Thank you for your interest in The Oratory Prep School. Whilst the world may have temporarily stopped, planning for your child’s education and development should not, and we are delighted to welcome you virtually to our school.

Following the UK Government announcement for a second lockdown in England, we are unfortunately not able to welcome prospective families to the school. However, during this period, we have ensured a virtual admissions process is in place to provide families who are considering The Oratory Prep School with the information they need.

Here is just a taste of life at The Oratory Prep School:


We hope that this website, our other videos, photos and prospectus give you a flavour of what The Oratory Prep School has to offer, and we will be delighted to welcome you to the school as soon as we possibly can.

Our virtual admissions process is outlined below. In the first instance, we would invite you to get in touch with our Admissions Registrar, Mrs Atkinson, on email

We look forward to meeting you and learning more about your child, albeit virtually for the time being.

Make an Enquiry

We invite you to contact our Admissions Registrar on  Mrs Atkinson will send you our online prospectus and discuss the next steps in our admissions process. She will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have at this stage.

Virtual Meeting with the Headmaster

We invite you to meet with the Headmaster, Mr Stewart, virtually via Google Meet, or similar. In the meeting, you will be able to discuss the needs of your child and ask questions about how Oratory Prep School can help nurture and develop your child’s talents and abilities. Depending on which year group your child would be joining, we will also ensure you meet relevant members of our team virtually.

Registration and Assessment

Following a meeting with the Headmaster, we will invite you to register for a place at The Oratory Prep School. We will discuss how your child will be assessed depending on the year group they would be joining. For children who are joining Pre-Prep, we would ask for a contact at your child’s current school or nursery, whilst for pupils who are joining the Prep School, we will ask for a recent school report and a reference from your child’s current school.

Offer and Acceptance

Once we have reviewed the information provided, we will be able to confirm whether we are able to offer a place for your child. We will then send a formal offer letter together with our Terms and Conditions, which you will need to sign and agree to in order to accept a place.


We look forward to helping your family with this important decision, and are here to support you in any way we can; please just get in touch by emailing
