Head PhotoThe Oratory Preparatory School is a Catholic day and boarding school for boys and girls from 3 to 13 which welcomes children of all denominations and faiths. Over the past two years, OPS pupils have gained 39 awards to their senior schools, including academic scholarships and exhibitions to Abingdon, The Oratory, Marlborough and Queen Anne’s, Caversham.

Situated in a 60-acre estate, the school boasts a purpose-built theatre and large modern music department, as well as numerous games pitches, hard courts and an artificial surface. The year 2008 saw a new indoor swimming-pool complex and cricket pavilion.

Our extensive academic curriculum is supported by a wide-ranging activity programme, which includes everything from cookery, dance and gymnastics to archery and golf. A high quality of pastoral care is also provided: first by class teachers (for younger children), and then by tutors in mixed-age tutor groups (for Years 5-8).

At OPS we are concerned for the whole child, not just in the classroom but in every aspect of their daily lives. This is the ethos that makes us such an attractive school, not just to parents from a Catholic background but to parents who want their children to be educated in a supportive and nurturing family environment, where every child is valued.
