oratory Prep is a popular, enjoyable and enriching experience for children in Year 3 upwards. Children have the option of Full-time, Weekly or Flexible boarding, to suit individual family needs.
Boarders spend the entire term with us, visiting guardians or relatives during half-term and Exeat weekends. At weekends they have a busy and exciting programme of activities.
Many of our parents find that weekly boarding suits them best. Boarders arrive on either Sunday evening or Monday morning, and return home on Friday evening or Saturday lunchtime. The school is delighted to be able to offer escorted travel between London and the OPS on a Friday evening / Sunday evening – please ask for more details about this service.
Flexible (flexi) boarding is increasingly in demand: children can board for just a few nights each week or for the odd night here and there. Boarders stay with us when they want to, or when their parents need to make use of this facility. Providing we have room, children are most welcome to use us like a hotel! Our flexi boarding weeks for specific year groups are very popular – please ask for more details about these.
