Vision and values
As a Catholic school, The London Oratory School upholds Canon Law and the teachings of the Catholic Church. The school aims to provide an environment that supports the spiritual, physical, moral and intellectual development of each pupil. It also strives to offers a wide range of educational, cultural and spiritual experiences, which will help each pupil reach their maximum potential.
The curriculum is broad and varied and seeks to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils. Pupils
are well versed in the core subjects, which include history, science, English and maths, but the school believes physical activity is just as important. All pupils have at least two periods of sport and physical education each week. Music is also a big part of life at the school and all pupils in the first three years must study the subject.
