  London Oratory School Schola    (est. September 1996) Classical Choir of Men and Boys 
Print Friendly Page 
London Oratory School Schola The Schola was established in September 1996 as a means of providing Catholic boys a rigorous choral education within the maintained sector, something hitherto only available in the independent sector.  The development carried the full support and encouragement of the Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Hume.  The Schola sings at the Saturday evening Mass at the Oratory Church every week in term time and at other Masses and services during and outside term, and in the School Chapel during the week.  In addition to the liturgical commitment, concert work and touring will become a regular feature of the choristers' lives.

The Current Director is Lee Ward. The Schola's patrons are HRH Princess Michael of Kent, Simon Callow CBE and the renowned Scottish composer James Macmillan.
