Our School

About Us

St Aloysius’ College is a comprehensive school for Catholic boys aged 11-19. We take six forms of entry at the age of 11+. St Aloysius’ College is a voluntary aided school, proud of its Catholic tradition and privileged to be the oldest surviving foundation of its kind in the Archdiocese of Westminster. This year we are celebrating 140 years since the school was founded.

Here at St Aloysius we strive to achieve a sense of community within and outside the school setting in which the students may aim for excellence in all areas of development: academic, social, physical, moral, cultural and spiritual. We seek to use every opportunity to widen the horizons of student experience, through school visits and trips, as well as involving them in enterprises with the local community.

The school engenders a respect for the individuality and integrity of all human beings. Inherent in our respect for individuality we should recognise that all men and women are God's creation. There is a commitment to encouraging a strong Catholic ethos and the whole atmosphere of the school reflects this in religious lessons, assemblies, acts of worship, the availability of the Sacraments as well as in the attitude of students, parents/carers and teachers.

Our Mission Statement

The St. Aloysius’ College mission is to educate our students in an environment where Gospel values are defined and the St. John Baptiste de la Salle traditions of learning, justice, respect and common good are promoted.

In pursuing our mission, we seek to:

  • Promote a Christian community whilst respecting other world faiths.
  • Create a culture of high expectations and achievement which will enable students of all abilities to prosper, develop and take responsibility for their own learning.
  • Encourage students to respect and support others: their peers, their teachers, those in the wider community and particularly those in society who are marginalised.
  • Value each student as an individual of equal worth in an atmosphere of respect, tolerance and understanding so that they will grow into responsible adults with an appropriate respect for the environment in which we all live.

It therefore follows that all forms of prejudice and discrimination are to be condemned: that poverty and unemployment also destroy human dignity as does bullying in all its forms: physical, verbal and psychological. There is no way to peace except through justice. Churches, primary schools, local councils, voluntary organisations and local hospitals should all be used in this extension of experience.
