This review is from: The London Oratory School: A Celebration of 150 Years (Hardcover)
My fear is that only parents and old boys of the school will buy this magnificent book. So many others ought to. Pauline Devereux has produced a masterpiece of good writing and solid research. If you are wise enough to get the book and read it you will never regret your decision. Yes, it is a history of one school, but it is a lot more than that. You will learn about the Oratory churches in England. You will see how education has changed, developed and (sometimes but not always) improved over the last 150 years.
Don't reject the book just because you have no connection with the London Oratory School.
