Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St Aloysius' College. I am very honoured to lead this wonderful school. The college was set up by the Brothers of Mercy in 1879. It is the oldest Foundation secondary school in the Diocese of Westminster. This college has served the communities of North London very well over the past 142 years, and we continue to do this by providing the best possible educational opportunities for all of our pupils.

We focus on the spiritual, moral, academic, social and cultural development of our pupils. Our school provides a very positive and caring environment which focusses on challenging our young people to succeed and supporting and nurturing them as they navigate their journey into adulthood. Staff at the school work hard to achieve our aim of quality and excellence in all that we do. We take our responsibility of working in partnership with parents very seriously.  Each pupil is treated as a unique individual and we aim to treat all pupils equitably, so each can develop their God given gifts and talents and move onto the next phase of their education equipped with the academic achievements and skills needed to succeed.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, high quality teaching and learning in a calm, well-ordered environment. We have high expectations of all pupils. We seek to educate our students in an environment where Gospel values of Justice, Respect, Learning and Community are lived. Our Section 48 inspection (May 2021) report notes that the school is making excellent progress towards being an Outstanding school.

St Aloysius’ College, a school steeped in history, has produced two senior members of the Catholic clergy in Archbishops Stack and Mc Mahon. There are many others with distinguished careers in Business, the Arts, Academia, Sport, Entertainment and Government to name a few. The Old Aloysians’ association is always pleased to hear from past pupils.

We look forward to welcoming you to our thriving school.
