Catholic Life

The mission of our school is based on the belief that every child is a unique person created in the image and likeness of God, with a God-given potential for growth and an eternal destiny in heaven.  All adults within the Oratory school community have a special vocation to ensure that our children receive the very best educational experience in order to grow in love and knowledge of God, their neighbour, themselves and the created world. 


Faith in Action

Our faith is central to everything that we do. Examples of this are:

  • The school’s Mission Statement, ‘Shining as to be a light to others’ for Jesus! This is lived each and every day by adults and children. We all work hard to ensure that everyone, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, is valued and treated with respect.

  • Our children from a young age reflect upon ‘My Vocation’ by Saint John Henry Newman. They begin to understand they have a mission; that they are a link in a chain, a bond of connections between persons. Year 6 receive a Rosary at the end of their time with us as a visible and concrete reminder that they are forever linked with our school.

  • Father Anton and Father David come to school on a weekly basis to support our children in Sacramental preparation, praying the Rosary and catechism.

Each class has a dedicated Gospel Value and throughout the year this value is referred to, discussed and reflected upon on a weekly basis in a variety of contexts. This ensures that as our children move through the school they develop a deeper understanding of the Gospel Values and how they are alive and relevant in the world today.
