The Oratory School

The Oratory School is a Roman Catholic, independent school for boys in Woodcote, Oxfordshire. The school also offers preparatory schooling for both boys and girls up to the age of 13.

It has links with but is not officially affiliated with fellow Oratorian school, the London Oratory School, and the Brompton Oratory. Although a separate entity from the nearby Oratory Preparatory School, it shares a board of governors and a common history.

According to the Good Schools Guide, 70% of pupils achieve A/B grades at A Level, and that the School "enjoys inspirational leadership, has achieved GSG 'overall best in UK' for three years running and is consistently at the top of the tree", with "state-of-the-art" boarding facilities and an ongoing refurbishment programme under way.

Famous quotes containing the words school and/or oratory:

    A man of sense and energy, the late head of the Farm School in Boston Harbor, said to me, “I want none of your good boys,Mgive me the bad ones.” And this is the reason, I suppose, why, as soon as the children are good, the mothers are scared, and think they are going to die.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Some of the greatest and most lasting effects of genuine oratory have gone forth from secluded lecture desks into the hearts of quiet groups of students.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
