Catholic Ethos

St Aloysius’ College is a Catholic school. As such, we are part of the Church’s mission to “make disciples of all nations”. We also have a responsibility to remember Jesus’ words “Whatever you did to the least of my brothers, you did to me.”

Therefore we look at the local, national and global communities for ways to fulfil our obligations as a Christian community.

Although we welcome pupils of many faiths, all Year Groups have Religious Education lessons. We aim to ensure that our pupils are religiously literate. This means that they have the knowledge, understanding and skills to think spiritually, ethically and theologically, and are aware of the demands of religious commitment in everyday life.

Our GCSE results show that we are succeeding in this.

Each year during Lent, we raise approximately £2,000 and have supported a number of charities.

Among others, we have supported the following projects and charities:-

Peramiho Girls School near Songea in southern Tanzania.

In Spring 2016, we received a letter from Bishop Franzelli Giuseppe of Lira Diocese in Uganda asking for help with repairing a failed village water at Bunga Hill Primary school. He had heard of us through contacts who we had helped previously helped. Through Non-Uniform Days, Sponsored Inter-Form Football and cake sales we were able to raise £500 to restore clean water to the community.

In November of 2016 the school responded to a request from Westham Secondary School in Kwazulu-Natal South Africa, and was able to donate £700 towards the establishment of a school library.

In October 2016 the case of Zeinab Sokian (threatened with execution in Iran) was taken up by the school and each Form Group was asked to sign a petition calling for clemency. Staff also supported pleas for justice and clemency by signing the petition.

We have been supporting Richard House Children’s Hospice each Christmas for years. We do this by selling “Wishing Stars” on their behalf.

Last Christmas, food hampers were prepared by all Form groups for distribution to elderly people in the local community. There was healthy competition between Forms to produce the best decorated hamper and win the prize.

Foodbanks in our neighbouring parish, St Gabriels, run by the Spiritan Fathers and St Theresa’s parish in Borehamwood, have also been supported by Non-Uniform Days where pupils brought in non-perishable foods to gain the right to wear their own clothes.

We have a busy programme of worship throughout the Liturgical Year. We are very fortunate to have a close relationship with the parish of St. Joseph, Highgate whose priests are enormously helpful in welcoming our pupils to Mass during school time; as well as saying Mass on Friday mornings and hearing Confessions. Prayer is an important part of the school day. Each day begins with a prayer at Registration or Assembly and everything stops at 12 Noon for the Angelus.

Our aim is to educate our students in an environment guided by Gospel values, where all can prosper and develop.

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 community cohesion are promoted.

In pursuing our mission we seek to:

1. 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.

2. Encourage students to respect and support others; their peers, their teachers, those in the wider community and particularly those in society who are marginalised.

3. Value all students as individuals 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.
