The Oratory School

We are thrilled to unveil our latest campus for 2023, the Oratory School, nestled in the picturesque Oxfordshire countryside. Thier expansive grounds offer a wealth of sports facilities, including a golf course, real tennis courts, and multiple lawn tennis courts, providing our students with ample opportunities to stay active and engaged.

Founded in 1859, the Oratory School boasts a rich history and is home to many of its original buildings. It’s no surprise that renowned author J.R.R. Tolkien chose one of thier beautiful rooms to pen a portion of his literary masterpiece, “The Hobbit.”

In the last century, the Oratory School has gained recognition for its success in Real Tennis, and has become a favourite destination for the Royal Family, who have visited numerous times to play against both staff and students.
