Dear Parent / Carer
Welcome to St Aloysius’ College, a school of long standing tradition, having served the local Catholic community since 1879. In fact, we are privileged to be the oldest surviving foundation of its kind in the Archdiocese of Westminster. Many distinguished people have been educated here: two currently serving archbishops; Malcolm McMahon, the Archbishop of Liverpool and George Stack, the Archbishop of Cardiff, notable actors Sir Michael Gambon and Peter Sellers CBE, and many sporting stars including Joe Cole and Tyrone Edgar.
We seek to build on our many successes on a daily basis and were delighted, therefore, to be included in the Islington Building Schools for the Future programme, which has provided us with outstanding facilities and resources. We are fortunate in being the only school in the area swith our own 13 acre playing fields which have now been augmented by our new on-site Sports Hall with exceptional resources. Extensive computer facilities are available for boys to use in class and beyond to support their independent research. Most of our classrooms and laboratories have been fitted with electronic whiteboards and projectors. A separate music suite caters for the many pupils receiving instrumental tuition and for our successful bands and ensembles.
Our most recent Ofsted report in 2012 judges us to be OUTSTANDING in all core areas of teaching, achievement, leadership and behaviour & safety. Our excellent performance at GCSE is also testament to this - in 2014, 98% of our boys achieved 5 or more 5 A*-C grades with 72% including Maths & English. The subject breakdown of A*-C grades was as follows: 82% in Maths, 81% in English and 89% in Science.
In 2010 we joined Central Foundation, Highbury Fields and Highbury Grove in the Islington 6th Form Consortium and a full range of 16-19 courses are now being taught at the school. This has proved to be a great success with demand exceeding expectations.
We fully understand our responsibilities regarding your sons secondary education and the importance of him receiving every possible opportunity to extend his learning. You can be certain that St. Aloysius' College is determined to meet this challenge and offer your son a high quality education in a disciplined but supportive environment.
