Kathy Burke and two minor professional footballers are listed as former pupils. Are there any sources?-- 14:15, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

The tribute to John McIntosh headed 'Summary' is a touching encomium, but "Wikipedia" is not the right place.Westminsterboy 11:29, 4 January 2007 (UTC)


This article is filled with POV. It needs to be cleaned up —Preceding unsigned comment added by Arisecanyon (talkcontribs) 11:04, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

James Stell[edit]

Please cite any references or sources regarding James Stell being a notable former Oratorian.

Allegations Concerning London Oratory Priests[edit]

In 2000 or 2001 the Daily Mail reported a case of alleged sex between a student and a priest at the school, who had recently died. Does anybody know if this fabricated or not? Can anyone source these Daily Mail stories? - anonymous




The article is more like a school prospectus than an encyclopediac article. The references tag has been there long enough to start to delete or organize material.

The threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth. "Verifiability" in this context means that readers should be able to check that material added to Wikipedia has already been published by a reliable source. Editors should provide a reliable source for quotations and for any material that is challenged or is likely to be challenged, or it may be removed.

The Patronal Festival[edit]

Is this the best place to list the patronal festival? It is full of self-references and its length overwhelms the article. It would be better to create a new article and link to it.

The notable Gerard Lee seems to be a mistake. There might be two men with the same name. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:50, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Notable Old Oratorians entries[edit]

Notable Old Oratorians entries are getting out of control. "Notable" is the key word that I believe is being taken too lightly. Many of the entries are uncited and questionable -- they are not even being listed in alphabetical order, just hastily tacked on. I believe a clean-up and monitoring is in order. trezjr (talk) 19:56, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
